Tracey Dickie, MA
Tracey works as a Mental Health Specialist at WorkSafeBC, acting as an internal consultant for WorkSafeBC staff as they interact with those experiencing Mental Health injuries and illness. A significant part of her role is assessing and managing risk for workers who are contemplating or threatening suicide and helping to ensure appropriate supports are in place.
Prior to coming to WorkSafeBC in the Spring of 2019, Tracey worked for over 22 years as a Registered Clinical Counsellor in South Surrey helping individuals, couples and families move towards healing and greater wholeness in their emotional and relational lives. Tracey is passionate about ensuring every person feels heard and seen in the midst of their challenges and her authentic compassion for those facing Mental Health challenges provides a strong foundation for meaningful dialogue to take place with injured workers.
When not at work, Tracey can be found spending time with her three almost grown children, cycling, running, or trying to beat her husband up the Grouse Grind.
