I draw upon several well known approaches in my work, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotionally-Focussed Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness Techniques.
If you’re here, then you’ve probably run into a very difficult time in life, and you’re looking for ways to get through it. I like to work with metaphors, and a helpful metaphor is the idea of life as a journey, with lots of good terrain, but also lots of tough terrain. The tough terrain can represent many different struggles: relationship difficulties, stress, depression, anxiety, family challenges, loss… you name it. And in this life-as-a-journey idea, a counsellor can be thought of as a local guide who is familiar with the tough terrain, and has experience helping people navigate the most difficult parts of their journey.

I primarily use ACT in sessions which focuses on decreasing emotional distress through coping skills and living by your values.
While recovery is challenging, one of my greatest passions as a counsellor is helping clients develop tools and gain insight so that they no longer lean on disordered eating behaviours. My approach is compassionate and collaborative. Everyone's journey is different, and so I tailor my work to each individual to help you reach your recovery goals. Having worked as a therapist at multiple eating disorder treatment programs (including treating ARFID), I apply this expertise into my work. I also incorporate body liberation and Health at Every Size in working with clients.

Although ACT is my primary approach, I also draw from Person-Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Hi there! My name is Kiana and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with a Master's Degree in Counselling. As a young girl, I always found myself drawn to helping others. I struggled to feel confident and accepted by others at school, so I promised myself that when I grew up, I would orient my career towards supporting and comforting others. I take an Acceptance & Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) approach to therapy, meaning that I see hardships in life as being inevitable. By helping you discover your core life values, you can live a life that is positive and meaningful, despite having to navigate painful experiences.

Depending on what you are coming to counselling for, I utilize a combination of radical acceptance , sensorimotor psychotherapy, internal family systems, or a sex therapy-based approach.
Life can feel incredibly painful when we are feeling disconnected, isolated, and ridden with distressing thoughts, memories and emotions. Together, we can make space for the parts of you needing to express that pain. By experiencing, and embracing the disenfranchised parts of you, we can move into a life rich with meaning and fulfillment.

In my clinical work I draw from a range of modalities, integrating CBT and ACT with mindfulness and somatic therapy.
Welcome! My name is Michael. If you're coping with anxiety, OCD, or trauma, I can support you in finding relief. I grew up in Vancouver, where I struggled with depression and low self-worth throughout my adolescence and early adulthood. Driven to seek solutions, I spent years studying Zen meditation in Japan and plant medicine in Peru. Through those experiences I learned that there is not one miracle cure, but an array of skills and practices we can harness to cultivate our health and wellbeing.

" We too believe that deep, sustaining change comes from self- acceptance and attunement with our values and needs.
It is human to struggle, we all have our ups and downs and being isolated in our emotional experience can just make it worse. Most emotions and behaviour makes sense in context. However, when left on our own to try to piece together our challenges, we can find ourselves plagued with self doubt and often feel lost. Therapy can help you see your situation objectively, accept even the imperfect parts of yourself, and work to use these parts as a roadmap into better health and well-being. We are not always able to control what life throws our way, but with help, we can transform these experiences into personal growth and wisdom.

All grief is not the same. You might think that you cannot survive your traumatic loss and life will never seem right again. You might think that the pain you are in now will never end. You wonder how other people get through the day. My clients seek to make sense of what has happened in their lives, to be understood and have a place of safety to explore new ways of living. Having helped clients in many areas of counselling and psychotherapy and with most age groups over the past 20 years, my experience is broad and deep. This informs my current work with clients, who like you, are looking for hope that life can get better.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in North Vancouver or for a North Vancouver ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
