Karina O'Brien, PhD, RPsych, Psychologist in West Vancouver
I'm a Registered Psychologist who works with people facing stress/anxiety, panic, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and related concerns. I enjoy working with teens and adults. I do not use a "one size fits all" approach, but will tailor the approach to you after getting to know you during our first meetings. I typically use evidence-based and skills-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and family-based therapy (FBT) for teen eating disorders.
My goal is to work collaboratively with you, and provide a safe space for growth, within a warm, supportive, and non-judgemental environment. I have years of specialized training and experience, and have worked in both hospital and clinic settings.
It is important to choose a therapist with specialized training and experience, and with whom you feel comfortable. Make sure you ask questions when you are interviewing prospective treatment providers! I welcome telephone calls, and would be pleased to speak with you about my practice, and answer any questions you might have.
