Counsel Culture Canada


Hi, I’m Kellyanne

Born and raised in beautiful British Columbia, surrounded by water and wildlife, I am now located in central Calgary, enjoying the mountains, beautiful fiery orange and red sunsets and the somewhat well-designed international airport that takes me quickly to a much hotter and tropical destination.

I am a self-proclaimed horrible yogi that enjoys mindfully falling out of my poses, I can usually be found hidden behind a twice-read mystery book, or binge-watching a real housewives series (my guilty pleasure).

Prior to obtaining my Masters in Counselling Psychology and my Canadian Certified Counsellor designation and Registered Clinical Counsellor, I completed my degree in Psychiatric Nursing at Douglas College. I have worked as an RPN on several adolescent units as well as adult crisis stabilization mental health and addiction units. I have had the opportunity to teach in multiple health sciences programs, teaching Health Policy in Psychiatric Nursing, Pharmacology, Loss and Grief, Counselling Interventions in a Counselling Therapist Diploma Program and Communications in Health Care for Postgraduate Diploma in Canadian Nursing for foreign-trained nurses.
