Commitment to equity, diversity & accessibility

Holly is an ally to BIPOC and LGBTQ+ folks. She recognizes her privilege as a white cisgender settler to Canada. Holly is grateful for the opportunity to live and work in two beautiful British Columbian cities -- Vancouver and Kelowna. These cities are on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded lands of the Coast Salish Peoples (including the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations) and the Syilx (Okanagan) First Nation, respectively. Holly offers counselling sessions exclusively by video, which is based on feedback that it is a more convenient and accessible way to provide services.

Holly brings to you:

"...Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I’ll rise...”
