Joelle is a clinical counsellor and author. She works in private practice online in British Columbia, specializing in communication, trauma, and anxiety. In November 2021 she published The Conversation Guide.
On February 13th (in honour of Valentine's Day and Family Day), Joelle joined us for an interactive presentation about boundaries - what they are, why we need them, how to have conversations about them, and why we avoid these conversations! We also discussed difficult conversations in general, how to structure them, and why it's important to have them.
Mental Health Wilderness First Aid's founder & director Daye Cooper Hagel, and her husband Collin Hagel, were delighted to welcome their son Darcy James Hagel in to the family (and the family business) on December 23, 2021.
Like many MHWFA students, Darcy is already learning to express feelings of all kinds (and at all hours), and loves spending time in nature. His other interests include milk, cuddles, and donning MHWFA gear on Hagel family outings.
