I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia. I see clients in Downtown Nanaimo.
With over fifteen years of experience and a commitment to ongoing education/training I can help you. Whether you need a safe, non-judgemental person to talk to, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy to help with anger, anxiety or depression, a scientific non-twelve step approach to addictions/compulsive behaviour or hypnotherapy to help with all the above as well as letting go of the past or removal of PTSD/PTSD-like symptoms in a non-retraumatizing manner, I can provide you with the effective services that you need.
Each client is unique as are their problems. Consequently the approaches I use are tailored to the individual client. These approaches have been shown to be effective and are often based on a scientific understanding of how we, as human beings, work. The "Rewind" technique that I use to treat PTSD is gentle, rapid and does not re-traumatize the client.
If you would like to reduce or eliminate your suffering and build resilience for the future in a safe, caring and non-judgemental environment then please contact me and let's make it happen.
Client fee individuals:$100 per 50 minute session, free initial phone consultation
