- Sarah Adams, Clinical Counsellor
Sarah Adams is an Indigenous clinical counsellor. Her mother is Mi’kmaq from Nova Scotia and her father is British. She has a Masters degree in counselling psychology from the University of British Columbia and has been providing adult and youth counselling since 1998 (in private practice since 2007). Sarah practices within a framework of Indigenous Psychology that focuses on the importance of relationships (with ourself, parents, partners, children, and others). This psychology is based in collectivism: the belief that we are all connected and need one another and that our emotions can be impacted negatively or positively by the quality of our connections with those who mean the most to us. In the scope of her practice, Sarah will visit healthy attachments, boundaries, and communication of needs. She is a provider for the First Nations Health Authority and Nuu-chah-nulth Community services and has extensive experience working in the Indigenous community. Indigenous and non-Indigenous people are welcomed.
