Liz Hagerty, MSW RSW
My name is Liz Hagerty and I am a therapist specializing in counselling children, youth and adults. I hold a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from the University of British Columbia and am registered with the BC College of Social Workers (#11384).
Over the past 10 years, I have been working with children, youth, young adults and families in a variety of settings including government, post-secondary, health care and community agencies. In my work I have supported people from diverse backgrounds with a variety of issues including: stress, worry, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, family and relationship difficulties, life transitions and personal exploration and growth.
I approach therapy from a client-centred and strengths-based perspective, working toward the goal of helping you thrive in your life. I believe everyone brings inherent strengths to therapy that serve as the foundation for growth and change. In our work together, I can help you identify these inner resources and offer tools and skills to build upon them so you can reach your goals and make meaningful advances in your life.
Kristen Hamilton, MA RCC
My name is Kristen Hamilton and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in good standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC #11167). I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Over the past 10 years, my professional experiences have been driven by my passion for working with children, youth, families and adults. I have worked in a wide range of settings and populations, including hospital, community and private practice.
I am passionate about helping youth and adults identify and overcome the obstacles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. I seek to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for youth and adults to explore patterns and beliefs that may be hindering them from making meaningful changes in their lives. Together, we can explore and process the impact past wounds and relationships may be having on your sense of self and your relationships. Through processing and beginning to challenge these beliefs, I seek to help my clients feel more empowered and confident in establishing and maintaining their relationship with themselves and others.
I am also a registered provider for the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) as well as a Mental Health Provider for the Short-Term Crisis Intervention Program (STCIP) with First Nations Health Authority.
