After over a decade at the University of Toronto providing coaching support to MBA students, I’m obtaining a Master of Social Work to broaden my skillset to include therapeutic work. I will be working under the supervision of Melissa Pyne, RSW, MSW from April to July 2024 for my final field placement to complete my degree. I lean most heavily on the Internal Family Systems framework, augmented by training in Solution Focused Counselling and Coaching, and Dialectical and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy to help people live more connected, joyful lives.
