About

My name is Degan Walters (she/her). I am currently an intern counsellor finishing my master’s degree in counselling psychology.

This site has undergone many transformations over the years but it will continue to grow into a professional space for my private practice and related content. See below for information on counselling.

I am deeply grateful to be born on these lands & honoured for the opportunity to live, work, play, and learn on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsleil Waututh), s’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō) and sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) peoples.

Degan is pronounced like Megan. Anything else you want to know, drop me a line – degan@deganwalters.com. Please note that I have no interest in collaborating or sponsoring posts. Don’t spam me.

Counselling Services

We all have unique strengths and life experiences, and I believe that we all have the potential for therapeutic healing and personal growth. I welcome the opportunity to support you in your journey towards emotional well-being, and I will hold space for you with compassion, clarity, acceptance, and empathy. 

I have lived and worked in this area – the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil Waututh, Stó:lō, and Squamish people – for most of my life. It has been my dream to work with people in a helping and healing capacity, and after years of working in business, I am making the career change to counselling psychology. I have a background in dance and yoga, and like to use body awareness and movement in my work with people. I also enjoy making art and spending time outside with my dogs.
