Carol is a registered social worker who provides counselling services to children and youth. She practices from an eclectic approach that pulls from various evidence-based theoretical models. She has worked with children and youth who have experienced trauma and/or have struggled with depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicidality, grief and bereavement, or who have gone through significant life changes. Carol is particularly interested in working with children and youth with concerning sexual behaviour to prevent future victimization, divert criminogenic behaviour, increase prosocial aspects of life, and support parents’ or caregivers’ well-being.

She is a member in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Services Workers (OCSWSSW) and the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW).
