Welcome. My name is Aiden and I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). I hold a Master’s in Counselling Psychology (MCP) from Adler University, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology from University of Alberta, and post-graduate training in psychological assessment from Concordia University of Edmonton. I am a member in good standing with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and a full member of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA). I was born and raised in New Zealand, but I have called Canada (specifically Toronto, Edmonton, and now Vancouver) home for the past 15 years.
In my time as a therapist I have had the honour of helping people understand and work through a variety of difficulties, including anxiety/stress related issues, mood-related issues, and issues related to relationships, intimacy, and communication. I have found that although people may often seek help for similar symptoms (e.g. low mood, panic), the root cause of these symptoms varies for everyone, and can be related to anything from current relationship or work stress, to early childhood neglect.
In my clinical work, I draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches such as Adlerian Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I strongly believe in integrating various therapeutic perspectives as I appreciate that you are unique and “one size does not fit all.”
As I have overcome generalized and social anxiety myself, I can relate to the pain and hardship of living with anxiety and depression. I am proud to say that my experiences have helped me grow both personally and professionally, and I am transparent about the role therapy has played in transforming my own life. I can also relate to how nerve-wracking it can be to take the initial step of seeking help. As a result, I make it my priority to do everything I can to reduce your concerns around the counselling process itself. It really is my privilege to guide and support you through the healing process.
Please note that at the moment my availability to take on new clients is limited. While I am happy to meet for a consultation, it will only be for the purpose of connecting you with one or more of my colleagues who I believe may be a good fit. Thank you for your understanding.
