Canadian Certified Counsellor
Wolf Moiety – Dak`laweidí Clan

My ancestry is from Southeast Alaska and Yukon; I am of Tlingit and Northern Tutchone descent. I am a citizen of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations. I have approximately twenty years’ experience working in the helping field and received my Masters in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia in 2017. I am a FNIHB service provider for clients affected by Indian Residential Schools (IRS), MMIWG, and Federal Indian Day Schools (IDS).


To continue to work with our people from a wholistic, interconnected, and culturally competent approach including both traditional Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing in collaboration with mainstream counselling practices that includes cognitive, behavioral, psychodynamic, and motivational interviewing approaches with a client-centered approach. I believe culture is healing.
