Elana Sures, M.Ed, RCC


I have over fifteen years of experience as a clinical counsellor, and in that time I have seen hundreds of clients, both for brief and long term therapy. I have been in private practice since 2006, and have worked as a clinical counsellor with Vancouver Coastal Health and other community agencies since 2000. In addition to receiving a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia, I have extensive training in the following modalities:

  • Emotionally focused therapy 
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Trauma-informed psychotherapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
  • Mindfulness-based psychotherapies

While I am able to effectively work with a wide range of issues, I have particular expertise treating the following:

  • Reproductive health & wellness issues (including infertility, prenatal, and postpartum adjustment)
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Couples therapy
  • Parenting
  • Addiction and substance abuse
  • Self-worth/feelings of inadequacy and failure
  • Perfectionism
  • Grief and loss 
  • Developmental trauma

I am a member in good standing of the British Columbia Association for Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), and the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy.
