She is a certified councilor, with her focus being in the area of addictions, including gambling. Karyl has received training in many different therapy techniques, including the Genesis program, grief and loss, and others.
Karyl brings tremendous experience to the home. Having founded and run three rehabilitation homes in previous years, she has gained ample experience in group home therapy. Karyl trains other counselors in the area of addictions and in her part time is developing a program to have counselors certified online.
In 2003 Karyl won the Women of Distinction Award for community leadership in the central Okanagan.
Having first hand experience in the devastation of addictions, and overcoming their grip, Karyl not only has experience, but burns with passion. She desires others to experience the freedom that she has, and live their life with passion and fullness.
"I would like to say thank you to all of you. Everyone one of you played an important role in my recovery. Especially Karol. Without you Karyl my life would be a mess. I came in a wrecked person.
The feeling of being loved and respected is something I haven’t received in a long time and forgot how it felt until now. You changed my whole outlook on life and it’s now worth living. I’m now very optimistic of the future and your words of encouragement, support and life experiences really do hit home and means the world to me. Thank You." B.M. Vancouver
You are worthy and excellent, and you will face recovery with Boldness and Courage. Your recovery is heroic and you have shown great bravery on your road to healing!
