Community


Good mental health is of paramount importance.


This is a core belief of mine and to that end, I am passionate to be a part of the following initiatives.

Wellington County and Guelph Integrated Youth Services Network

This program is a “one-stop-shop” for youth aged 12-26 designed to meet a wide range of needs across the continuum, including mental health, substance use, primary care, education, employment, training, housing and other community and social services.

Co-designed with youth, they are created to include peer services, outreach, and system-navigation services. Services emphasize quality, are timely, integrated and co-located, making it incredibly easy for youth to get what they need, when they need it. As a co-chair of the campaign to help this initiative reach its full potential, I truly believe this will become a real solution for real life problems.

Hamilton Centre for Psychoanalysis

​The Centre's mandate is to educate people on the unconscious determinants of human behaviour. We conduct seminars and workshops where the primary focus is to sponsor lectures, discussion and study groups, and courses in areas relevant to applied psychoanalysis.
As one of the Centre's directors, I believe that increasing awareness and knowledge of the importance of achieving and maintaining mental health and its impact on individuals, families, governments and corporations is key. We aspire to teach and apply concepts of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy that deepen an understanding of unconscious processes which affect our thoughts and our behaviour. Many of the current therapies being used today, while valuable, do not reach the depth of mental conflict that psychoanalysis does. Psychoanalysis has a particularly strong interest in anxiety, depression, and self-destructive behaviour.
