DR. CHRISTOPHER KINMAN, MSC, PHD, RCC
I have been a counsellor and family therapist for over 30 years, during that time I have worked with a rich diversity of people. Counselling and family therapy is a work that I love. I have found that people carry with them, in their own lives and networks, the strengths, the relationships, and the gifts that enable them to move through the most challenging of situations. I have found that I am able to help people find the possibilities that they need to cope with life’s various challenges.
My work has had many unique focuses through the years, including: work with children and youth, family therapy, addictions, working with individuals and families where there is a mental health concern, working with individuals and families where there are legal and criminal matters pressing upon them, and working with a wide diversity of individuals and communities. For almost thirty years I worked with one particular First Nation -- my time with this and other indigenous communities has had a profound influence on how I work with all people.
I also am a teacher in a Master of Counselling program. Because of this I am conversant in a wide variety of approaches to helping people.
