Andrew McKenzie

Andrew McKenzie comes to his clinical work with insight and knowledge gained through experiences both as an adoptive and birth parent, as well as over a decade of working with at-risk children in the British Columbia public school system.  Andrew provides counselling services through a lens of practice which values and promotes respect for the most genuine parts of the self, through an attuned focus on the therapeutic relationship he forms with clients.  Andrew views mental health through a developmental lens, acknowledging that many forms of current distress or suffering are rooted in past experiences which we often did not have any control over (especially as children).  As a clinician who practices EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, Andrew collaboratively works with clients to identify early memories and experiences which may be causing challenges in current functioning, or preventing personal growth.  Andrew also draws from orientations such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy) in the work he does with clients.  Andrew combines all of these modalities through the overarching lens of the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT), which examines the most developmentally-appropriate order to place various therapeutic elements in.

Andrew McKenzie is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (RCC# 16543)

It is a privilege and an honour to live and work in the unceded traditional territories of the Pentlatch, E'iksan and K'ómoks First Nations
