Are you feeling lonely despite being in the company of others? Pretending everything is ok when you don't feel that way is hard work and can leave you feeling isolated. If you're feeling like life has gotten so difficult that you aren't able to relate to others the way you'd like, I'm here help. You don't have to do this alone and you have what it takes to get through this.

I am trained in dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and trauma focused cognitive behavioural therapy (TF-CBT).
Hi, my name is Kaitlyn and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). Over the past 10 years, I have had the honour of working with teens, adults and seniors struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, self-harm, suicidal ideation, emotion regulation, attachment, relational difficulties and more. I believe emotional and physical safety to be critical components in fostering a trusting and therapeutic relationship throughout sessions. This ensures that the therapeutic journey is reparative rather than re-traumatizing.

I have specialized training Cognitive Behavioiural Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT).
With passion, I have worked extensively in community settings throughout the Lower Mainland with children, adolescents, and adults from a range of evidence based modalities. Some of my areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, emotional dysregulation, trauma, relationship conflicts and distress, parenting, and issues related to overcontrol. The foundation of my therapeutic work comes from exploring the mind and tapping into the wisdom of the body. Choosing to enter into counselling or psychotherapy can be a scary and hard decision to make. There is uncertainty about the process and/or the outcome.

I am a senior practitioner and faculty member of Mind-Body Attunement Therapy, a trauma focused , attachment based therapy that will help you develop improved emotional regulation.
Hello, I'm Niki, very nice to meet you. Chances are you are noticing that some things in your life just aren't working anymore. There are some life events that impact our emotional well-being. Sometimes they are easier to overcome than others. Those that are not easily managed can lead to prolonged mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, addiction, and others. In therapy, I can help you to work through the process of healing. I have a genuine and compassionate approach that I bring to each session. I hope to help you find emotional health.

At the heart of this therapeutic practice is the idea that problems lie between you and others as opposed to within you. How do you relate to your loved ones, strangers, and the world at large? Questions such as these will help you understand not only what you could change in your life, but also how to change it. The cultivation of truth occurs through building lasting trust: This is the core of working effectively towards solutions and change together. A heart of non-judgment, encouragement, empowerment, and tools are provided so that you can work through trauma from the past as well as practice new ways of living in the world.

I have been supporting families and individuals at a non-profitable organization in Vancouver for the past 5 years while doing private practice for over 7 years as a counselling art therapist. Combining my training in hypnotherapy and mindfulness based somatic therapy, people I support find ways to deepen connections with both their internal and external experiences in the healing process. My experience as an immigrant and growing up in different cultures help me to understand others' unique paths and cultural diversity. I speak fluent Mandarin and Cantonese. I am always fascinated by the stories and resources people share.

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.

We all need help once in a while. However, if you're a successful entrepreneur or executive, the world seems to get a lot smaller when it comes to finding people who really get your challenges and who can provide meaningful guidance. For over 10 years, I've been specializing in guiding high achievers to reverse a condition that I call “Subclinical Sabotage” so that they can reach bold financial goals, get in shape, claim epic love and make their mark on the world.

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.
