I have had the honour throughout the past 20 years of my career to witness the power of individuals and families to make positive changes in their lives. My past experience includes work within counselling agencies, health centres, and with the government, supporting children, youth, and adults. My primary areas of therapy include anxiety, depression, stress, self esteem and interpersonal issues. I have specific training in cognitive-behavioural therapy and trauma focused CBT. I believe the relationship between myself and those I work with is integral, where your preferences inform our time together.

Feel relief from anxiety, depression or stress. You feel alone in a crowded room. You wear a fake mask of happiness. You feel uncomfortable tension in your body. Thoughts of worry and fear occupy your mind. You feel hopeless. Overwhelm. You are tired of the struggle. You feel alone with these problems. You want someone to talk to, who is supportive and understanding, that can open up new ways to view your issues. The heart of the matter is: You don't have to suffer with the symptoms of anxiety, depression or stress alone.

You’re concerned about how the pandemic has impacted your child. Your child worries more and has stopped being as carefree. You miss how things used to be. Maybe this stress has influenced your family connection. Are you spending more time together but feel more apart than ever? You feel like you’re not handling typical family challenges the same way as you used to. You are taking things more personally. Your fuse is shorter, the kids are quick to yell or cry. Feeling overwhelmed is normal but this doesn’t feel like your normal. You know what you don’t want for your family but feel unsure how to start to make things better!

Are you struggling in your relationship? Do you get frustrated at your partner, your mother, your co-workers or your boss? Have you thought that if you moved jobs, or countries, or changed your relationship that life would change; only to realize that you are having the same experience all over again? Sometimes we wish that people would just do what we want them to or be a certain way so that we can feel better. Often we think our relationships need to change when change must really begin within ourselves. If you are ready to look at who you are in your relationships, I'm here to help you discover who that is and why!

Are you feeling overcome with stress, anxiety and depressive feelings? Do you find yourself suffering from negative self-talk that contributes to a lack of self-esteem and confidence? Are you lonely, even with people all around you? Do you long to connect with meaningful relationships? Do you find yourself looking for escapes with addictive processes? If this sounds like you, I would love to help you connect to your authentic self by overcoming the negative lens that has been built throughout your life by what others have said, feelings of disapproval, traumatic experiences, societal and cultural conditioning.

I have had the honour to work with children, youth and adults in various capacities for 15 years.   During this time I have gained experience working in mental health, addictions, employment and trauma.   I have learnt that each client has the capacity to find the answers within themselves, and it is my role to walk beside them as this process unfolds.  I know what it is like to struggle to try do the right thing for yourself, your child or your family, and to not be sure whether you are over or under reacting.  Some things just don't go away- and that's when it might be time to reach out for help.

Hello, my name is Dean Laviolette and this is a counselling practice in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. As a proud Metis, life is both precious and beautiful, just like you. Seeking counselling is an opportunity to unearth and rediscover who you really are. My approach is to build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect in a safe environment. Being empathetic and genuine is my commitment to quality of care to clients without being judgmental. The use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches seem to help clients self-explore, become self-aware, and learn self-care.

What ever you may be going through, you deserve to been heard and seen, to find a place to reflect and gain perspective. Art therapy is a way of being curious, empathetic, aware of ourselves and the world we live in. Art therapy is an invitation. It can be both a place of validation and a place to challenge the ways we make sense of the world. Engaging in art in such a way is an invitation to grow and learn to be with what is.
