Kelly-Anne Breen, MA, RCC

Adjunct Faculty

As an Adjunct Faculty in both the Master of Counselling and the MEd in School Counselling, I teach a variety of courses in the full-time, part-time and mixed-mode programs.  I have been teaching at CityU since 2018.  I currently have my own private practice working with individuals, families, couples and supporting parents who are transitioning through separation and divorce.  I am also a Collaborative professional with Collaborative Divorce Vancouver in the roles of Divorce/Co-Parenting Coach and Child Specialist, and am a member of IACP (International Academy of Collaborative Professionals).  I work within the Family Justice system as a Parenting Coordinator, providing support and arbitration for families.  I am also a member of BC Hear the Child, providing reports for the purposes of bringing children’s voices into the Family court system.  I have a background in working with at-risk children and youth, family violence and working within the Youth Criminal Justice System.  I am passionate about student learning, and supporting each individual student to succeed in their academic and practical application of skills within both programs.

Teaching

I believe that a classroom should be a safe, caring community where all individuals are free to speak their minds, and learn from one another.  I see myself as a facilitator of the learning experience, and believe in providing opportunities for both practical application of learnings and academic reflection.  I believe we all have a role and responsibility in the process of learning, and I strive to support each student in understanding and achieving their goals.  I believe each individual learns in different ways, and I strive to ensure I provide a variety of learning modalities in my delivery of materials.
