Nancy has over 25 years of experience in the human services field and boasts a varied background. She has spent 15 years working and living in Canada’s Arctic where she feels she learnt a lot about life and being resilient. Nancy spent most of those years helping small communities cope with trauma and grief, often acting as a front-line responder as well as follow-up clinical care.
A big part of her career was spent in corrections in youth facilities and as an adult parole officer, as well as family services, long-term care, elder abuse, children’s grief, sexual abuse agencies, walk-in counselling clinics and with a mobile crisis team.
Nancy feels drawn to working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, suicidal ideation, depression and PTSD as a result of a trauma, or traumas that they have experienced in their life.
