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.

I bring decades of experience helping emergency services and health care professionals find solutions to the cumulative stress they experience every day in their jobs. Without a safe place to work through these normal reactions to abnormal events, careers can be cut short and the families of these professionals struggle as well. Together we can find solutions for work related stress and other issues such as: the impact on the families, grief and loss, addiction/recovery and enhance existing coping skills. I enjoy working with a wide range of age groups from young adult to adult.

Ever feel like saying F#CK My Life? Whether you are stressed out, burnt out or someone feeling increasingly overwhelmed, I am here to support you. I specialize in anger, jealousy, burnout, stress and addiction. I also work with people who have spiritual and psychedelic non-ordinary states of consciousness that want integration therapy and support. My counselling style is pragmatic and heartfelt. I have weathered my fair share of storms. “Why” is this happening to me is an important question to ask. The answer often lies in our own behaviour, habit energy and shadow. Working at this level leads to lasting change, beyond talk therapy.

Together you will discover the roots of challenges you are facing in yourself, family and relationships. This involves connecting current challenges with learning and experiences from childhood. Using CBT and mindfulness you can identify thoughts and beliefs and their connection to emotions that drive behavior. Being able to name thoughts and emotions creates a new relationship to them and provides new choices and perspectives. For those with ADHD, I will provide additional guidance on proven behavioural approaches that will help you develop new ways of working, learning and relating.

If you’ve landed here, you've likely recognized that it's time to get to know yourself more deeply in order to understand how to shift into a new direction, in a way that works well for you.

My view on counselling is based upon the level of trust and the quality of the connection that we are able to create together. In essence, the relationship that we develop together is key. I would wish to provide you with a safe, caring environment where you could come to feel completely heard and understood. I see my role as being more of a Guide, offering support while at the same time gently encouraging your growth by pointing out certain areas, thoughts, beliefs or behaviours that may be keeping you stuck, or that you may be unaware of.

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!

Most people I work with initially seek counselling as a result of some form of suffering. Sometimes this suffering is specific such as symptoms of anxiety, depression, addiction, stress or relationship issues. Other times the suffering is vague, a feeling of something being off, amiss, or worse. In either case, I meet people where they are at, either 'getting to it' (so to speak) and yet taking the time for whatever needs to unfold.

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.

In a world where people are experiencing increased anxiety and isolation it is important to find a place of safety and belonging. I believe people have the resources within themselves to thrive in this ever changing and complex society and it is my responsibility to guide you through the process of finding your own strengths. I have experience working with children and youth who struggle with anxiety issues stemming from family strife, school stress and self-esteem. I do family mediation and work with clients individually or as a couple. Without relationship human beings are lost, we crave connection.

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 Nanaimo?
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 Nanaimo 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.
