Providing Compassionate and Comprehensive Care

Elizabeth is a social worker offering a range of psychosocial interventions to individuals and families following the diagnosis of a serious illness, into remission, at end of life and into bereavement. She is a partner with the Children and Youth Grief Network and has extensive experience supporting children, youth and adults facing complex illness, uncertainty and grief. Understanding that professional caregivers are impacted by grief and loss, Elizabeth offers support to care providers across disciplines and is also a clinician resource with the Physician Health Program at the Ontario Medical Association.

Vulnerability is not weakness, and that myth is profoundly dangerous.
