About Helen

Experience and Training

I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with the College of Social Workers since 2010.

For the past 10 years I was a Child and Family Clinician in the Child Development Institute at Integra, an accredited children’s mental health agency that provides evidence-informed, therapeutic programs and services to children, youth and their families.

Integra provides services to children who are dealing with mental health issues complicated by learning disabilities.

Prior to my time at Integra, I worked for 5 years as a Social Skills Consultant and Program Coordinator at Camp Winston, a residential camp for kids with multiple diagnoses and challenging behaviours.
