I am a Social Worker. As part of a team, I work with the patient, the community, and a team of health professionals to provide patient and family-centred care.
I am a licensed practitioner with a specific educational background and training.
I help individuals, couples, families, groups, communities, and organizations develop the skills and resources they need to enhance their functioning. I accomplish this by providing counselling, therapy, and referral to other supportive services. I also respond, by using community development processes, to other social needs and issues, such as unemployment, racism, and poverty.
