My name is Joy Schellenberg and I’m a registered clinical counsellor with offices in Vancouver and Burnaby.
Are you Tired of the Pain and Turmoil in Your life?
It’s likely you’ve been struggling for a long time. You’re overwhelmed and you don’t know where to turn. It seems the same negative things keep happening to you over and over again. You seem to manage ok for a while, but your methods of coping just aren’t working anymore.
- Your emotions seem to be taking over.
- You’re plagued by feelings of not being “good enough”.
- Intimate relationships may be problematic.
- You’re consoling yourself by abusing substances or food
You may or may not know that the above are frequently symptoms of unhealed childhood abuse or trauma. Unhealed abuse and trauma can take complete control over your life BUT it sure doesn’t have to. Imagine what it would be like to:
- have more meaningful relationships
- respect and value yourself
- feel calmer and more at peace
- feel hopeful about the future
I have provided counselling for people who have histories of childhood abuse for more than 15 years. In addition to my Masters degree in psychology, I am certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a proven technique for helping people resolve pain and trauma. I am highly intuitive, and deeply caring. I have a strong background in social and environmental justice, so helping others is embedded in my value system. “Caring” is part of my lifestyle.
