Tammy's Bio

I have been a social worker since 2004 and I have worked in many different fields, with foster children, women’s shelters and in the hospital on the mental health unit.  I have been a therapist for over 8 years and I truly love the work that I do.  

Life isn’t easy and a lot of us have faced many issues over the years, especially with the changes covid brought.  I believe all of us have lived through some traumatic experiences and have faced many difficult changes to how we live our lives.  I also believe that we can learn new skills to help us cope with these life challenges and take new steps to creating a life we want.  

Therapy is hard and taking the first step is the most important one.  If I am not the therapist for you I have many amazing colleagues who would love to support you.  Always remember one of the most important steps is finding a therapist you connect with.  

I am now Supervising Social Work Students, please reach out if this is something you are looking for.  

Many Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) and extended health care plans will cover services rendered by a Registered Social Worker.

Let us help you find your perfect match.
