ABOUT

Patricia June Vickers

PhD, Registered Clinical Counsellor, Spiritual Director International.

The early years of my childhood were lived in Gitxsan territory, Hazelton, and the remainder of my childhood and adolescent years were in Coast Salish territory in Victoria. I’ve spent my life traveling between the north and the south appreciating the variations of cultural protocol and ancestral teachings all along the coast of British Columbia.

My cultural heritage weaves ancestry from the United Kingdom, Ts’msyen and Heiltsuk nations. I belong to the Eagle clan from the village of Gitxaala, British Columbia and carry two feast hall names from my village and from the Nuxalk in Bella Coola, British Columbia. I continue my studies of spiritual transformation, healing trauma, awakening, forgiveness and unearthing layers to find the authentic self, and to serve others with authenticity and integrity.
