About Jody Watson

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a professional Art Therapist. I graduated with a Master of Counselling from the University of Calgary and as an Art Therapist from the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute. I am a professional member of the BC Art Therapy Association, the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society.

My experience ranges from mental health and addictions, to working with trauma and anxiety. I have worked with individuals, couples, families, groups, adults, adolescents and children and also have experience facilitating educational groups and teaching in a college setting.

I am still amazed by the therapeutic process and by how much the people I have worked with have enriched my life. I consider it an honor to work with people and be a witness as they find hope, comfort and joy in their lives.
