So who is Blackcy Placidass?
I was born in Sri Lanka and immigrated to Canada in the 90’s with my parents and two brothers. I lived in Toronto most of my life and moved to Mississauga to grow my career path in the social services sector.
I have been in the helping profession for over 10 years. From a young age I have always tried to help teachers, students, and friends. I did a lot of volunteering at hospitals and libraries where I got to learn and grow as a person. I am a very down to earth person, easy going and open minded.
I completed my Honours Bachelor in Psychology and a Minor in Sexuality. After completing my degree, I was at a point in my life where I did not know what I wanted to embark on. I took a gamble and decided to focus on addictions and mental health which influenced my decision to complete a certification in Addictions.
I went on to complete my Masters in Social Work and to attain a greater understanding of how the municipal and provincial systems effect peoples live's. From working with youth, adults, seniors, different ethnicities and sexualities, I have come to realize that trauma seems to be at the root. I have dedicated my practice to help those struggling with something that has happened in their lives because I have recognized the effects it can have when it is not addressed.
I am committed to providing a safe and non-judgemental environment where people can feel comfortable to share their journey with me.

Blackcy Outside of Work?
Outside of work, I am a mother, wife and an at home chef. If you check out my instagram you can find motivational quotes, art work and tasty meals. I also enjoy anything crafty as it is my form of rest and relaxation. At the end of the day, I make it a priority to give some time to myself. Whether that is colouring, mindfulness activities, doing a puzzle or just catching up on my shows. Finally, I love to travel! If that means jumping on a plane or a bike, I am always looking for new adventures.
