Rochelle has always had an interest in building community and serving those around her. She turned these passions into a career as a Social Worker. Rochelle completed a master’s degree at Wilfrid Laurier University in 2015 and specialized in social work with individuals, families, and groups. She has worked in a variety of settings including community mental health agencies, schools, counselling services, and the criminal justice system supporting people of all ages living with mental health challenges. Rochelle understands the importance of having access to services when you need it the most and believes in fostering inclusive, safe spaces for all. Rochelle uses a variety of therapeutic approaches in sessions with clients because she recognizes therapy is not a ‘one size fits all’ service. She strives to provide a comfortable place for people to open up, be themselves, and explore areas of their life that are not working for them. Rochelle has additional training in addiction and maternal mental health and works from a trauma-informed lens. Rochelle describes herself as a “lifelong learner” and actively seeks out ongoing training and information, particularly in the area of perinatal mental health. Outside of work you will probably find Rochelle at a park with her partner and toddlers, out with a friend for coffee, or trying out a new recipe in the kitchen.
