Hi! My name is Gina Carnegie. I am a cis-gendered woman in a heteronormative relationship who has lived and worked in the Kamloops area since 2009. I love to spend time with my husband and son, as well as other family and friends, nature brings me peace, reading brings me escape and keeps my mind learning. I also enjoy video games, rock climbing, dancing, and music.
I have been working as a Registered Clinical Counsellor since 2014. Prior to that, I was a youth support worker from 2010 to 2013. I offer counseling for individuals seeking support with addictions, intergenerational trauma, anger, domestic violence, boundaries, anxiety, and depression. Much of my career has been spent working in Indigenous communities and I have had the honour of learning some of the teachings of Secwepemc Elders along the way.
I look forward to connecting with you.
I believe that each person is the expert in their own life. I also believe that your body knows what you need. This means that I am curious about the story you tell me with your words as well as the story your body has to tell. Through telling your story and listening to your body I believe that we can work together to make positive, meaningful changes in your life.
I believe that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and I value the courage it takes to reach out and talk to someone about the hard parts of your story. I am honored to be part of your journey.
