More about Chanelle Wilton

I have a special interest in working with depression, anxiety and trauma, and assisting individuals in processing painful emotions.

In my work with Child and Family Services I gained significant experience working with difficult custody and visitation matters, and this is an area of particular interest to me. I also have experience working with children struggling with various behavioural, developmental and social challenges. Additionally, I am interested in the field of trauma therapy, and during my practicum with The Family Centre I had the opportunity to work with individuals facing a wide range of trauma related issues.
