Welcome! My name is Jasmine and I have called Vancouver my home for over two decades. I’ve always felt a deep connection to the ocean and the mountains surrounding us here in the city.
I completed my M.A. in Counselling Psychology from Adler University, and my B.A. from the University of the Fraser Valley. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), and I am also a Reiki Practitioner who understands the impact our energy fields have on our overall sense of wellbeing.
My style could be described as compassionate and non-judgmental and I work to create a safe and trusting space for clients to explore their inner worlds and come to new insights about themselves and their lives. My philosophy of the change process is holistic and integrative, and I understand the importance of looking at the entire person, acknowledging and celebrating that each individual is unique and diverse.
I strongly believe that our bodies hold many memories, and part of my work with clients is to help them to get in touch with the wisdom inside. Another aspect of my work with clients is to explore thoughts, emotions and memories. I do this with the intention of drawing out themes and patterns that may be limiting your experience of joy in life, and transforming these into more life affirming beliefs. I feel that we are creative beings who, with hope and encouragement, can find our own inner wisdom and strength to make changes in our lives.
My training and experience enables me to support you in working through the following issues:
- Relational conflict in heterosexual, gay, lesbian, and bisexual relationships.
- Difficulties with trust / intimacy
- Low Self-Esteem
- Stress management
- Anger management
- Alcohol or Drug problems / dependency
- Embracing Highly Sensitive Personality Styles
- Life Transitions
- Childhood issues
- Utilizing life coaching and energy healing
Outside of counselling I enjoy yoga, hiking, painting, and being the mother of a delightful daughter. I am also an Adjunct Professor with Adler University and I enjoy supervising new, and student counsellors.
