Ever think to yourself "how did I get here?" You feel exhausted before the day has even begun. On the outside you look like you have it together but on the inside you're a mess. Stressed out, burnt out, and riddled with anxiety or right out depressed. Your body hurts in places you didn’t know you had or seems to have a mind of its own. No matter what you do or how you do it, it's never feels good enough. All you want is to catch a break and find some inner peace. You want to feel seen and like you have it together.

Vulnerability can make us feel very uncomfortable, but if we view it as a transition, into higher self-esteem/confidence & therefore more life resilience then it is much healthier to forge ahead to find a therapist who can support us. Finding the best fit in seeking a therapist is the most important step in relieving your stress. Many of us struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, depression, suicide ideation, sleep deprivation, separation, divorce, conflict resolution, trauma, relationship, and parenting issues, emotion regulation, communication and assertiveness, boundaries, personal development, caregiver burden and so much more

ARE YOU A TEEN, OR A PARENT OF A TEEN? Are you feeling challenged, misunderstood, or feeling pressure in teenagehood? Or are you are parent who is challenged by your teen? Depression, anger, and anxiety are common feelings that can be running the show for teens and parents during this developmental stage of teenagehood, and can feel overwhelming. Staying trapped in the same fights, frustrations, anxieties, and unhappiness is a harmful cycle that can have lasting effects.

Have you spent your entire life trying to get over your childhood? Do you deal with crippling anxiety, PTSD, crushing depression, severe sleep problems, or struggle with ADHD? My professional area of interest, and my expertise, is in helping people deal with the aftermath of trauma. I offer somatic- and trauma-informed counselling online, and neurofeedback in-office. Neurofeedback reduces or eliminates symptoms that block your ability to live life to the fullest. Severe trauma--residential school survivors and their families, war veterans, those with histories of severe childhood abuse--may need two to three 20-session blocks.

It's perfectly normal to want to avoid pain, including emotional pain. You may have become an expert at shutting out those painful emotions to make it through your life—maybe disconnecting completely from those feelings. That’s an adaptive response to emotional overwhelm, and it’s how many of us get through the daily challenges of work, school and social life. Yet that pain will find a way to make itself known one way or another. Counselling can help you to change the way you respond to whatever it is you’re carrying so that you can better identify and attend to your needs.

I launched Nested Heart Counselling in 2013 in response to a call from the local polyamorous community saying how challenging it was to find mental health support that didn’t require further education about unconventional identities. I'm not currently accepting new clients personally, however I have collected a group of counsellors with similar values, experience and training as myself across BC. Roxanna, Morgan, Erica all have availability right now for new individual clients. Katree is our practicum student who has reduced cost counselling sessions available in Victoria. You can explore their extensive bios on our website.

The assessment of adult attention deficit disorder is reliable and efficient when performed by a licensed clinician. I offer a reasonably priced service which involves a clinical interview and several psychological tests that can usually be completed in a single session. We will look at your history, and also try to rule out or include other common causes of attentional difficulty, such as anxiety. Based on the session I can provide a report that summarizes my findings. This is strictly confidential, but you may choose to share it with employers, educators or doctors.

If you are struggling to find meaning in life, wanting to find your passion and purpose, and take steps toward being your best self in many or all areas of your life, I am happy to help! Sometimes significantly challenging circumstances occur that lead us to question what we are doing and what do we actually want. While this can be painful and disorienting, it is a useful process to go through, and can be easier with a guide who understands. Grief, loss, anxiety and depression are at an all-time high, and many people either do not have access to their regular coping strategies, or those strategies no longer work.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Victoria 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 Victoria 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 Victoria, or Child Psychologists in Victoria.

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