Rebecca had the honor of graduating on Qu’wut’sun land from Malaspina’s Arts One First Nations program.  She went on to achieve a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Post-graduate diploma in Art Therapy, and a Masters of Education.   She is now a registered clinical counselor working in the Cowichan Valley.

In the Lower mainland Rebecca developed and facilitated aboriginal therapeutic services for families dealing with addictions, family violence, attachment disorders, mental health issues, abuse and residential school trauma.   In North Labrador, she had the opportunity to work with the Inuit people in family healing programs, designed to  strengthening families.  On Vancouver Island, she has maintained a private practice and therapeutic retreat centre.     

"I have had a wonderful career helping people move closer to peace in their lives, may it be a peaceful moment where the kids are sitting down at the dinner table, or a moment of still confidence in your own worth. It became clear to me that counselling is a service that allows change to move from being something daunting and painful to something clear, focused and attainable."
