Welcome to Chilliwack Counselling. My name is Shannon and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#3801) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and the Owner of Chilliwack Counselling. I was born and raised in Vancouver and I received both my Bachelors Degree in Psychology (Hons.) and my Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from Simon Fraser University. I specialize in the treatment of mood disorders, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, seasonal affective disorder, PTSD, stress-related problems, and grief and loss. I also specialize in Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy for couples who are contemplating separation/divorce, facing a betrayal (infidelity, jealousy, breach of trust), lacking communication and intimacy, or who are feeling overwhelmed by stress and family responsibilities.
Additionally, I am registered with the First Nations Health Authority to provide counselling services to people who are eligible for funding through the First Nations Health Benefit. I am also registered to provide counselling services through the Crime Victim Assistance Program and ICBC.

I have 9 years of clinical experience, post Masters, in substance misuse (as well as process addictions such as shopping, eating disorders, sexual activity), anxiety and depression, anger, grief and loss, psychiatric concerns, relationship, parenting and cross-cultural concerns, and have been in the field for a total of 14 years. I tend utilize a holistic approach, drawing from a number of therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioural, solution-focused, existential, narrative and emotion-focused. I believe that each client is unique and deserves tailor made synergy.
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, and I wish to do so by advocating self-development and self-actualization. I look forward to our paths crossing.
I have a Master of Counselling Psychology degree from Athabasca University and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#18553). I believe that each individual is both inherently valuable and capable of growth and increased hope, and I am privileged to offer witness and support in that process. I approach my work from the viewpoint that everyone can benefit from counselling at different points in their lives. Life, relationships, and changes can all be rich and rewarding, but they can also be intimidating, overwhelming, and even frightening. Stress, challenging family dynamics, fear of the unknown, and depression and anxiety can all reduce our ability to cope with day-to-day experiences.
When a counsellor provides support and perspective in a warm, welcoming, and accepting atmosphere, clients can begin to see their experiences in a new light, and to choose more adaptive responses that align with their values.
While I believe that holistic change involves self-reflection and understanding the reasons behind our behaviours and emotional responses, I also understand the reality of time and financial constraints, and work with clients where they are. For some, this will involve a focus on future behaviour and change tasks; for others, this will involve a focus on the present and mindfulness practices. For still others, this will involve coming to see past experiences in a new light. My approach is collaborative and tailored to the client’s unique needs.
My name is Kirsten and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#16708) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. You might feel stuck, alone or overwhelmed. I have also felt like this and found the support of a counsellor helped me to make positive changes in my life. My hope as a counsellor is to offer a professional relationship that is accepting and non-judgemental, but also objective and truthful.
I hold a Masters in Clinical Counselling from Simon Fraser University. I specialize in substance-use and behaviours, like gambling and sexual addiction, that are creating distress in your life. I also treat mood disorders, sleep problems, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, stress-related problems, and grief and loss, as well as working with couples and families. I use a variety of approaches to support clients, working together to determine the best fit for you. Some examples include: CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused, and Emotion Focused therapy. I appreciate that each client brings their own history of trauma and relationship histories.
Hi my name is Aman and I am a registered clinical counsellor (RCC #20111). My counselling experiences include extensive educational and practical background in the mental health and addictions field. I graduated from City U University with my Master of Counselling Degree. During my program I completed my capstone on the impact of intergenerational trauma within the South Asian community and how to use Narrative Therapy and Yoga strategies to work through the trauma.
Therapy can be beneficial for any individual throughout different times in their lives. Whether it is dealing with a crisis event or just overall mental wellbeing maintenance. I use a mix of a clinical approaches and some old genuine human connection. I truly believe my clients know what is best for them and I strongly believe in a strengths-based approach. I have experiences working with individuals from all walks of life and would love to walk alongside you in your journey of self-exploration, growth, and healing.

I am a Registered Social Worker with a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Social Work. I started my career by providing support to children, youth, and parents navigating complex challenges including family conflict and parenting issues by supporting the
development of life, communication, and parenting skills. I am passionate about working with individuals with concerns related to: relationships, parenting and attachment, life transitions, grief, trauma, and anxiety. As your counsellor, I will work alongside you to support you in
unearthing your strengths, recognizing unhelpful patterns, and developing your skills to guide your path to connection and healing. I utilize an eclectic approach centered on mindfulness and empowerment, drawing from solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, emotion-focused,
and narrative modalities. I view mental health as an important component in our overall
wellbeing and counselling as a tool that can provide support in moments of crisis but also throughout our everyday lives. By integrating mindfulness with psycho-education, I will support you in navigating life’s ebb and flow.

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. **Not taking new clients at this time**
