You may be able to submit receipts to you insurance provider if you have extended benefit coverage, as I am supervised by Graham Watson, MSW, RSW. Check to see if your benefits include Registered Social Work.
Deb can assist with issues such as anger management and emotional regulation, anxiety, friendship skills, bullying, self-esteem building, ADHD, grief and bereavement, separation and divorce support, supervised access and more.
She has a special interest in children who are caught up in the cycle of bullying behaviours and welcomes the opportunity to assist young people in dealing with these issues.
A child engaging in activity-based learning will remember the skills with more ease because of the "fun" quotient!
