She is available for both virtual appointments and in-person sessions at our Vancouver clinic location.
Hello and welcome! My name is Bernadette and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC).
My approach to counselling is based on the belief that every person is the expert of their life and capable of growth and change. I believe we all hold a story that has shaped us into the person we are today and a hope for what our story might look like in the future.
As a counsellor, I aim to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space where we can explore aspects of these stories and any internal or external barriers that may be keeping you stuck. Through this, we can work together to process and shift any unhelpful beliefs or patterns that have developed over time so you can feel better equipped moving forward. Although I primarily use techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Narrative Therapy, I believe in working holistically and will pull from various other therapies depending on your needs and goals.
It is my hope that I can meet you wherever you are in your journey and walk alongside you toward a path more aligned with where you would like to be.
