My Role at the YWC:
Welcome! I am the Community Support Counsellor for the Transition stream. My role focuses on supporting youth exiting the child system transition to adult services.
I often help my clients work on how to navigate the healthcare system, connect to community resources, prepare for group or treatment, build empowerment and advocacy skills, find safe and effective coping strategies, utilize skills in an informal setting, address barriers, and identify and achieve personal and mental health goals.
I help to facilitate the Peer Support Circle, S.A.D. Club and have organized fun recreational groups like a Dungeons and Dragons Campaign (and soon to be Poetry Club).
It’s all about meeting you where you are at, and helping you along your journey!
