Keely Honeywill (she/hers) holds a Masters of Social Work from the University of British Columbia as well as a Masters of Science in Gender, Development and Globalization from the London School of Economics and is receiving regular clinical supervision from Melissa Pickett at Peak Resilience. She began her social work career working with survivors of torture, refugees, women fleeing domestic violence and survival sex trade workers.
Keely has sixteen years combined education and experience supporting clients with various issues related to trauma, mental health, addiction, eating disorders, abortion and domestic violence. Keely has worked with individuals, couples and families. Keely loves to be challenged, loves to learn and wanted to gain even more knowledge to better help guide her clients which is what brought her back to completing her Masters of Social Work.
Keely is the recipient of the 2021 UBC School of Social Work Equity Award.
The goal of this award is to recognize student contributions to the struggle for equity and social justice and contributions to any of our equity themes: Indigenous; LGBTQI2S+; (dis)ability; immigrant; and/or BIPOC issues. Social justice and equity have always and will always be the driving force in Keely’s practice.
Keely believes in creating a non-judgmental, safe space for clients. She believes that clients are the experts of their own lives.
