Child and Youth Care
Chelsea joined the team in 2022 as the full-time Child and Youth and Behavioural Consultant. She fell in love with Nova’s Ark in 2021 as she was completing a placement throughout her degree in Child and Youth Care (CYC) at Toronto Metropolitan University. She was immediately drawn to Nova’s Ark’s ability to provide care for a variety of people in a way that intersects with her practice style and CYC methodologies. Chelsea’s role allows for the implementation and execution of individualized intervention plans from a relational and strengths-based approach. She utilizes the Zones of Regulation to further our participant's social thinking and self-regulation skills guiding them toward their program goals! She is passionate about building transferable classroom skills for the younger participants to allow for them to be successful at school! Further, Chelsea provides direct mentorship to CYC college and university interns and Support Staff on their journey toward becoming CYC practitioners. Currently, Chelsea is continuing her education by completing her Master of Arts in Child and Youth Care at TMU, specializing in the therapeutic stream.
