Human suffering at any age takes many forms. Conflicts and breakdowns in relationships of all kinds are not uncommon. Life can be traumatic or at the very least, unsettling. Self esteem sometimes needs reshaping or recharging. Alienation, frustration, chronic anxiety and worry take their toll, often experienced as fatigue and lowered immunity to illness and burnout. Fear, grief, indecision, shame and guilt can be paralyzing. Has life lost its meaning and direction? I am here to help you find your way again.

Counselling can be helpful If you're struggling, overwhelmed, stuck or interested in personal growth and increased self-awareness. I provide a therapeutic space and relationship that is built on transparency, kindness and genuine positive regard for the trials and tribulations of being a human being. Speaking from experience, reaching out to a counsellor can be incredibly difficult. In order to assist you with the process of finding a counsellor that is the best fit for your needs I offer a free phone consultation so that we can discuss your needs, how I work and the areas you would like to focus in our work together.

My ideal client has often dug themselves into a hole into which they can not get out of on their own. The issues will be related to a difficult relationship of some description, partner, family, community, finance, environment, financial, and certainly themselves. It is likely that their goals are uncertain and that they feel lost. Very often, my ideal client does not know what they want, but can with certainty say what they don't want.

Ever feel like saying F#CK My Life? Whether you are stressed out, burnt out or someone feeling increasingly overwhelmed, I am here to support you. I specialize in anger, jealousy, burnout, stress and addiction. I also work with people who have spiritual and psychedelic non-ordinary states of consciousness that want integration therapy and support. My counselling style is pragmatic and heartfelt. I have weathered my fair share of storms. “Why” is this happening to me is an important question to ask. The answer often lies in our own behaviour, habit energy and shadow. Working at this level leads to lasting change, beyond talk therapy.

I have been working as a counsellor for 24 years and my work focuses on addiction and trauma issues. They often go hand in hand but not always as each person is unique. The focus of my counselling work is very respectful as I acknowledge that you know yourself best. Most people seek out counselling because they are stuck in old patterns that they have outgrown yet need help to move forward in a new, more helpful way. I appreciate the courage it takes to reach out and I will work hard to help you make the changes you need.

Hello, my name is Dean Laviolette and this is a counselling practice in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. As a proud Metis, life is both precious and beautiful, just like you. Seeking counselling is an opportunity to unearth and rediscover who you really are. My approach is to build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect in a safe environment. Being empathetic and genuine is my commitment to quality of care to clients without being judgmental. The use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches seem to help clients self-explore, become self-aware, and learn self-care.

Most people I work with initially seek counselling as a result of some form of suffering. Sometimes this suffering is specific such as symptoms of anxiety, depression, addiction, stress or relationship issues. Other times the suffering is vague, a feeling of something being off, amiss, or worse. In either case, I meet people where they are at, either 'getting to it' (so to speak) and yet taking the time for whatever needs to unfold.

You may be bumping into challenges, hurdles, and fears, and noticing unhealthy repetitive patterns which are in the way of the life you truly want. I can support you to gently explore all those parts of you with curiosity and non judgement. My work is not informed by a diagnostic lens with labels; rather, it references the client as a "whole" being on their own unique human journey. I look forward to accompanying you on your healing journey, to tap into your implicit body-mind knowing and what is present in your body to deepen your awareness and consciousness.

I have had the honour to work with children, youth and adults in various capacities for 15 years.   During this time I have gained experience working in mental health, addictions, employment and trauma.   I have learnt that each client has the capacity to find the answers within themselves, and it is my role to walk beside them as this process unfolds.  I know what it is like to struggle to try do the right thing for yourself, your child or your family, and to not be sure whether you are over or under reacting.  Some things just don't go away- and that's when it might be time to reach out for help.

Sometimes our greatest discomfort comes when we aren’t who we once were and we’re not yet who we are becoming. We need help to step into this new reality. It is possible to go through life’s challenges with support, guidance and inspiration. Trauma can fracture us from our authentic self. Therapy can help to put the pieces together: mind, body, heart and soul. It is possible to discover new internal resources that bring an increased feeling of self-mastery, self-awareness and self-confidence. It is possible that successfully going through life’s rites of passage can lead to a clear vision for a future filled with purpose.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in V9R 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 V9R 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 V9R, or Child Psychologists in V9R.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like V9R 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 V9R 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.
