A message from Kevin

Hi, my name is Kevin Barry, and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, and Registered Social Worker with nearly 20 years of experience working in the field of Mental Health & Substance Use. I am currently a coordinator at the new Surrey Mental Health & Substance Use, Urgent Care Response Centre. In 2016, I co-founded INSPIRIT Health Group which is a successful integrated health clinic located in Downtown, Vancouver. In 2017, I established Walk and Talk Therapy which was a new and innovative way to provide counselling. In addition to in-person therapy, I have also provided virtual counselling to clients across BC.

My areas of expertise include life coaching, working with individuals struggling with addiction, and those facing life stressors and relationship issues. I believe that counselling should be a collaborative approach where we work together in resolving life’s challenges. We can work together to create a plan that will give you hope that your life can and will improve. My goal is to guide you to self-awareness and to help you gain greater clarity on your goals.

My educational experience includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from City University, Master’s Degree in Social Work from Eastern Washington University, and Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Troy University. Additionally, I served honorably in the military for four years before permanently moving to Canada. My areas of expertise include life coaching, working with individuals struggling with addiction, men issues, and those facing life stressors and relationship issues.
