Building Stellar Humans.
After over a decade of working in Law Enforcement, Andy (affectionally know as “Officer Andy” to the youth he has worked with) retired from law enforcement to spend more of his time and energy pursing the thing he really is passionate about; empowering young people in an increasingly tough world.
During his law enforcement days Andy was committed to community policing with a strong focus on building relationships with the youth in the schools. Countless hours spent in High School parking lots building positive relationships with youth. There to build bridges, not to ‘jack them up’.
Another particular point of pride has been his work with the local Emergency Women’s Shelter running educational programs in the Junior and Senior High Schools.
All of this experience has culminated in building practical skills workshops to help youth grow their confidence and understand their impact in their world.
Armed as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and holding a Master of Arts (MA) in Counselling Psychology, Keyva has extensive experience with with families, children and vulnerable populations. Her focus has always been on connecting and relationship building with her clients making the process personal, and comfortable for her clients whether she is using solution-focused, transactional analysis, mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy or acceptance and commitment therapy. Each interaction is based on the client's needs and not on a pre-determined therapeutic process.
Keyva is truly as stellar human. Outside of her amazing work professionally she has rescued 2 big ole pups that keep her busy with training, dog park trips, and big dog cuddles.
Keyva is a regular on our Stellar Human Project Podcast so that when we step into out of the coaching world and into the Mental Health world we are doing so with appropriate knowledge and the guidance of a pro.
