Irene McCready, MSW, RSW

Irene McCready is a Registered Social Worker located in Vancouver providing counselling in person, online or by video. Whether your healing journey relates to anxiety, depression, relationship stress, low self-esteem or addiction, Irene will be a committed partner in it. In her own words:  “Where do you find meaning? What is essential to you? Stress is often the result of losing touch with what is meaningful to you.  If you are seeking to enlarge your capacity to feel, think and be in authentic relationship with yourself and others, I can help. I can help you pinpoint the obstacles that prevent you from thriving and develop strategies to remove them. You are the Focus.”

Irene believes that healing can be complex, and everyone’s experience is different. Her core belief is that we all have strengths of which we are sometimes unaware. You are not alone. Counselling is far more than a “quick fix” to solving problems. It is about creating deep and enduring change and finding new ways of approaching problems. In working with Irene, you can discover the possibilities that life holds. Through counselling, Irene is able to help you cultivate resilience and develop strategies to live a robust, full life.
