I’m Ryan Hendricks - a Registered Clinical Social Worker based in the West Kelowna area.

I am devoted to living life fully. The natural world is an integral part of my everyday life. I enjoy walking alongside Aura and Kodi (my dogs) on nearby nature trails. While on my walks, I take pictures of plants, trees and mountains. The nature pictures on this website are from my daily mindfulness practice.

I am committed to helping you live life fully and free from anxiety and depression.
