I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with several years of clinical experience working with anxiety and depression, relationships and cross-cultural issues. I have worked extensively with individuals struggling with mental health issues and concurrent disorders. I tend utilize a holistic approach, drawing from a number of therapeutic approaches. I believe that each client is unique and deserves a unique approach.
I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to work with my client's in a collaborative search for peace and healing. I hope that in our time spent together we are able to mitigate, what we perceive as stress, if only for a moment. I wish to do so by advocating self-development and self-actualization. My passion is to connect with others while supporting them during difficult times, and in doing so, I wish to create a safe and comfortable environment. I look forward to our paths crossing.
For the past 10 years I have had the opportunity of working with children, youth, men, women, and families from diverse backgrounds and cultures. I hold a Bachelor and Masters Degree in Social Work. I am registered with the British Columbia College of Social Workers and I am also a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I am a Provider for the First Nations Health Authority and my experience encompasses a broad spectrum of interventions related to substance use, intimate partner violence, mental health, grief and loss, and trauma.
I believe we all thrive when our emotional needs are supported. You may be feeling stuck as a result of conflict, stress, anxiety, body image or gender identity. I will provide a safe, non-judgemental, inclusive and confidential space where your stories are heard, and your feelings are validated. Together we will develop strategies and goals that will allow you to overcome obstacles. In this process, I hope to help empower you, increase your self confidence and support you on your journey to wellness.
Hello, my name is Jan. I am a registered clinical counsellor with 18 years of experience. I have had the privilege of working with individuals, couples, and families from a variety of backgrounds and ages who have experienced issues relating to trauma, violence, concurrent disorders, and mental health problems including anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. It has been through these experiences and extensive training that I am able to provide services to treat the whole person using an integrated approach.
My approach to therapy is compassionate and person-centred. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental therapeutic space where we can work together to create a therapeutic plan that is in line with your values, beliefs, and goals. Individuals and families have the capacity to thrive, connect, and overcome challenges and I believe that therapy can help people in this journey.
I am a warm and nurturing Registered Clinical Counsellor who offers compassionate understanding and a caring approach to life’s difficulties. Whether you are experiencing loss and grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, or simply need some support throughout a difficult life event/situation/period, I am here to assist you. My work ethic involves creating a safe, non-judgmental and comfortable counselling environment, where you can take time to work on yourself and develop more authentic approaches to life. I believe that everyone is capable of overcoming adversity, and I will work with you to help you develop post-traumatic growth and better strategies for coping.
