I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) and a Master of Counselling Psychology (MCP). I am also the founder of Luminaire Therapy which offers mental health counselling services in downtown Vancouver, as well as, through telehealth.
I specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which can help to process trauma, anxiety, depression, panic disorders, low self-esteem, PTSD and variety of mental health issues. If you feel overwhelmed, helpless or stuck dealing with your symptoms; EMDR can provide an effective and transformative psychotherapeutic outcome.
My therapeutic approach is collaborative and client-centered. I guide clients to process the past, to connect with the present and to re-imagine the future. This is done through safe, non-judgemental therapeutic dynamic. I want you to feel heard and to be understood; only then will you be able to make sense of the inner dialogue that so often is confusing and unattended.
In addition to English, I speak Armenian and Russian. I provide culturally sensitive counselling perspective which allows for an in-depth understanding of identity. Meaning making and strength-based approach is at the heart of counselling process provided by me.
