Counsellor, MSW, RSW
Courtney is a Registered Social Worker with a Master's Degree in Social Work from UBC. Her background includes working with the disability community in Kelowna, BC, and has supported youth, adults, caregivers, and families for over 15 years.
She believes that every individual has great internal strength to discover themselves, what they need, and has the ability for positive change.
Her modalities of therapy include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness. However, she adapts her approach for each individual client and what they need.
Courtney values a holistic approach to mental health, and looks forward to collaborating with clients as they are the experts in their own lives.

Sharon has been the Executive Director of Reach Out since 1999, and her devotion for removing barriers to access counselling and support programs for young people, and families has remained consistent over the years. Sharon has a strong passion for youth mental health, and being a mother to four children in Kelowna has given her insight into the issues and challenges that youth face in our community. Since her start here at Reach Out, Sharon's hope is that when clients enter this space, they feel a sense of welcome, safety, and support. Whatever issues that our clients present, Sharon hopes that they leave with a few more tools, and/or skills to equip them for all of life's challenges. Sharon believes that counsellors, while needing to be educated and skilled, must have a natural gift to connect with and build trust with those that are vulnerable.
Levya recently returned to Canada after living almost 30 years in Israel. She has an extensive background in administration and loves to work with people and help in whatever way she can. She looks forward to greeting you when you arrive at Reach Out Counselling.
