Anne-Marie Armour, MSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker & Psilocybin-Assisted Therapist
My therapy practice is founded on my belief that we each have an innate capacity to heal and that the answers we seek are already with us, though not always accessible in our current states of consciousness and nervous system. With a gentle curiosity and an abiding compassionate presence, I help my clients reconnect with lost parts of themselves so they can live from a more whole and authentic place. I am a heart-centered therapist and human who loves meeting people with fresh eyes, allowing the possibility of a new beginning in every interaction. If you are looking for an ally and witness to walk alongside you on your journey of self-discovery, please contact me for a free consultation to see if I might be the right fit for you!
My name is Anne-Marie and I am a registered social worker practicing on the unceded traditional and ancestral territories of the Lekwungen people known as Victoria, BC. With immense gratitude and respect, I acknowledge that the entire field of psychedelic-assisted therapy and research would not exist without the wisdom and efforts of Indigenous Knowledge Keepers over the centuries. I have been working in the field of mental health for the past 12 years and hold degrees in Psychology (BA) and Social Work (BSW & Clinical MSW). I have 7 years of front line harm reduction experience in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and am a current Board Member with the Overdose Prevention Society (OPS). I am former Executive Assistant & Volunteer Coordinator with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) Canada and Registered Social Worker with TheraPsil where I co-created a Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy for Substance Use Disorders Pilot Program and helped patients at end-of-life apply for section 56 exemptions to access legal psilocybin-assisted therapy. I am a passionate advocate for increasing access to psychedelic-assisted therapies and reforming drug policy to include the voices and perspectives of people with lived and living experience.
