My name is Amanda Telford, your virtual Ontario Social Worker. I am a Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist, offering a variety of social work services in Ontario. I graduated from Carleton University with a Masters in Social Work, and am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers.
I am very passionate about mental health. I have worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, community mental health agencies, child welfare, community health resource centres, homeless shelters, school boards, and private practice. I am currently providing mental health services in person in Ottawa near the experimental farm, and virtually across Ontario.
I will be opening up an office in Arnprior, where the rivers meet, in the fall of 2022. I work with children, teens, adults, couples, and families.
As a psychotherapist focused on your needs. we will work together during your time of difficulty. We will identify what your unique needs or goals are, and explore your challenges together. We will go at a pace that is safe and comfortable for you. We will develop coping strategies to help you on your recovery journey.
When I am not working, I am off enjoying camping, kayaking, hiking, reading, time with my friends and family, and of course, my big rescue dog, Cujo, and my two cats, Ying and Yang.
