I am located and providing services in the Greater Victoria Area. On the traditional territory of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), Lkwungen (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.
I am a Two- Spirited person with over 30 years of practicing the traditions of the Haudenosaunee. I have been studying the time honoured teachings of my family, the Turtle Clan. My passion for the Sacred Teachings of the Grandfathers has given me a foundation to build my Coaching/Counselling Practice
~ Truth ~ Honesty ~ Wisdom ~ Courage ~ Respect ~ Humility ~ Love ~
After serving 20 years of Military Service I retired from the Canadian Armed Forces and began to pursue my passion; beginning my second career in Mental Health Services as a Life Skills Coach and Counsellor. I am a member with the Defence Aboriginal Advisory Group as a Spiritual Advisor.
I am currently a student at Rhodes Wellness College ~ I am grateful that this institution allows me to take clients in order to gain real experience from real people.
With these additional skills I hope to provide services to the Indigenous Communities and to Service Members and their Families
I call myself the Turtle Sage because it is a means to further connect to my culture. I am of the "Turtle Clan" and sage is a medicine used in clearing, being a counsellor in the helping field - connecting the that is a valuable asset, if not to those who might work with me, but something I value in myself ~ Brandon
