My passion lies in assisting individuals to live their lives to their fullest potential. I believe that creating a safe space for individuals to explore their lives and that building a strong therapeutic relationship are the first and foremost important factors in the counselling process. Thank you for taking time to explore my page. My name is Heather MacPherson and I hold a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Victoria. My offices are in Langley City and I also see clients via video internet (similar to Skype).
Whether you struggle with OCD, PTSD (trauma), anxiety, depression or other difficulties, the first step to healing is often reaching out to someone, breaking the isolation. You are making that first step. As a counsellor, I strive to create a warm and welcoming place where clients can come to explore, grow, and find increased healing from difficulties, therefore creating change and growth. As a highly relational person, my attuned attention and compassionate nature are central to my practice. I firmly believe that healing takes place, partly, in relationships. It is within the therapeutic relationship that I tailor specific theoretical approaches (CBT, DBT, Narrative, ACT, EMDR etc.) to meet each individual’s unique strengths, desires, processes, and needs.
I work with children, teens, and adults who face the effects of a variety of difficulties such as symptoms of OCD, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I have specialized training in supporting individuals who have been affected by trauma (EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy).
Feel free to look at my website and/or contact me for a free 15 minute phone conversation to determine if you would like to set up an appointment.
Please note that I have a little white hypoallergenic dog (Bichon Frise) who is training to be a therapy dog who comes to my office and sits in her bed during session.
I look forward to hearing from you.
