Who I Am
I completed my Masters of Counselling at City University of Seattle and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC #13769). I value the opportunities I have to connect through counselling with a wide range of people, facing a variety of challenges.
In addition to counselling, my background is as an outreach worker, facilitator, and advocate often working in support of people experiencing homelessness, poverty, critical illness, substance misuse, or political violence, while also navigating immigration, criminal justice, family protection, or mental health systems.
A particular ongoing interest of mine is working alongside people who have survived structural oppression and marginalization, and with those (particularly men) seeking to find accountability and healing for their own participation in damaging systems. My graduate research in this area focused on exploring positive anti-patriarchal masculinity.
The common thread throughout my work, is my passion for walking alongside people who are effecting meaningful change in their lives. Whether you are seeking to heal from some form of structural violence, or looking to build a more purposeful engaged life, I look forward to journeying with you.
I participate in regular clinical supervision with Vikki Reynolds. Visit her website at http://vikkireynolds.ca/.
