Our Counsellors


Scott Murie

  Scott Murie's focus with us has been on providing counselling services to men that have sexually offended. He has also been an active facilitator for Towards Healthy Relationships. He currently works both on an individual basis and co-facilitates support groups for clients who have sexually offended or have been charged with domestic violence.  Scott completed his Master’s degree at Wilfrid Laurier University and will be pursuing doctoral studies over the next few years. Scott plans to focus his research on the effectiveness of programs and therapeutic interventions geared to improve the likelihood of offenders staying offence free. Scott believes that a strong therapeutic alliance can increase the chances for clients to work towards healthier and safer decision making which, in turn, allows clients to live productive and meaningful lives within our communities.  Scott’s hope is that through intervention we realize less victims and less offenders, our counselling is about prevention through intervention.
