Vocational Rehabilitation Counselling

As a Certified Vocational Rehabilitation Professional, my goal is to help employees who are experiencing disabling health conditions stay at work, return to work after an absence, or discover a new career. 

I am available to help with any aspect of the return to work process including:

  • Interest exploration

  • Level B psychometric testing (ability, aptitude, personality)

  • Transferable skills identification

  • Labour market analysis

  • Resume building

  • Interview skills training

  • Job search assistance

  • Management of barriers to employment

  • Assessment of accommodation needs
  • Gradual return to work planning
  • Follow-up to support maintenance of employment

Insurance Providers

If you are a case manager or representative of SGI, WCB, or a health insurance provider and would like to refer a client for vocational rehabilitation, please contact me.
I have expertise in working with individuals with acquired neurological injuries (stroke, spinal cord injury, TBI/ABI) and those living with chronic pain. 

Employers

Welcoming an employee back to work after an injury or illness can be a difficult time for everyone involved. I am available to consult on necessary accommodations, gradual return to work plans, job re-design, or training in a new position.
 
I believe in working collaboratively with employers, employees, insurance providers, and unions to produce the best outcome for everyone.
 
I am also available to give presentations to management and coworkers on promoting a disability-inclusive work environment. 
Please email me to discuss service options.
