Norette Rene-Gougeon

She/Her

Therapist - MSW, RSW

Norette understands and appreciates the difficulties and struggles that come with parenting and the challenges that often arise when navigating the different stages of parenthood. She has worked with individuals to support them through the stressors related to being a parent and balancing this identity with other roles in their lives. She has spent her 10-year career working predominantly with individuals and families.

She is a mother of two and originally entered the field of social work due to her desire to provide support to individuals, parents, and families through the challenges that life brings. Norette meets the individual where they’re at and explores ways to build on their own capacity and inner strength to improve self-confidence in being able to achieve their identified goals.

"Norette takes a client-centered, strengths-based, trauma-informed approach when working with parents. She has worked with diverse families therefore she takes a culturally sensitive approach when working with individuals to identify both their challenges and goals."
