Addiction Counselor/Discharge Planner

Jordan Kearns

Jordan is no stranger to addiction counselling, having spent the past 3 years working one on one with clients to provide exceptionally unique counselling that is helpful, informative and an always positive experience. Her goal is to have every client leave her session feeling better than they did going into it. She consistently has clients leaving her sessions not only feeling better, but usually laughing and smiling- as she brings a sense of humour to what can sometimes be a dark subject.

Prior to starting her private practice, she spent her time in university working at residential treatment centers, where she learned the ins and outs of counselling drug users and their families. Aside from running her practice and working for Neworld, Jordan also currently counsels youth on probation for substance use with the YMCA.

After completing her honours BA at York University in Psychology, Jordan went on to complete training in addictions counselling, mental health counselling and suicide prevention.

Having family members who suffer from addiction, Jordan very much understands the depth and seriousness of recovery and is committed to changing the lives of the Neworld clients and their families.

With extensive knowledge of recovery programming in the province of Ontario, Jordan is determined to create the best fitting exit plan for each Neworld client. Her goal is to get to know the client in order to find out what type of after-care would be best suited for them, hence maximizing their chances of recovery.

In her free time, she enjoys reading self-help books, watching sports and playing with her “therapy dog in training”, Larry.

Yoga Instructor

Diane

Diane is a certified Yoga Instructor and Reiki Practitioner who started business after a ten year health struggle. As a stay at home mother of two at the time, she woke up one morning unable to walk or use her hands due to excruciating pain and inflammation. She was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, put on a mild dose of a chemotherapy drug to pull in her immune system, and was told she would be on it for life. Her normal life became anything but normal in so many ways. Refusing to accept that she would be on these medications for life, Diane relentlessly studied and read all she could about Rheumatoid Arthritis, found a very successful natural path for treatment and starting attending Yoga classes, Reiki sessions and meditating. She came to realize that the body can do amazing things. When we look after our body, mind, and spirit, our bodies are able to self-heal in ways we are not aware are possible. Through these methods, she is now drug free and no longer deals with pain. Diane provides Yoga and Reiki to high schools, senior centres, hospitals and private clients. Her mission is to share what she has learned with others through the practice of Yoga, Reiki and meditation to assist them on their journey towards health and happiness.
