My name is Patricia M. Pike (Patti), CEO of Interventions Canada. I am a Certified Intervention Professional, Addiction Specialist, a certified educator (see interventionist training for details) and a devoted advocate for increasing the standard of quality care for all families and persons who are struggling with substance misuse, addiction and mental health disorders. My purpose to raise the standard of care in these industries has stemmed from two significant factors. Firstly, my 25 years of on-site experience in the fields of behavioral health, with a specialization in alcoholism, addiction and substance abuse.

As a counsellor, I intend to bring compassion, openness, curiosity, genuineness and cultural sensitivity to create a warm, safe and non-judgmental space for the clients to heal and change. I aim to utilize awareness and presence as instruments of empowerment for my clients. I invite the clients to make contact with their senses, emotions and thoughts in the present moment to facilitate awareness and acceptance, as I believe healing and change happen when individuals accept and embrace who they are.

I know firsthand that seeking out new supports can be daunting. Sometimes getting ‘curious’ about oneself, and making space for vulnerability, can feel like the last thing we want to engage in. It takes courage and resiliency to live within oppressive social conditions and to heal from individual and collective experiences of trauma. I believe that if our supports are rooted in safety and trust, we might find the space for healing, connecting to more joy, more pleasure, and crafting new worlds.

I am a therapist who empowers you through meaningful care. I have been there- the struggle, the trauma, the trouble navigating difficult and overwhelming feelings, and the pain of not feeling like yourself or having much hope. I know that seeking therapy isn’t an easy step and I commend you for starting your journey by looking to therapy. I am here to support you in finding what is best for you to reach your goals. If you work with me I promise you a safe space where you can process difficult feelings, and work through triggers that are no longer serving you.

Counselling is a collaborative process of exploring the difficulties (stress, emotions, experiences) that the client brings forward in session. Counsellors promote change by helping the client to focus on the feelings, thoughts, behaviours, and experiences that are maintaining barriers to attaining goals. Counsellors are there to “do with” not “do for.” The client is the one that leads the way, while the counsellor acts as a guide or support. My goal is to help you find your voice and your path to being your favorite version of you!

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.

If you are on this page, that means there is a part of you that is looking to healing and living life more fully. Depression, anxiety, trauma and other emotional struggles take away from the joys of everyday life. It might be hard to find the motivation to get out of bed in the mornings. Where you used to enjoy activities with loved ones, you might feel numb , disconnected or overwhelmed with anxiety. You may even find yourself stuck in unhealthy relationships or engaging in behaviors that just don’t feel right. Sometimes, emotions such as anger or anxiety can go from 0 to 100 in a matter of seconds and you may feel "stuck".

As LGBTQIA2S+ people, we are often navigating oppressive places and experiences. Often times, we are taught to squish, get rid of, silence, or hate certain parts of ourselves. I believe counselling can be a way to bravely choose to engage differently with ourselves and with each other - we can reclaim our right to feel curiosity towards and compassion for all of our parts. When we do this, we create magic, and we invite new possibilities for connection. I’m a Registered Social Worker, and I provide counselling from trauma-informed, collaborative, and anti-oppressive approaches.

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.

With so many stressors in the world, it is easy to feel alone and uncertain of who you are or want to be. Therapy provides a space for discovery and connection. Discovery of how certain ways of understanding our place in the world emerged, and of how small shifts can help connect us with our authentic self, desires and values. My job is to help create a safe space where it is possible for you to be yourself in the fullest sense – even if you don’t quite know who that is yet. So, come to therapy as you are. Anxious. Excited. Messy. Sad. Confused. Tired. Changing. There is nothing you can’t be and can’t feel in our sessions together.

At Allura, we know and understand that sexuality is one of the most fun but complicated parts of humanity, while also one of the hardest to find a safe and non-judgmental space to speak openly about. Do you feel overwhelmed when you think about your sexuality, sex life, or relationship? Do you wish for more connection and excitement with your partner? Do you sometimes feel stress or anxiety fill your life? We can help with that. Our clients are professionals, parents, sometimes monogamous and sometimes polyamorous, LGBTQ+ - but they all share one thing in common: they are struggling with their sexuality in some way.

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 practice from a humanistic, strengths-based, solution-focused model as well as a psychodynamic perspective. My approach is holistic, non-judgmental, anti-oppressive, authentic, nurturing, and eclectic.
