I’m Jolene!


Hi there! I’m Jolene, a Registered Social Worker with a passion for empowering individuals on their journey to healing and personal growth. With a Master’s Degree from Dalhousie University and a Bachelor’s Degree from Thompson Rivers University, I’ve been practicing in the Kamloops, B.C. area since 2006.

I am deeply grateful to live and work on the traditional lands of the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc within Secwépemc’ulucw, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc. It’s an honor to share meaningful connections with Indigenous communities across BC in my line of work.

My approach to counseling is holistic, integrating various treatment modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Observed and Experiential Integration (OEI) trauma treatments, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). With substantial training and experience in Indigenous Populations, Intergenerational Healing, Suicide Prevention and Awareness, Mental Health, and Substance Use disorders, I’m committed to providing comprehensive support across the age spectrum.

In addition to traditional counseling techniques, I incorporate intuitive counseling approaches and energy healing into my practice. Trained in Usui Holy Fire Reiki, Levels I, II, and III (Master), I believe in supporting the entire system during transformative releases, fostering growth in intuition and soul connection.

My personal journey of healing, sparked by the loss of my father to suicide when I was 17, has shaped my approach to counseling. Through my own trials and triumphs, I’ve integrated lessons from both personal and professional experiences to create a balanced and integrated version of myself. Driven by the desire to continually evolve, I’m committed to following my calling to my highest potential while assisting others on their healing journeys.

In my work as a counselor, I’ve had the privilege of helping others navigate their shadows, heal wounds, and overcome obstacles holding them back in various aspects of life. Led by intuition and life purpose, I’m dedicated to helping others achieve the same.
