Peter is one of the newest additions to the Health Centre team and a member of the caribou clan of Stellako First Nation. He cites his passion for wanting to help people in need and that are suffering from addictions as his reason for becoming a counsellor. After working with Carrier Sekani Family services through ARP (addictions recovery program), Peter decided to return to school and completed a five-month course in advanced counselling training. He is proudly nineteen years sober, and hopes to use his first-hand experience to bring compassion, empathy, and understanding to his position.
