gabriel keczan art therapy somatic counselling nelson bc

I am passionate about the intersecting realms of healing, art, dreams, sacred space, play, body-movement and the everyday poetry of existence.  

I have 14 years of experience working in human services in a wide range of capacities.  I studied at Kutenai Art Therapy Institute and my Somatic Counselling training was with Mariah Moser.  I have training in Pre and Perinatal Attachment Psychology with Myrna Martin. I work with families through community services, deliver art therapy in schools, and work privately with youth, couples and individuals.  I specialize in facilitating soul work for men at all ages of the life cycle.

I live with my beautiful wife, our son, two bonus daughters and our cat 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.  I love the mountains and waters of the Columbia Basin and recognize the un-ceded homeland, xaʔxáʔ tumxʷulaʔxʷ of the Sinixt people.
