a top-rated drug rehabilitation, alcohol treatment, and trauma / PTSD program in British Columbia and throughout Canada, is proud to announce personnel changes in cooperation with Georgia Strait Women’s Clinic. Staff reassignments between the two partner programs are aimed to better optimize both client and staff health.
“Variety, as they say, is the spice of life and so it goes as well with therapy and counseling,” explained Casey Jordan, Chief Marketing Officer. “Reassigning our key personnel helps both the therapist and the client to take a fresh look at issues. Everyone benefits.”
Here is background on this announcement. Laura Cocksedge will join Sunshine Coast Health Centre in January, and a new counselor, Terra Janot, will start at Georgia Strait Women’s Clinic at the same time.
