Throughout my career as a Registered Social Worker, I have had many opportunities to act as a consultant to various groups and communities. I have facilitated consultations and needs assessments in communities and organizations, and prepared and delivered written and in-person reports to management and boards. I have developed curriculum and facilitated workshops on issues such as substance use, addictions treatment and harm reduction, sexuality and relationships, and gender identity. I strive to create safety for all participants while meeting specific goals and timeframes.
Previous consultations have included the following:
As a presenter and facilitator, I offer an upbeat and energetic approach which integrates participant involvement and focuses upon building trust and communication. I tailor the delivery method to the needs of the specific group at hand, and adapt to the unfolding dynamics.
- Boston Bar First Nation - Community Wellness Series, Critical Incident Debriefing
- Correctional Service of Canada - Offender Discharge Resource Guide
- Esquimalt First Nation - Youth AIDS Awareness Conference
My aim as a consultant is to help create lasting change for individuals and groups, and to help build healthy communities with the capacity to find answers that are right for them.
