Leo has been working in the health field for almost 10 years. Including work in the Comprehensive Community Service program, Mental health care, Development disabilities and AODA facilities for adults. Leo has over five years experience in martial arts including 2 years of experience teaching children and teenagers martial arts. Leo grew up helping care for his nieces and nephews. Leo also has a very energetic 2-year-old son.
I see myself through the clients' eyes as I grew up without a father and struggled with learning disabilities. I understand the kind of impact it can have on someone's life. My experiences in life have made me compassionate, empathetic and patient. If I had learned some of the tools and coping skills that I know now back then I would have applied them and helped others heal sooner. Healing has a ripple effect and I want
to teach those life skills to help my clients heal and succeed in life.
Leo's goal is to provide clients with help in focusing on the positive, discovering purpose, overcoming challenges, and teaching basic coping skills and life skills. Leo will encourage hobbies, and focus on nature activities to practice mindfulness, meditation and yoga to learn how to ground yourself and be more self-aware and live in the present moment. Leo is supportive and consistent in showing up for those he supports.
