My Role at Dynamic Health

Dynamic Health Collaborative

When you book an intake call, there’s a good chance I’ll be the one calling you! I speak to clients who are looking for services and make recommendations for the right practitioner and treatment based on their needs. I will ask you lots of questions so that we can get a full picture of what’s going on for you, focusing on your mind, body, and relationships.

I also help facilitate collaboration among the interprofessional team so that you can get the best care possible!

What do I like most about what I do?

Dynamic Health Collaborative

Social Work is such a diverse profession, and every day is different! I love speaking to people and providing support and resources.

What does integrative wellbeing mean to me?

Dynamic Health Collaborative

Everything is connected – our mind, body, emotions, social relationships, and spirituality. When thinking about health and wellbeing, we need to consider all of these factors.

For Fun...
