Meet Our Team

Our staff is our greatest strength. Professional clinical counsellors to support staff offer a continuum of experience, specialized training and education. Professional development is an inherent value at our agency and we take pride in offering current, strength-based best practices in the programs we provide.

NSDP operations are overseen by our Executive Director and supported by an administrative team, and program managers/staff. NSDP employs 35 individuals and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of philantropial members of the community. 

In addition, all staff and volunteers undergo a criminal record check and are required to adhere to NSDP Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest policies. Clinical staff who are registered with a professional association are accountable to NSDP and their professional association.
