“What we don’t need in the amidst of struggle is shame for being human”

Olga Morrow, B.A. (English), MEd (Counselling), RCC, CCC
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.
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.”
“I have known Olga Morrow for six years now. From my first meeting with her
“Tricia made all the difference in the world”
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.”
“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”
