MA, MC, RCC
Elize Fitzgerald is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BCACC. She believes that supportive therapy can provide a roadmap to intentional change through increased self-knowledge, greater self-worth, and acceptance of present-moment reality. Her counselling perspective is strengths-based, client-centered and collaborative. She believes every person deserves a life of connection and meaning free from the pain of addiction.
