Rocco Gizzarelli Professional Services
I have worked with children, youth, and families since 1996 with a focus on addressing the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence. I also have 36 years of progressive child welfare experience. I am a registered social worker who provides a wide range of counselling services. In particular, I have developed a specialty in treating adolescents, and adults who have engaged in sexually harming behaviours and with adult men who are survivors of sexual abuse. I have provided counselling to a wide variety of individuals, couples and members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
I place the highest value on providing an environment of understanding, non-judgment, warmth and compassion. The work I do is based on understanding people’s behaviour in the context of their experiences, the need for belonging and safety. I am committed to helping clients reach and live to their full potential.
