I work primarily with clients aged 10 and up. I work from an integrative approach to ensure that the methods I use work best for you and your concerns. I encourage open communication so that I do not use a method or intervention that is not working for you. I specialize in chronic illness/pain, trauma/PTSD, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, couples/sex therapy, lgbtqia2s+, and career counselling, however, I am trained to work with other concerns as well. If you would like a free consultation or to set up an appointment contact me now or visit my website for more information. I am fully licensed to see clients in BC (RCC) and NB (LCT-C), as well as SK, MB, NL, and The Territories (CCC).
Hi, I am a registered clinical counsellor and psychological first aid provider whose counselling work integrates emotional, physiological and social avenues to achieve lasting positive change. I have supported those struggling with depression, addiction, anxiety, eating disorders, co-dependency, life transitions, emotional regulation, stress management, attachment disorders, self-harm, OCD and other mental health issues. Using a cognitive-behavioural approach (CBT), I work with clients to break and replace self-defeating thoughts and behaviours. Having been raised in a bicultural home, I also recognize the important, yet often difficult, demands placed by family and culture and jointly seeks ways to balance such needs.
I have worked successfully with a lot of men in my practice. I understand how hard it can be for men to seek help. At the same time I know from experience that there’s tremendous benefit involved for those men who take that first step. My counselling approach is about compassion and non-judgement. Whatever is happening for you will be accepted and faced together. From a stance of respect and an underlying core belief that you have the wisdom within you to overcome your challenges, I will support you in recognizing and engaging powerful resources both within you and around you. Counselling theories and methodologies I use include Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I believe that commencing therapy is a courageous step, and I honour your courage to engage in the process by making the experience as welcoming and simple as possible. My aim is to help you achieve your goal(s) as efficiently as possible by providing you with the most effective therapy available. I am focused on meeting you where you are, employing empathy, presence and unconditional positive regard. I believe that when this is achieved, it creates a safe place wherein you can be supported to learn more about yourself and what you need to flourish.
Registered social worker (RSW, MSW). Providing counselling to students/young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, relationship difficulties, and eating disorders. Integrative and evidence-based therapies for growth and healing.
My experience working within interdisciplinary treatment teams taught me that measurable changes to mental health function are critical. I have found that the counselling process can be vague, unstructured, and without clear timelines. I set clear goals with clients and remain accountable to treatment progression and achieving therapeutic outcomes. Struggling with mental health concerns is common, and I aim to normalize this with clients so we can start treatment. I do not want to just work in the field of mental health, but want to change it. I want men to speak up and get help when they cannot cope.

My approach typically includes managing current symptoms and addressing underlying causes. Interpersonal patterns are often at the heart of depression, so our work together may include a focus on improving relationships with family, friends, co-workers, and others. Remote therapy only.
I am a Certified Adlerian Psychotherapist, owner of ClearCounselling.ca, specializing in working with Men’s Sexual Health and Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse. I work with clients from an empowering approach to move through barriers in self, relationships, work, anxiety/depression, grief/loss, identity/meaning, communication, and sex.
Seeking counseling can be a challenging process and it’s important to work with a therapist that is the right fit for you. I thrive in working with individuals feeling overwhelmed, wanting relief, or seeking a deeper understanding of themselves. I primarily focus on mood, trauma and stress-related disorders such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, identity, self-esteem, and the effects of childhood abuse or neglect. During sessions, I often draw from CBT, mindfulness, attachment and neuroscience. The decision to look for a counselor often comes at a time of crisis. I understand and accept that it is my job to build your trust and create a space for you to process experiences, challenge barriers, and reclaim your story.
I work with individuals and couples from a Narrative Therapeutic lens. I have also had experience working with men who have experienced abuse and trauma. I am an experienced counsellor and work out of the Arbour Counselling Centre in Victoria, BC. Before counselling, I worked with youth through a local church for many years.
Trevor is a Registered Social Worker (RSW), counsellor, and musician based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Trevor’s counselling practice is informed by a client-centred approach. Central to this approach is the belief that each person is the expert in their own life and inherently has the knowledge and resources necessary to guide the therapeutic process, make changes, and move toward their preferred ways of living. Trevor has a gentle and non-judgmental approach which promotes the sense of safety and openness necessary to collaboratively unpack and find relief from the challenges of life.

Our practice is focused on assessing the sources of the issues and providing strategies and tools for the management and resolution of symptoms. Specifically, we offer services for Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Relationship Improvement, Mediation, and High Conflict family situations. We welcome the opportunity to connect with you and discuss how we can assist. We offer sessions through Face to Face, Telephone, Zoom, and Skype.
We all need an outlet outside of family, friends and work to open-up about issues that need clarification. We can collaborate on solutions, and come up with ideas. Counselling often helps in dealing with problems that are bringing us down, and we feel holding us back from progressing in life.
My approach is influenced by person-centered theory using techniques from Solution Focused Therapy. I do not focus a great deal on emotions or get stuck in the past. Instead, I work on current behaviors, and where you want to go from here by breaking down what is holding you back.
With my clients, I create a confidential, non-judgmental and culturally sensitive space, where we work together to bring about the desired change in your life. While I have the training, you have had the experience. Therefore, we explore and brainstorm solutions together with my professional guidance and your feedback.
I use psych-education combined with a solution focused and goal oriented approach to counselling, while taking into consideration the unique attributes and needs of my client’s. I believe that change, although difficult, is possible with the right tools, effective goal setting and appropriate guidance.
Call and request an initial appointment by phone or email. Once you get to your appointment, explain your symptoms and what’s going on in your life.
