Gabrielle Rougeau, MEd, RCC

Gabrielle was born and raised in the Lower Mainland and

has been a French Immersion teacher in the Coquitlam school district for the past 10 years. Before teaching, she worked training first responders and office staff. She has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and is excited to start applying her skills here at TCIT.

Gabrielle’s first experience with counselling was as a client and what she enjoyed about the process was the ability to talk through her problems and learn more about herself in a supportive environment. As a therapist, teacher, and human she values connection and relationships. She lives by the principle “laughter is the best medicine”, enjoys meeting new people, and prioritizes putting people at ease. She loves a good conversation and has experienced giving and taking dialogue in therapy as a positive thing. She a straight talker who will always be honest with you in a caring and non-judgemental way.

Gabrielle approaches her therapy through a person-centred and feminist theory perspective and is a LGBTQA+ ally. It’s important to her to be continuously growing and learning from others, including challenging herself to embrace perspectives she may not have previously considered. She is continuing to develop her expertise as a life-long learner and is flexible in her modalities, pivoting to what best meets her client’s needs.

“My job is to create space for you to explore your experiences while feeling connected and supported. I know each person has their unique gifts, experiences, and challenges and I am here to be your companion on the road to discovery. I hope we can meet and connect to create a plan for your healing and self-discovery together.”
