Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC)

Welcome to ARC! My name is Clem and I am originally from Toronto, but have called BC home since 1998. I have a Masters in Counselling Psychology from City University of Seattle, and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC).

My journey in the healing professions began 20 years ago in Victoria, BC, where I studied Shiatsu and other Eastern healing traditions. Since then, I have developed a personal therapeutic style that incorporates social justice, compassion, and a holistic view of the individual. I know that choosing a counsellor can be a daunting experience; it requires a commitment of energy, resources, and a great deal of courage. I have the deepest admiration and respect for anyone who is willing to ask for help.

Throughout my time as a counsellor I have worked in a variety of settings, such as youth-based programs, outreach programs in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES), and outpatient addictions. I have also worked extensively with survivors of trauma, and clients living with chronic illnesses. Additionally, I have worked as an educator/ advisor for the implementation of harm reduction and trauma-informed practice models, with a variety of health-care organizations across Canada.

My counselling approach is a blend of various modalities, but I primarily take a Person-Centered approach that is based in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) and Attachment Theory. SP is a holistic mind-body approach that aims to create a healthy alliance between our minds and our emotional/physical bodies. This approach has been proven extremely effective for anyone struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, anger, and other life stressors that can cause dysregulation. In sessions I also draw from Narrative Therapy (NT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Family Systems, and Existential Therapy.

I have experience working with youth and adults of all genders and identities with the following concerns:

  • Anxiety & Stress
  • Depression
  • Anger Issues
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Self-Esteem
  • Survivors of Sexual Abuse
  • Relationship Issues
  • Grief & Loss
  • Chronic Illness
  • Life Transitions

At the end of the day I recognize that life can be hard, and despite our best efforts to maintain a healthy balance, sometimes things just become too much. I bring a calm, compassionate, hopeful energy to every session, and I really do believe that a strong therapeutic bond can help unlock the deep resilience that each and every one of us possesses.

When I am away from the office, you may find me exploring the North Shore Mountains or playing hockey at the local rink. However, my true passion is fly-fishing. My years of travelling and living in Japan and Hong Kong have made me a true “foodie”. I love to bring my daily catch from stream to table to share with friends and family.

If you think we might be a good fit, feel free to reach out so we can discuss the possibility of working together. I look forward to meeting you.
