My life is changing…..

July 9, 2018

After serving the Hamilton and area community for 29 years and the Georgina (1/2 hr north of Newmarket) community for 5 years, Arlene and I are moving permanently to Georgina this fall.

Arlene grew up in Hamilton and I grew up in Toronto. Upon our marriage, I moved to Hamilton (Dundas) and we have lived here ever since, 29 years.

Although I grew up in Toronto, my parents bought a cottage in Georgina the year I was born. I have spent summers there my entire life. Almost 6 years ago we sold the cottage and bought a home one street over. With that, I began developing my practice in Georgina so we could spend more time there.

Along the way, our son grew up, got married and now we are grandparents.

With the move to Georgina, we will be somewhat closer to our kids and grandson who turns 1 this week.

We will be sharing in taking care of him one day a week and I will continue my practice in Georgina.

For my Hamilton and vicinity clients, I can continue to see you electronically with video conferencing. It is easy and I have been doing that for years with other persons who see me from a distance. By the way, it is only a 1hr. and 40min. drive to my Georgina location and people have always been driving to see me at distances greater than that, so people are always welcome to still see me in person if they would like to drive.

I apologize for any inconvenience or concern this may cause about my availability, but as with us all, life does bring about change.

Please note, I am not retiring, just changing. I love what I do and I am grateful to be of service.

I trust this makes sense and that people will  understand.

I am Gary Direnfeld and I am a social worker. Check out all my services and then call me if you need help with a personal issue, mental health concern, child behavior or relationship, divorce or separation issue or even help growing your practice. I am available in person and by Skype.
