About Olga Morrow

Olga is a long-time resident of Prince George. She had a successful career in the beauty industry for many years as a stylist, educator and eventually a salon owner. While honing her skills of creating relationships and connecting with clients, she realized her passion for helping people, not only on the outside, but more importantly, on the inside. Olga’s compassion and empathetic personality helped her create a safe space where clients would share. To this end, she felt compelled to want to help in a more meaningful way and her love of research led her to return to school. She decided to change careers and further her education, initially earning her Bachelor’s in English and completing a year of the Education program. This wasn’t quite the right fit, so she carried on and subsequently completed her MEd in Counselling at UNBC.

Olga has extensive experience in managing mental health and addictions. She has trained with Gabor Mate in Compassionate Inquiry. She has a person-centred, trauma-informed, narrative therapy approach with specialized training in Emotional Focused Therapy (attachment based) for individuals, couples, and family.

Olga is a dedicated professional, committed to helping her clients co-create healing and find peace so they are able to live their best life and reach their full potential.

Counsellor – She/Her/Hers

Callista works with adults 18+.

*Callista is not currently accepting new clients*

About Callista Vagt

My name is Callista Vagt and I am an advocate for destigmatizing mental health in our community. This involves not only supporting those that struggle to maintain good mental health, but also talking openly about the challenges. Additionally, I advocate for Prince George to support the arts, hiking and biking trails, and community events, all of which have been proven by research to create good mental health in a community. I have been working as a counsellor for 3 years but have had a lifetime of experience that has brought me to this place. I have a Bachelor of General Studies from Simon Fraser University, and I focused my studies on Learning Disabilities and History. I have been a teacher in our district for 17 years, often working with vulnerable youth and their families. I am currently working as a counsellor in our Alternative Community Programs.

I completed the Masters in Education Counselling at UNBC, studying under Dr. Linda O’Neill, an expert in trauma counselling. I was exceptionally grateful to be mentored in my 10-month practicum by both Dr Linda O’Neill and noted couple’s counsellor Dr. John Sherry. I worked with a variety of clients, including couples, and though I am not qualified to counsel couples yet, I have learned many tools that I apply in my practice daily.

I gravitate toward trauma survivors and their loved ones, likely because I have seen how difficult it can be to find adequate care, but I truly enjoy working with all humans. I keep myself mentally regulated with outdoor activities, an awareness of my own desire to help others, and a firm belief in brain plasticity, all concepts I love to share with my clients if they are curious.

I adhere to the Rogerian theory that states that “everyone is the expert in their own lives.” I direct my counselling approach to what works for my clients. That being said, I am especially excited to share concepts and theories from Emotionally Focused, Attachment, Narrative, Dialectical Behaviour, and Cognitive Behavioural Theories.

Being a survivor of my own mental health challenges allows me a unique perspective of what hope can look like and how to find it. No one is a problem to be fixed, no matter the past trauma or present issues. I hope to communicate this to every client I encounter and help them to develop their own self awareness and personal compassion.

About Maddy Wilson

I have been a guest on Lheidli T’enneh territory (Prince George) since 2015. Since this time, I have been committed to learning about this place and building community, connecting especially with organizations providing low-barrier mental health and harm reduction supports to youth and adults. 

In my counselling practice, I strive to create a safe container for young people to explore themselves in relationship with their complex worlds. In my previous experience providing drop-in counselling services at Foundry Prince George, I supported youth to navigate a wide variety of life stressors and hard stuff, including challenges in relationships, grief and loss, identity formation, and overwhelming emotions or experiences. I am committed to honoring youths’ autonomy and strive to empower their own self-knowledge and meaning-making. I practice from a trauma-informed, person-centered perspective; while integrating an array of counselling strategies and philosophies, I am particularly interested in narrative therapies.  

Reaching out to connect with a counsellor or any kind of support is a brave and bold first step. If you think you might be interested in learning more about counselling and about me, I look forward to meeting you wherever you are at in your own process of discovery and unfolding.

About Keya Russell

I believe clients are the experts in their own lives. In our sessions, we can create a space for reflection, exploration, growth and acceptance. I often take an anti-oppressive approach and seek to understand clients within their environmental contexts.

I have always been curious about understanding the human experience, which led me to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Simon Fraser University and a Master of Social Work from the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). At UNBC, I counselled students and co-facilitated a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction group as well as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy anxiety group. I am interested in the benefits of using mindfulness techniques to support awareness and grounding.

My primary career focus has been supporting older adults and their caregivers as they transition to Complex Care. I have worked with families experiencing major life transitions, family system reorganization, caregiver stress as well as grief and loss. Providing support to families with complex dynamics has led me to be begin training in Emotionally Focused Therapy with a specific interest in families.

Overall, I strongly believe clients are resilient and capable. I am committed to supporting clients to live creative and empowered lives.

ADHD Coach – She/Her/Hers

Patrycja works with adults 18+ and parents

*Patrycja is currently on medical leave and is not accepting new clients*

 

About Patrycja Legut

My name is Patrycja. I am a long-time educator and volunteer in the community of Prince George, located on the unceded ancestral lands of the Lheidli T’enneh. I am a former college and university instructor, a forager, a gardener, and a wanna-be violinist. I am a mother of two children, one of whom has ADHD. When my child was first diagnosed with ADHD a few years ago, I struggled to find local professionals who had a sound understanding of ADHD. My child’s diagnosis set me on a path of self-discovery of who I really was as a parent and ultimately led me to become a certified ADHD life coach (CALC). I am now working with high school and university students, parents of ADHD-ers as well as with general adult population. I assist clients in maximizing the power of their neurodivergent brains while dealing with a multitude of challenges that ADHD symptoms bring on. Note: you do not need an official ADHD diagnosis to work with me.

