Elizabeth K

I have lived in the Peace River area for the past four years.  What continually amazes me is the valley and surrounding areas such as Lac Cardinal, Wilderness Park and others.  Originally from the Northwest Territories, I have learned to appreciate and love nature for the calmness it brings me.  I have a Master’s degree in Counselling and although I’m new to the Stepping Up program, I look forward to walking alongside you on your journey toward strength, confidence and healing.

Born and raised in Peace River, it holds a special place in my heart to be working in a community with people who’s northern spirit and challenges I can relate to. I value providing a safe comfortable environment by being a non-judgmental, caring and honest individual. I believe that services here can be as unique as those accessing it, and try my best to work with people in a way that works for them, wherever they may be in their journey. I am currently a Registered Social Worker with a Diploma in Social Work and look forward to helping all those impacted by family violence and answering any questions you may have.

I grew up in Central Alberta and currently live near Buck Lake, Alberta. I am excited to be able to join Stepping Up through Zoom. I am a Registered Professional Counsellor with over 15 years of experience working in a variety of settings. I work from a client-centered approach and believe that for change to occur there must be a genuine, nonjudgmental relationship between the client and the counsellor. I strive to empower you so you may build and draw upon your own internal resources and develop better coping skills to help deal with whatever life challenges you may encounter. Please remember this…you are worthy and can achieve anything you set your heart and mind to. I would be honored to work alongside you as you journey towards well-being.
