I entered this field as a way to heal my own wounds while trying to work through the sudden and tragic loss of a family member. I am often reminded of the quote by A.E. Housman - 'I, a stranger and afraid, in a world I never made', and know what it's like to lose hope in a rapidly changing world, with many things supposedly outside of our control. My intention is to use my real-life experience as a way to offer hope and possibility to those who’ve had to deal with similar pain, grief, and suffering in their lives. At the moment, I am generally offering short to mid-term therapy (between 5-10 sessions).

Hi I’m Justin, a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Masters in Counselling Psychology from Adler University. For the better part of my life, I have been learning and training how to help people of all genders and sexual expressions tackle some of the confusing and difficult parts of life. I know what it's like to feel stuck, whether in your personal identity, sex life, relationships, career, or just life in general. I also know a lot of these topics can be tough to talk about, and that's why I'm here; to provide an environment of trust, compassion, and safety for us to explore some of these areas together without judgement.

We have many stories about ourselves and our lives. Some stories we hold or hear about ourselves leave us feeling well, hopeful, and engaged. When problems or concerns appear in our lives, they can take over our stories of ourselves and leave us feeling troubled about who we are or what we are experiencing. This can be a difficult place to be and it can seem like there is something wrong with us, or that our problems are taking most or all of our energy. It can be helpful to collaboratively explore what is influencing our problems including social norms and assumptions that tell us who and what we should be. Possibilities open up.

Currently taking clients / Clients come to me to me with a desire to reclaim parts of themselves that are buried under trauma, anxiety, self-judgement, and perfectionism. They feel as though the fundamental spark at the core of their being is lost, tarnished, and far out of reach. As such, they rightfully long for the fullness of their being and it is a privilege to help them rediscover it.

Whether it be conflict, lack of close connections, or traumatic memories of abuse, disruptions in our relationships can lead to depression, anxiety, and a range of addictions, unhealthy eating behaviours, and chronic pain. Effective therapy offers a unique relationship with a non-judgmental, highly-skilled professional who can help you safely explore the reasons for your distress. I believe that everyone has the right and the potential to be happy and act in their own best interest. I am dedicated to helping you uncover obstacles to your own well-being and support you on your journey to better health and improved relationships.

We are not expected to heal from our physical wounds without professional care, psychological wounds are no different. Psychotherapy is a culture-based therapy effort that requires deep understanding between therapist and clients. As a result, commonality in language, components of social perception, political, and historical backgrounds enhance the outcome of psychotherapy.

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 Vancouver?
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 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.
