Career Profile

Ms. Roach became a Counselling Psychologist because she always had a passion for helping others.  She has always been the kind of person who listens to what someone is experiencing and then tries to offer some guidance. Brendas’ favorite part about her job is seeing a patient/ client come to an “aha!” moment—that moment when a lightbulb goes off in their head and we realize that everything we have been working on together finally makes sense.  Ms. Roach does love group counseling work, simply because she gets to see others feeding off the energy within the group.
