Talia Beltgens, B.Sc.
After completing a BSc. in Human Ecology from the University of Alberta, Talia began to work with a variety of humans using this holistic framework.
In its simplest form, her work focuses on meeting each person where they are at, developing a common understanding of “What’s Next?”, and then offering support wherever that journey might lead.
In Alberta, Talia worked as a supervisor at the Women’s Emergency Accommodation Centre and was also a Program Manager for the Society for the Assisted Cooperative Recovery from Eating Disorders. Staff and clients alike came to know Talia’s office as a space to connect, feel safe, and explore their own experiences.
Talia continued her work in BC with Island Health, supporting individuals with significant mental health struggles as they developed connections in their communities. She also worked as a Youth and Family counsellor to support individuals and families experiencing addictions and other mental health concerns.
At present, Talia continues to diversify her skill set by supporting students with disabilities at North Island College, while also working with Equinox Therapeutic as a Wellness Coach, providing authentic connection and holding space for individuals seeking support in emotional processing and/or increased general wellness.
Through her own life’s journeys deep into the self, Talia has gained an intimate knowledge of how our bodies and minds can struggle to understand our world, and how connection and intention can create new meaning and new paths forward.
