Welcome to Counselling Home, located in East Van on the Drive. Here you will find a safe space in which to heal and grow as an individual and in your relationships. Here you will be listened to and understood. You will find guidance and support as you create a more fulfilling life, within yourself and also with your loved ones.
If you are facing a life transition or a 'rough patch', if the current situation is challenging and feels painful, I will assist you in finding a map for the path you are walking, so that you may navigate through successfully.
If you and your spouse or partner are ready to work together to heal what has been hurt and to restore safety and vitality to your relationship, I will help by facilitating that process. Monogamous and non-monogamous (open, poly) relationships are welcome.
If you are a parent, I will help you access the guide you wish your kids had come with, so that conflict will decrease and cooperation and joy will increase in your home. I also facilitate parenting classes and workshops - please see my website for more information about parenting talks and events in Vancouver.
My counselling practice offers a caring, open, inclusive, and confidential space for people of diverse cultural backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations and identities, religions, lifestyles, relationship preferences, and life and family situations. As the counselling process unfolds, you will:
- find focused solutions to life's challenges
- work through life issues: career, relationships, parenting, sexuality, self-esteem
- resolve distress: heal from depression, anxiety, destructive behaviour, stress, anger, family conflict
- transition from surviving to thriving
- make and sustain positive transformation - within you and with others
Your innate strength, as well as your intention to transform the difficulty you are experiencing, will be our guides in your counselling process. I am committed to supporting your goals and your growth, healing, and optimization as you experience them.
It's not easy to reach out and take the first steps in searching for a counsellor who will be a good fit for you. So I'd like to thank you for reading my listing to the very end and considering working with me. One more piece of information I consider important for you to know before you decide whether you would like to contact me is that I work with the archetype of the "wounded healer". This means that I, too, have experienced deep, dark, and stuck places in my life. From that perspective, I know how important it is to have a caring, encouraging, non-judgmental, and supportive therapist during tough times and transitions.
I look forward to welcoming you to my practice. I work with individuals, couples, relationships of all kinds, and families. A 10-minute complimentary consultation is available to you when booking your first 1-hour session. Well wishes!
