I am a Registered Social Worker based in London, Ontario, and an Associate at Dr. Amanda Bell and Associates. I completed my Master of Social Work degree from Renison University College at the University of Waterloo in 2019 where my focus was on the social context of children’s health and well-being. As a social worker I am committed to lifelong professional growth, and completed my Basic EMDR training in November, 2018.
My professional experience has been primarily working with children and families, including supporting families with children with intellectual disabilities. I have worked in child welfare, preventative youth mentoring programs and am currently employed by the Thames Valley District School Board as a School Support Counsellor. My areas of professional interest are trauma work with children and youth, the impact of social conditions on child trauma and maltreatment, preventative interventions and post-traumatic growth.
I am a husband, father, dog-owner, former rugby player and a giant nerd.
