CPA, CGA, B. Comms (Hons): Director of Administration and Finance

My journey as a designated accountant has primarily been in the non-profit community service industry specifically in education and healthcare. When the opportunity to work in Mental Health crossed my path I knew that the position of Director of Administration and Finance was the role I was working towards my whole career.

I started with Aulneau Renewal Centre in June of 2022. Since that time I have been able to expand on my knowledge and appreciation of mental health. Being able to learn the different approaches to mental health healing has made me a better professional and bring this learning into the role I have here at Aulneau. This agency has helped me to appreciate and be more empathetic to others in their own mental health journey and as well be able to impact and inspire others in taking on a mental health journey of their own.

MA (C.A.T.), RDT, CCC: Clinical Manager

I have been supervising therapists from different counsellor training backgrounds for the past 15 years and have 24 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and drama therapist. I have extensive training in Attachment assessment and interventions which I integrate into my clinical work, as well as my role as clinical supervisor to other therapists. In my work as a therapist, I work with children, youth, adults and families who have experienced simple and complex trauma. Over the span of my career, I have pursued ongoing professional development in many different areas of counselling theories, methods, approaches and interventions, and I place a very high emphasis on professional growth and development for those that I supervise. I love working with our team of enthusiastic and skillful therapists.
