Clarissa graduated from the University of Victoria in 2014 with a Bachelor of Child and Youth Care. During this program she worked in a variety of practicum settings, including a community centre and an Elementary School. Her degree focused on a training in running one-to-one and group therapy sessions, a variety of therapeutic techniques, and working with children and families at all ages and stages.
She worked as a Behaviour Interventionist and a Senior Behaviour Interventionist at Starbright Children’s Development Centre for over 4 years, prior to the closure in December 2019. She loves watching each client learn and grow in their own way, and will do her best to help them in their journey.
When she is not working, Clarissa is an avid baker and board game enthusiast.
