A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

Gabriel Roy-Wright, BA, MC, CCCQ

I grew up in Saskatchewan but was called to the mountains and relocated to the Canadian Rockies at the age of eighteen. Since then I have lived abroad, on the coast, and now call Rossland, BC my permanent home. 


My upbringing instilled in me a strong desire to contribute meaningfully to my community and society. I have always found I am at my best when I am able to help others in a significant manner. My drive to contribute coupled with an interest in human decision-making led me down many paths.


On my journey to becoming a counsellor I completed a number of experiences that sharpened my ability to understand, listen, and empathize with others. A few of my highlights were: getting an undergraduate degree in psychology, working as a research assistant, volunteering to teach underserved youth snowboarding, working on a crisis line, and lastly, as a support worker– integrating adults with autism into their community in Trail, BC.

I completed my practicum at Child and Youth Mental Health services (CYMH) under the guidance and supervision of Sean Larsen. It was under Sean’s expert guidance that I found my clinical focus. I have always loved working with children and youth, but my time at CYMH exposed me to the benefit that I could bring to youth with mental health concerns.


I honour confidentiality, openness, connection, and engagement. I seek to incorporate these values into my counselling practice. My clinical focus is youth but I am passionate about helping clients from any age group: children, adults, or seniors.  I want to empower my clients through education and collaboration to foster independence and resilience.
