I have also completed Level 1 Gottman training for the support of couples .
As a former international teacher in Egypt, China and Korea, I bring cultural humility and a deep appreciation for cultural diversity into my counselling practice. Additionally, my learning from Indigenous peoples has contributed to my understanding of a holistic model of health; the interconnectedness, and necessary balance, between physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of one’s self.

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.

Have you been going to therapy for a while? Are you struggling with low mood, anxiety, pain, sexual disorders, or other symptoms, that you, or the medical system can't explain? Do you have complicated family dynamics, or require support in your relationship? I may be able to help. Having an intimate understanding of these issues, I offer a unique perspective on various concerns. Working as an emergency first responder and having been deployed to theatres of conflict has helped me to understand the complexity of trauma. I work with individuals, couples and families to help support the journey to inner strength.

I'm a Jungian psychoanalyst & couples therapist.
Thanks for looking to me as your prospective psychotherapist. I wish it were otherwise, but suffering is intrinsic to life. However, adversity can deepen our resolve to live more consciously. What unexamined core beliefs have you living below your potential? Together, we'll make sense of 'protective' defenses that are sabotaging your deepest aspirations. We'll develop strategies and insights against overwhelm and discouragement. Instead of relying upon outer authority, we will access your innate wisdom. I'll support you in taking decisive action to live your singular life with greater courage, purpose and meaning.

I believe we all have innate resilience and capacity for wellness – sometimes, when we encounter trauma, loss, or stress, we lose touch with those strengths. We may struggle with worry, hopelessness, self-criticism, or feel "stuck." Our relationships may suffer. At these times, we all need and deserve support. I work with each client to build self-compassion, confidence and regulation, gain insight, and grow skills for wellbeing. To me, safe, empathic relationships are the foundation of health and growth. I strive to create a safe space for clients, and attune to the heart of an issue, so that deep, lasting change can occur.

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.

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.
