Joey Traa, MA Counselling, CCC, APC

Joey (he/him) is a Canadian Certified Counsellor and a life-long storyteller who believes the stories we tell about ourselves play a profound role in how we interact with life and its many challenges. Joey’s practice is person-centred and rooted in Narrative Therapy, which is built around a posture of non-judgmental curiosity, and the belief that people are the experts of their own lives. While the stories we tell about our lives can often be problem-saturated and negative, Joey’s practice functions under the belief that we are all capable of picking up the pen to craft new, life-giving, and sacred stories about ourselves. However, sometimes it takes the collaborative presence of a compassionate, curious, and creative other to help tap into the courage, insight, and inspiration needed to re-author these stories.

While Joey works with many types of clients, including people experiencing anxiety, grief, and depression, as well as those who are feeling stuck, low, or unmotivated, Joey specializes in working with people experiencing the ups and downs involved in life transitions. Whether it’s working with university students, people who are grieving, or people experiencing career changes, family adjustments, as well as relational and existential issues, Joey works to affirm and process the impact of these transitions, while also tapping into the opportunity, inspiration, and freedom that can develop through viewing these transitions through a lens of intention, curiosity, and compassion.

Through his Master’s level education in counselling, Joey’s foundations in Narrative Therapy are complemented by Person-Centred, Existential, Feminist, and Emotion-Focused therapeutic approaches, with an emphasis on social justice, meaning-making, and cultural literacy. Outside of counselling, Joey is a university basketball coach, photographer, videographer, writer, dog-dad, and lover of sports and pop culture.
