“As a Human Services Practitioner I work with children and families in a range of context. For instance, as a Child and Youth Care Practitioner (CYCP) I work in collaboration with school teams to help implement proactive supports for children and youth who have difficulty coping in an education settings due to social, emotional and/or behaviour abilities; I provide services and supports to students with the goal of improving their self-defined or identified success; when relevant, I work within the Inclusive Education Policy frame work utilizing evidenced based practices for the delivery of specialized services to students; I assist students and families with life alterations, such as transitioning through various educational settings and community living. In collaborating with a team of educational professionals, counsellors and community agencies, I assist students and families in attaining interventions and coping strategies tailored to their unique needs to assist them in managing life transitions, navigating higher educational opportunities, exploring career aspirations, assessing independent living options, and participating as a community member. Currently I am working towards my Master of Counselling Psychology (MACP), which will enable me to provide clients with added services in real time.
