Hello and Welcome. I am a cisgender first-generation immigrant who provides private counselling/therapy services in English and/or Tagalog for individuals and families who are located on the traditional, unceded, and ancestral lands of the Indigenous and First Nations Peoples across British Columbia. I am passionate about working alongside neurodivergent adults and older adults, families, immigrants, and visible minorities to support and strengthen individual, familial, and community well-being. I have experience working alongside clients from diverse backgrounds and with varying abilities. Many of the people I work alongside are first and second generation immigrants, folks who have suspected or confirmed Autistic and/or ADHD diagnoses, and/or are care partners of adults with intellectual disability or dementia.
Services Offered: Individual, caregiver, and family counselling; support with service navigation and completing forms. Please note all services offered are currently virtual (by phone or video).
Practice Approach: My approach is guided by a social and disability justice, person-centered, neurodiversity-affirming, and trauma-informed orientation and a lifelong commitment to building genuine and trusting relationships and providing safe and inclusive spaces where people are heard and can heal and grow despite and in spite of their life circumstances. I tailor my approach to meet client’s unique needs and goals by intentionally drawing from various models, including structural family therapy, dignity therapy, intersectionality, CBT, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and solution-focused therapy. I work collaboratively with clients to disrupt deficit-oriented perspectives on mental health and neurodivergence; and I support people in enhancing self-awareness and acceptance, well-being, confidence, mental health, and relationships.
I am set up as a service provider with the BC MCFD Autism Funding program and am able to bill the ministry directly for family counselling services that use this funding. Please reach out if you have any questions about this process.
About Rae Morris Counselling Group: All of our clinicians are registered social workers whose practice is grounded in values of social justice and equity, and incorporate a client-centered, trauma-informed, strengths-based, and neurodiversity- and identity-affirming approach to counselling and therapy. All of our counsellors have knowledge and experience working alongside neurodivergent clients, including those who are suspected, self-diagnosed, and/or formally diagnosed as Autistic and/or ADHD. We work collaboratively with clients to disrupt deficit-oriented perspectives on mental health and neurodivergence and to support people in enhancing self-awareness and acceptance, well-being, confidence, mental health, and relationships. Not all of our clients are neurodivergent and a formal diagnosis is not necessary to work alongside any of our clinicians.
