Rebecca Namunyu Dolyniuk was born in Kenya (Africa) but moved to London, England with her parents at a very young age. Upon returning to Kenya, she completed her Grade 12 and a post secondary diploma and then worked for a few years before moving to Canada for further studies.
As an adult, Rebecca found herself bitten by the travel bug and has traveled extensively within Canada (both east and west coasts and in between)as well as abroad. She has visited the USA states of Oklahoma, North and South Carolina, New Jersey, New York, The Middle East (United Arab Emirates, Dubai) and China (Guangzhou).
Rebecca is a skilled clinical social worker/therapist who is passionate about helping people to overcome life challenges. She has a Bachelor of Social Work degree (BSW) and Master of Social Work degree (MSW) from the University of Manitoba. She has experience working in the areas of mental health, child welfare, and intimate partner abuse programs.
For the past ten years Rebecca has worked extensively in offering counselling services to children, youth, individuals, couples and families in Winnipeg, Anola, Brandon, Kenora and Fort McMurray, Alberta, either in person or via video calls. Rebecca has also worked on the reserve to bring healing and hope to the communities up north.
Rebecca has witnessed first hand, a lot of amazing changes in her clients and strongly believes that change is always possible even when all hope is gone, we must keep trying without giving up. Sometimes this requires seeking help from professionals…but that is okay.
Rebecca’s goal as a counselor and therapist is to provide a supportive and accepting space where her clients/patients can feel heard and validated as well as challenged to progress and thrive.
Languages: English/Kiswahili (In the process of learning French).
