I work with many kinds of clients. Kids, teens, and parents; couples and families; and people with a wide range of neuro-diversity as well as diversity in gender, sexuality and identity. Those with a creative imagination may be drawn to creative arts therapy. Some seek better understanding of themselves, and some seek better communication with others. Are you looking for acceptance and empathy along with encouragement to become your best self? Looking for strategies to explore your needs, strengths, resources and obstacles? I want to help you thrive in your world, with joy, confidence and self-acceptance.

I have been supporting children & youth, and their families for the past 17 years in public education. I facilitate workshops and also do group counselling. I have a strong background in special education, which means I often observe the behaviour(s) of children and youth, collaborate with them and their families, and implement/teach tools for alleviating a child's stress. I have experience as a clinician for Adult Mental Health & Addictions in both inpatient and outpatient care from the hospital. This has benefited early recognition and prevention.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and stuck, Erinn can help you begin the journey toward feeling greater capacity, peace, and aliveness again. Perhaps childhood experiences have left you with residual depression, anxiety, or recurring relationship patterns that you don’t know how to change. Or maybe you recently gave birth and you feel like you “should” be happy but you’re actually struggling to cope. Or perhaps you or your partner experienced a trauma and now you’re trying to navigate the impacts on your relationship. Or maybe you’re struggling with PTSD symptoms following an accident, assault, or exposure to occupational stress.

We cannot change the events or situations of our past, but we can absolutely be free from being chronically impacted, and compacted by our history. You are entitled to all of your feelings and they are an integral part of healing and living a healthy life. If you are ready to move what you are holding to a new place, I am here to support that process. You can find your voice, unpack your story, be seen and heard, I bring tools and support to make the changes you would like to make, so that you can embrace your life with love and enthusiasm. In my mind, everyone who survived their story and makes it to counselling is a superhero.

I agree with Carl Roger's position that all humans are oriented towards growth and self-awareness. Behaviours which once served to nurture and protect us, can become habitual and no longer useful. You are the expert in your life, and if you are seeking counselling, it is likely because what once worked is no longer serving you. In times of transition, whether by choice or demand, we often find ourselves needing new skills to cope with our anxiety, depression, panic or burnout. Our relationships are deeply impacted by our ability to communicate our needs, desires, and boundaries, and yet we are taught so few of these skills.

Dr. Cheryl Bucar Having experienced personal and work related loss, I have learned that recovery from the trauma of loss and change is a process. In many situations such as a death or divorce the individual is able to label the loss and associated feelings as grief. Often in an organizational context, individuals do not think that the work related change as loss which can trigger profound feelings of grief. Understanding organizational loss in this context, normalizing the feelings that go with this type of change allows the integration of this knowing into my group and individual counselling work.

Are you feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or unfulfilled in your life; perhaps paralyzed with how to move forward? Everyone struggles sometimes and we are not meant to do it alone. Life can throw us all kinds of intense challenges that may leave us feeling disoriented and disconnected; not even recognizing who we are anymore. I believe we all have the capacity to create change with the right support. That’s why I am committed to creating a non-judgemental space for you to better understand and express yourself in a way that allows you to emerge reconnected to your own inherent wisdom. I trust your reconnection to this wisdom implicitly.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Courtenay?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Courtenay specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
