Teri Varcoe, MSW RSW

Victoria, BC

I provide a down-to-earth, non-judgemental space where you can feel safe to tell your story, express your concerns and feelings, and learn to identify and engage your strengths. My approach varies depending on your unique needs and circumstances. I work within a framework that is trauma-informed, holistic, practical, strengths-based, and takes into account the complex world in which we live.  Come away with practical strategies, solutions and a new perspective.



Teri Varcoe, MSW RSW

I am a Registered Social Worker with a Master of Social Work degree with eighteen years of counselling experience. I provide counselling in an accessible home office in Victoria, British Columbia.

There are many profound challenges and transitions we experience throughout life. We need not face them alone, overwhelmed by shame and stigma.

I enjoy working with adults of all ages who may be struggling with issues such as low self-esteem, stress management, grief and loss and other life transitions, relationships, mental health issues, disABILITY including acquired brain injury, chronic health issues and terminal illness including, not limited, to dementia. I have a special interest and vast knowledge and experience working with family caregivers and professional caregivers alike. 

Besides my work as a counsellor, I am a mom of young children, a spouse, daughter, friend, sister and granddaughter.
