Since college, I have become increasingly more passionate about working with children. Throughout my career, I have fallen in love with working with children/adolescents and advancing their mental health services. I have recently relocated to Toronto and have also fallen in love with the city. I am hopeful that I will be able to continue my passions in this new city. I spent 2 years volunteering with refugee children in which I tutored the children in their typical courses (math, reading, science), but also helped aid in their cultural transition. I worked alongside the children to help them develop life skills and adjust to their new surroundings. This would often involve a lot of play therapy with the children which I was later able to translate into a career. After graduation, I was fortunate enough to spend over four years working with children and adolescents in a behavioral health setting. This included youth from a multitude of different backgrounds including race, socioeconomic standing, sexuality, etc. who had been diagnosed with various mental health illness and/or behavioral challenges (Depression, Psychosis, Autism, etc.). I was taught a multitude of lessons on patience, building trust, and individuality. I believe in treating every individual as their own entity with their own problem set and problem solving approach. Often this includes working with the families and support system surrounding the individual. I intend to provide a safe environment for everyone in which we all feel supported. I pride myself on being creative and flexible which allows me to find the perfect way to reach the youth I work with. This relationship has to be built on the individual trusting you, however, so I am also a huge believer in talking about super heroes, sports, nails, or whatever interest each child has. Working with this population has never felt like work to me and that is why I am very excited about continuing to work in this arena.
