Vancouver Anxiety Counselling & Psychotherapy
In my Vancouver counselling practice, I provide a supportive environment for you to work through - and move beyond - the issues that are keeping you up at night, and preoccupied throughout the day.
Depending on what is bringing you to therapy, our work together might involve:
- freeing you from persistent self-doubt
- processing painful emotions, such as guilt, anger, sadness and shame
- working on relationship difficulties, including ruptures in trust, communication breakdowns, and defensiveness
- reducing anxiety, chronic stress, and tension
- coping with break-ups, grief and loss, and life's unexpected curve balls
My clients typically are high functioning and competent on the outside, and yet inside are struggling - often with anxiety, self-doubt, or loneliness. On any given day, I might sit with a new parent, a workaholic, a couple at their wits' end, or someone reeling with a difficult transition. Despite this diversity in my clientele, I am struck by the common themes in our angst. We all want to build and sustain meaningful relationships, balanced emotions, and be congruent with our values - but this can be deceptively difficult. This is where I can help.
My counselling style: engaged, thorough, & productive.
I don't want you to feel better after seeing me, only to fall back into the same patterns after the therapy glow wears off. Together, we can get to the roots of your patterns so that you can suffer significantly less in the long term.
Likely, you've tried in many ways to change - perhaps you've read self-help books, taken up meditation, and thrown yourself into exercise. These are all constructive strategies, but may not address your deeper issues - and you may find yourself, once again, getting stuck. In my work with clients, we identify and explore your untapped emotions and needs. We also explore the defensive stances that can disconnect you from others. In short, my overriding goal in therapy is to help you to stop getting in your own way. This paves the way to more genuine connection with others and more internal harmony.
I currently see adult clients (age 19+) individually or as couples. I offer both in-office counselling as well as counselling via video conference on a secure telehealth platform. Not sure if online therapy is a fit for you? Contact me to book a free 30-minute video session.
If you are looking for a therapist to work with, take some time to explore my website, read my blog and learn more about me and how I work with people. If my approach seems to fit for you, please reach out to me to see if I might be able to help.
NOTE: Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, I am offering appointments primarily online via a secure telehealth video conferencing platform. Limited in-person sessions are available if preferred.
