What if your sensitivity
is actually your
greatest strength?

Amy Pinnell, MSW, RSW
Social Work Mentor & Consultant 

You’ve followed your passion for helping others into a career in Social Work, and while you care deeply about your clients, you end most days feeling drained, overwhelmed, and sometimes even resentful. As you drag yourself home at the end of the day, you are too tired or anxious to even think about what you need or want.


You find yourself wondering if your only options are burning out or quitting the profession altogether?


Imagine ending each workday with energy to spare. You finish your workday with a peaceful routine to close the day, and then head home ready to relax and enjoy time with your loved ones. Maybe you’ll even have time to get to that class you love so much tonight…


If this sounds like you, you've come to the right place!

A little more about me... 

I acknowledge that I live, work, and practice on the traditional territory of the Mi'kmaq peoples.  

My ancestors are primarily British and Scottish. My family and I are still researching how all of our ancestors found their way to Nova Scotia, Canada as much of this history has been lost to us.

I am a middle-class, able-bodied, able-minded, cisgender woman.

In Canadian society, this social location allows me many forms of systematic privilege. An essential aspect of my Social Work practice is maintaining awareness of this privilege and critically reflecting on my own assumptions and beliefs that are formed by my privileged position in society. 

Let’s Get in Touch

Thank you for your query! I will get back to you as soon as I can!
