Do you self-sabotage? Yeah, you know- you set goals, read self help books, eat well, exercise, feel great, and then something happens and some invisible 'force' sets you back into "self-destruct' mode. That invisible force is your subconscious mind and it contains negative and dis-empowering beliefs you downloaded as a child or somewhere in your journey of life. They are holding you back from achieving your goals.

My approach to counselling is fundamentally about building a genuine relationship characterized by support, care and encouragement. A space where it is safe to speak the truth about what has happened in your life. The kind of relationship that welcomes your whole self to be present, including the parts you don’t like. A place where you are received with compassion and acceptance, no matter how much anguish, confusion, rage, shame or despair you might be feeling. I know from my own experience that this kind of relationship creates the conditions for deep inner healing to occur and holds the potential for profound personal growth.

I draw on over 30 years of professional experience in working with adolescents, adults and families. By providing a safe non judgmental environment I can support you to explore the thoughts and belief patterns that create your reactions. When you recognize patterns of interactions and triggers, together we explore and cultivate an understanding of how those patterns started. You determine, if these patterns continue to serve you. I can help bring what is unconscious, conscious so you can choose how you respond in any given situation. You get to create a life that is more in line with your goals, values and ideals.

We all live complex lives and are having to face an ever-changing environment. This can be immensely stressful. We all experience challenges in our lives but we do not always have the clarity or skills to effectively navigate our way through them. We then either get stuck or continue to go through life living on auto-pilot. To create a meaningful life, we need to reconnect with ourselves, the things we value and fine tune our skills to attain our goals. Working through challenges in our past or those in the present in a supportive, therapeutic environment can help us build a fuller and more meaningful life.

My guiding principle is that the therapeutic process is deeply personal and unique and, therefore, must be tailored to the particular needs of each client to achieve their optimal health and wellness. With warmth, compassion and empathy, I help my clients to (re)discover their needs and strengths, and to pursue their desired well-being, with attention to issues related to the individual’s culture, trauma, gender, and circumstances. I work with persons from across the lifespan on issues as wide-ranging as anxiety, depression, stress management, abuse,adjustment matters, relationship challenges, addictions, and major life-transitions.

We all have experiences that deserve to be explored with compassion and nuance. Perhaps you feel stuck in a state of overwhelm, pain, or powerlessness. Maybe parts of you have been silenced, shamed, or oppressed for too long. Perhaps your relationships aren't embodying the interpersonal dynamics you want or need for yourself. I harness trauma-informed, collaborative approaches that shine a light on your strengths and honour our human need for interconnection and belonging. With the power of curiosity and supported vulnerability, we can work together towards your vision of healing, transformation, and renewal.

Hola a todes. Welcome! I believe that patterns of behaviours speak of each person’s history individually as well as collectively, since we are immersed in a vast array of cultural spaces that bestow upon us knowledge, traditions, thoughts of freedom but also trauma and limitations. I offer a holistic approach to healing, working through experiences of suffering and dis-ease with a Lacanian Psychoanalysis and Jungian Deep Psychology foundation. My practice is deeply rooted and further enhanced by the spiritual teachings of Mahayana Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta. These principles are integrated into every aspect of my life and work.

My counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable.

By discussing your concerns with you, I can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems. It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Vancouver are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Vancouver then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Vancouver, or Child Psychologists in Vancouver.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Vancouver psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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 Vancouver 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.
