My primary work is in sexual, and complex mental health concerns. I have extensive training in ISTDP, Direct Neurofeedback (DNF), and behavioral approaches such as CBT, and DBT. This makes me highly effective working with disorders such as anxiety, depression, BPD, addictions, pain and medically complex conditions. My diverse range of skills, such including harassment investigation, and conflict resolution mediation, with my 25 years in the military proves me to be a very direct clinician. I work with individuals, couples and families/supports with varied needs. Most importantly, I strive to provide a safe space for all clients.

I assist people with health and medical problems to improve their functioning, overcome barriers or limitations, and participate in vocational activities to promote well-being. If you experience difficulty with aspects of your daily living, then you've probably thought about or tried to make changes, but the situation can seem stuck. You may feel frustrated, angry, sad, worried, fearful, anxious, or depressed. You may need to connect, communicate, or be understood and accepted. Your goals might be to gain self-knowledge, resources, and skills to cope; or to find a deeper sense of purpose and meaning for your quality of life.

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.

Has traditional therapy not worked for you? Do certain memories still have a strong negative emotional pull when they come up, or when discussed in therapy? For some, there needs to be more than simply talking about the issues that distress us. Sometimes we need to address the underlying cause — the ‘root’ of the problem — not just the current symptoms that currently cause us distress: whether it be interpersonally, emotionally or within the cognitive space.

You may be in a place where you feel there is no hope, no solution, nothing to draw on for help. Together we will rediscover and leverage your internal resources to find the answers you’ve been seeking to questions like these: What is that feeling in the pit of my stomach? What is it telling me? What is that critical voice in my head that holds me back? Why do I feel so stuck, when all I want to do is move forward? My work draws upon an empathic and trusting therapeutic relationship to explore your thoughts, behaviours, and emotions.

Those seeking counselling bring a wide range of concerns, including: conflicted or broken relationships, family conflict, loss and bereavement, depression and anxiety, career and vocation, and trauma, both past and present. I often meet with people at important transitions in their lives, such as: preparing for marriage, navigating parenting challenges, facing the loss of a loved one, or a change in their work lives. For many, counselling is helpful in untangling the web of family relationships.

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.