Life coaching is not currently accepted by most extended health plans. Some employers have a Wellness Benefit which might encompass ADHD Life Coaching. However, several prominent insurance providers haven’t onboarded it as of now. It’s advisable to verify with your specific insurance provider or employer. Note: You may be able to ask your Employer to use your Professional Development fund to cover life coaching. If you have both autism and ADHD, you might be able to use your autism funding.

About Amanda Huettner

After being injured in a car accident, I had to re-adjust my life and career goals, and counselling felt like a natural progression. I hold a Masters in Counselling Psychology and Trauma Counselling Certification.

I collaborate with clients as equals, working together to discover how they can THRIVE instead of just survive big live events such as:

Severe injury, illness or new disability

Pregnancy, Infertility, IVF and Parenthood

Job, housing or financial loss

Abuse, neglect or violence (witness or survivor)

Loss of a loved one (including pets)

Gender and Sexuality exploration

I am trained in emotion-focused, narrative, cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, and solution-focused brief therapy models and work from an anti-oppression, fat positive and body neutrality perspective. I will honour your unique experiences, and use an eclectic mix of these approaches throughout the therapy journey.

About Emma Stevens

*Emma works with clients age 18 yrs +**
Seeking counselling takes courage. Engaging in counselling takes vulnerability.
My counselling approach is collaborative, compassionate and non-judgemental in order to build a trusting relationship while offering you a safe space to be heard and seen. You are the expert of your own life; I will support and respond to your unique needs as we explore your thoughts, emotions and behaviours together.
I have supported clients through depression, anxiety, trauma, suicide, loneliness, life transitions (eg. marriage, divorce, aging), parenting, relationship issues, as well as grief and loss. I also have experience working with groups and individuals struggling with perinatal and reproductive mental health, such as perinatal/infant loss (miscarriage, stillbirth, terminations), infertility challenges and reproductive trauma.
Depending on your needs, our work together may focus on practical tools to manage emotions and behaviours as well as discussions around self compassion, values, boundaries, attachment, systemic issues, and the impact of inter-generational experiences on your life.
Through my own experiences with depression, anxiety, grief, and motherhood, I understand the difficulties that major life changes can bring and the importance of seeking professional support. I value providing a compassionate, empathetic and constructive space to support you on your journey.
I invite you to book a consultation with me to explore working together.

About Angela Savage

*Angela works with clients 12 +*
I hold a holistic view to mind body wellness and use a collaborative approach in working with clients. I believe every individual is the expert of their life. My role is to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental environment. I use a strength’s based and person-centred approach that feels safe and empowering for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings.

I have been working in the healthcare field for over 15 years. I have worked in acute care, mental health, and most recently, in complex palliative care, as a nurse, prior to becoming a therapist. I believe everyone holds their own wisdom and knows what is best for them. My role is to listen and support, and hold space for the exploration process to occur, at a pace that feels comfortable for you. I have extensive experience supporting clients through grief and loss, life transitions, burnout, depression, and anxiety. I have experience with neurodiversity, specifically autism and ADHD. My own lived experiences and challenges have provided me with deep empathy and compassion, and the understanding of how vital support can be when navigating difficult and transitional life experiences.

I have worked extensively with women, men, and teens. I have an eclectic approach that utilizes narrative therapy, solution focused therapy, and somatic awareness, and I also incorporate principles of Hakomi within my counselling. I am certified in Gottman Level one and work with couples. Because of my 1.5 decades of work as a nurse, I have a unique understanding of medical conditions, medications, and surgical recovery. I am available for short term counselling using a Solution Focused Approach, or longer-term therapy, depending on what is needed and desired. I invite you to book a consultation with me and explore if working together may be helpful for you.

From Our Clients

“Tricia’s experience as a Doula and then as a counsellor gave her a well-rounded understanding of our situation that immediately made me feel at ease.  Tricia helped me understand the complexity of our loss and taught me how to sit with my grief so that I could come to understand and manage it from a place of compassion and patience for myself that I’d never before possessed.”

Anonymous

“I have known Olga Morrow for six years now. From my first meeting with her

I was struck by her emotional bravery and self honesty. Olga has one of the
most generous spirits I have encountered and I believe her clients will grow
in the presence of that spirit. Several years ago Olga asked me if I would be
a reference for her in entering graduate training as a therapist. I’ve been a
therapist for over thirty years, and it was one of the easiest references I’ve
ever written.”
Susan Armstrong

M.Ed. R.C.C.

“Tricia made all the difference in the world”

Former Client


When I first met Olga, what stood out for me was her kindness and gentle nature. Years later, I can say these are still her strongest qualities. I’ve personally had the privilege of learning from her and receiving counselling from her, and now refer women to her to benefit from her trauma informed, anti-oppressive practice.” 

Lynne Stewart

BSW, MEd, RCC

“Her compassion and professional demeanour promote free expression of ideas and emotions in the atmosphere of safety and mutual respect.  Tricia works hard to assist her clients in solving most complex personal issues.

I would strongly recommend Tricia Wright as a therapist for a wide range of mental health problems”
