Hi, I’m Cecily Carrillo. I am originally from San Diego, California and am finishing my last year in the Master’s of Marriage and Family Therapy program at Trinity Western University. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and theology, and practiced as a certified birth doula for four years.

Life tends to throw us curve balls. I believe the impact of accumulated painful moments from daily living can just as easily cause people to get stuck as a major loss or traumatic experience. Wherever you find yourself on the journey, I am committed to walking alongside you and helping you discover the stuck places that keep you from living out your values and the best version of yourself. My main priority is to create a supportive, nonjudgemental, collaborative space where you can confidently pursue healing and wholeness. I am passionate about empowering others and feel so honoured to get to do this work!
