Clinical Counselling Victoria
Greetings, my name is Tanya Kirkland and I have been a grateful visitor on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen and WSANEC people since 2001. I am of Cree (Canoe Lake Cree First Nation) and English ancestry.
I was born and raised in Prince George.
I work collaboratively from an Indigenous, holistic, strengths based perspective. I have a genuine interest in supporting all people and find it an honour to listen in a gentle, calm and compassionate manner meeting each person where they are at. I see people not only as
individuals but also understand their deep and sometimes complex connections to family, community, culture, the land, systems and
institutions. My desire is to create a safe space where people feel comfortable exploring their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual
aspects of themselves as they navigate the world.
I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (#10003027). I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from UNBC in Prince George, and a MA in Counselling Psychology with a focus on Indigenous Communities Counselling Psychology from UVIC. In addition to my private practice I also work at Camosun College providing Counselling services for Indigenous students.
