Registered Social Worker - Registrant #09260

BC College of Social Workers

Colleen’s training and therapeutic approach stem from an anti-oppressive lens that underpins her praxis - where theory and practise meet.  Anti-oppressive theory acknowledges that oppression can intersect in an individual’s life creating oppression in multiple layers, for example:  race, class, gender, and sexual identity or orientation. Colleen practises from an anti-oppressive lens and her approach is to work with people from a position of acceptance, understanding and empathy, while respecting their autonomy.
