Welcome! And Hello :) I'm Carly - an RCC (Registered Clinical Counsellor) that's had the honor of working as a therapist for over 5 years now. I run a private practice that offers evidence-based, compassion focused therapy for the treatment and support of ADHD, Anxiety, Emotional Regulation, Depression + Burnout, Self Esteem struggles, and Post-traumatic stress. My approach is warm, accepting, sometimes funny, and genuinely caring. I'm also practical - I know 'just talking' isn't always enough - so I work with a focus on clarifying and translating your insights from therapy into real tools and opportunities for meaningful change in your life outside session. My approach integrates a blend of somatic and cognitive practices from DBT, CBT, ACT, sensorimotor, EFT and Narrative therapy.
I am based in Vancouver and run Homecoming Integrative Counselling as an online practice, through secure video appointments, with a range of daytime and evening availability. My priority is helping people across BC access the right therapeutic fit and expertise needed for their support with ADHD, anxiety, perfectionism, depression and post-traumatic stress, in a flexible, convenient way, regardless of whether or not you live in downtown Vancouver.
You do not need to have a specific diagnosis to work with me, although I am experienced in counselling individuals diagnosed with ADHD, Anxiety and Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Major Depression or depressive episodes, substance misuse, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I also have specific experience and training for working with low self-esteem, identity and emotional regulation challenges related to emotional/psychological abuse and narcissistic injury.
I'm very open to working with people who are new to counselling. You don't have to know exactly 'what's wrong' to reach out to me- talking through what's been affecting you, or what you've been noticing, whether feeling off, hard on yourself or not your 'like yourself' are all valid places to start from. Whether you need a safe, understanding, and non-judgmental place to come talk about what's been bothering you, or you know what you are wanting to work on and just aren't sure what the right tools or next steps are for you - I'm here to help connect you to the clarity and assurance you need to be your most equipped and fulfilled self. This is what I see as coming home to yourself.
I work in a de-pathologizing way and believe that you are not your diagnosis, nor is effective therapy dependent on having a diagnosis. I work with client's current symptoms and difficulties, to create stability and reduce suffering. And I see your goals and life priorities as essential for determining your direction in therapy. I focus on your values and unmet needs, and help you contact your existing strengths, before we ask you to do anything different
I offer complimentary 20 min inquiry calls/consultations for new clients.
The best way to reach me is through email or the inquiry feature of my website. I typically respond within 1-2 working days.
