We would love for you to get to know us 

Welcome to our community

We are team of experienced Registered Clinical Counsellors and recognized members of the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). As an inclusive practice, we welcome people from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and orientations. 

 

Counselling provides you with the opportunity to focus on your mental health and improve your wellbeing. Whether you have specific goals in mind or you are not sure where to begin, we are available and dedicated to meet your needs. Benefits of counselling include greater self-acceptance, better expression and management of emotions, improved interpersonal skills, and overcoming self-defeating habits/impulsive behavior.

How can we help?

At Life Wise, we draw upon a bio-psycho-social approach as we strongly believe in evidence-based practices that integrate the mind-body connection. As such, we have chosen to complete training in therapeutic approaches that are grounded in science including

 

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Polyvagal Theory

  • Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy

  • The Gottman Method for couples

  • Mindfulness

  • Attachment Theory

  • Narrative Therapy

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Providing that each of our clients bring a unique history, cultural background, and story to the therapy room, we tailor our interventions to your personal needs and desires for counselling. Together, we will discuss what real transformation means to you and how we can attain your goals on a short-term, practical basis.

 

Using one or more of these approaches, you will discover how to make more conscious choices, heal from your lived experiences, transform your relationships, access your higher Self and gain the confidence to move forward with your life.

We feel truly privileged to not only witness but walk alongside the journey of so many individuals towards resiliency. We would be honoured to journey alongside you as you overcome anxiety & depression, trauma & PTSD, substance use, familial concerns, and/or relational challenges.

 

To ensure that we align with your values and vision for change, we invite you to contact us for a free consultation
