My name is Irene Pugliese and I am the Manager of Wellness Services at Student Health and Wellness, Thunder Bay campus.  I joined the Student Health and Wellness team more than 10 years ago as a part time counsellor.  Currently I provide counselling services as well as coordinating the counselling and health promotion programs.  I have a Master of Social Work degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and I practice from a client-centred framework with a focus on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness based interventions.  I also have a strong interest in Resilience habits and facilitate brief "WellU Resilience" sessions to promote the uptake of these habits.
