Background & Experience

I am a Clinical Case Manager for a community mental health team. I also practice as a Registered Social Service Worker (RSSW), providing counselling and consultations for those with concerns surrounding mental health and substance-use. This includes work with first responders, non-profit organizations, marginalized populations, and frontline community involvement. Along with my case management work, I provide harm reduction, crisis intervention, social services and overdose response at a Supervised Consumption Site in the City of Toronto. I also train frontline workers in emergency response and crisis intervention. I use my experience to inform organizations by enhancing addiction and mental health awareness and organizational capacity to support the struggles faced by so many.

My goal is to increase mental health awareness and resiliency among communities and workplaces. This includes developing and delivering effective, evidence-based training on mental health and substance-use topics. I create customized workshops to enhance mental health resilience, peer support, and the capacity to support those in psychological distress. I have developed engaging evidence-based workshops such as Mental Health Awareness, Mental Health & Crisis First Aid, and Mental Health For First Responders.

I built a strong foundation of clinical experience assisting critically ill and injured persons as a Primary Care Paramedic. During that time I developed emergency response expertise, crisis management skills, an increased capacity assisting those with concurrent disorders, and understanding of how to navigate Canada’s healthcare system. My clinical practice as a paramedic combined with being an active harm reduction and mental health professional has promoted an open-minded, compassionate, trauma-informed approach.
