Our Team

Hello and Welcome. All of our clinicians live, work, and play on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded Indigenous territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

All of our clinicians are registered social workers* whose practice is grounded in values of social justice and equity, and incorporate a client-centered, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and neurodiversity- and identity-affirming approach to counselling and therapy.

*QUICK FACTS ABOUT REGISTERED SOCIAL WORKERS
(from http://www.bcasw.org/utility/registered-social-workers-in-private-practice/)

  • Registered Social Workers (RSWs) are one of the largest providers of mental health services in North America. With university degrees primarily at the Masters or Doctorate level, they are skilled clinicians who provide counselling and therapy for a wide range of personal, family and work-related problems.
  • Many RSWs have undertaken additional credentialing, meeting prerequisites and passing rigorous examinations to become a Registered Clinical Social Worker (RCSW).  A Registered Clinical Social Worker (RCSW) is qualified to utilize the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental, emotional, behaviour disorders and conditions, for the purpose of providing psychosocial intervention to enchance personal, interpersonal and social functioning.
  • Because Canada Revenue Agency recognizes Social Work as a health profession, the clinical counselling services of Registered Social Workers are HST EXEMPT. In addition to RSWs, only Psychiatrists and Registered Psychologists qualify for this exemption.
  • Social Work is a is legislated profession governed by a regulatory body, the BC College of Social Workers, and all RSWs must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
