gabriel keczan art therapy somatic counselling nelson bc

I have called these mountains home for 17 years and feel deeply connected with the mossy forests and pristine waters.

I combine Art Therapy and Somatic Counselling with a deep commitment to meeting each client where they are at. With a background as a Hatha Yoga instructor I have an integrated body-mind approach to my work. I am a Birth Psychology Educator for new parents. I also facilitate nature-based rites of passage programs with youth. I work with families through community services, deliver art therapy in schools, and work privately with youth, couples and adult individuals.  I specialize in facilitating personal growth work with men at all ages of the life cycle.

I live with my beautiful wife, our two sons and my two bonus daughters in the beautiful West Kootenay Region of British Columbia, Canada.  I was raised with four sisters on a farm in and a large extended family in Beamsville, Ontario.  I love the mountains and waters of the Columbia Basin and recognize the un-ceded homeland, xaʔxáʔ tumxʷulaʔxʷ of the Sinixt people.
