Hello, my name is Matthew Walker and thank you for your interest in Peakminds. I have worked in the field of social work for the last 12 years in many different disciplines. My passion for supporting others was cemented at a young age. I have worked with and counselled people with disabilities, students in a university setting, and those with addictions.
I have my Masters of Education in Counselling which I obtained from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. I obtained my undergraduate degree at Nipissing University in North Bay, Ontario with a Specialization in Social Welfare and Social Development and a minor in Religion and Cultures. My education, combined with my work, volunteer, and life experience have given me a knowledge base to support other people and understand their needs, trauma and their overall mental health.
