The Dr. Vibe Show

Black Canada Talking™ is a live online event that provides Black Canadians opportunity to give their takes and POVs on stories that are of importance to them.

Our guests on the September 18, 2022 episode of Black Canada Talking™ were Techenia Archer and Derek Woodruff of Renew Supervision Services.

Renew Supervision Services facilitates a safe environment for children and families who require supervised access visits.

They also provide professionally facilitated online parenting classes and anger management courses to parents looking to navigate the challenges of parenting during a time of separation or to gain better control over their emotions. Their programs are private and conducted one-on-one online. For that reason, Renew’s content is tailored to meet your specific needs and address your concerns. Because sessions are private, their scheduling is flexible so facilitation times can work around their client’s professional and personal commitments. All programs come with a certificate of completion and letter outlining topics discussed to better support those with court orders.

Owned and operated by a caring team of professionals in the legal and social services fields, Renew was created for families looking for natural in-home and community environments. Their highly trained Supervised Access Facilitators seamlessly fit into the natural routines of family life, and are a supportive presence during walks, trips to the local park or pool, or quiet family time within the home.

Regardless of the access site, Renew’s aim is to ensure that parents continue to have access to their child(ren) and costs should not be a barrier. Renew’s services are available to families throughout the Greater Toronto Area, Ottawa and Kingston.

Techenia Archer is a registered Early Childhood Educator (RECE, B.ECS) and the Renew Supervision’s lead parenting course facilitator. Renew Supervision Services facilitates a safe environment for children and families who require supervised access visits, parenting courses and reunification therapy.

Techenia has over ten years of experience working with children and families. Techenia uses her education and lived experience to help children and families across Ontario.

Derek Woodruff is the Co-Founder of Renew Supervision Services, a company which facilitates a safe environment for children and families who require supervised access visits, parenting courses and reunification therapy.
