If you have or are still experiencing an abusive relationship or gender-based violence of any kind, I can help you develop a safety plan, build confidence, access your legal rights and obtain the social services and supports you need. If you are a newcomer and you need interpretation we can provide it. I’ve being working with women who experienced violence for many years and have also experienced domestic abuse. I will be here if you need any kind of support.

Healing Together: Fostering Safe, Strong Families

The Healing Together program aims to enhance newcomer well-being with an emphasis on preventing and healing from intimate partner violence (IPV) and experiences of post-conflict gender-based violence. This program supports women who are permanent residents through one-on-one counselling and a women’s wellness group that considers the cultural diversity and specific needs of newcomer women.

One-on-One Counselling

A private conversation with the counsellor, where you can share some of the challenges you are experiencing. The counsellor will be able to support you in finding solutions.

Women’s Wellness Group (once a week for 10 weeks)

Group conversations with a counsellor and other women. You have a chance to make new friends and be in a safe place to share your story with each other, and talk about different ways you can overcome the challenges in your life.
