Counselling Service
For Women

Healing Starts With A Single Step

If you have landed here, you may feel like you have lost yourself. Perhaps this started during a life transition (like motherhood or a relationship beginning or ending), or this is rooted in coping mechanisms from your past. 

Navigating change alone can feel exhausting, and the lack of progress can feel disheartening. We are pack animals and evolve from small tribes. Connection is a powerful influence on our health. You weren’t meant to walk through challenge or heal alone.

Together, we can foster relational healing and reconnection to yourself.  I offer a supportive relationship and a safe space where you can feel seen and heard, while fostering self-awareness and self-compassion and positive change. 

I offer in-person clinical counselling for women in East Vancouver and Burnaby, as well as virtual clinical counselling for women across B.C. and parts of Canada.

Hi, I am Adrienne.

Meet Your Therapist:

Since I could talk, I have been deeply curious about why people do what they do. 

After a decade-long career as a nutritionist, I gained a profound understanding of how our past wounds can impact our choices and behaviours. During this time, I started looking inward, examining my choices. In my healing, I realized the transformative power of consciously addressing emotional pain.

This realization inspired me to follow my passion for understanding human behaviour, leading me to become a counsellor. 

My approach is characterized by warm non-judgment support, using evidence-based therapeutic techniques that allow you to heal and find the freedom to embrace your desired life.

COUNSELLING SESSIONS

To ensure we are a good fit before beginning counselling sessions, I offer a free 15-minute phone call to all prospective clients. Each session after this is a 50-minute counselling session.

I offer individual counselling services to help you work through life’s challenges in a supportive and non-judgmental environment, using evidence-based approaches to help you develop the skills and insights you need to manage your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours more effectively.

Why See A Counsellor?

Life’s journey is like taking a walk with a bag on your back, filled with experiences—some lifting you up, others weighing you down. The tough ones can make life’s challenges feel like steep hills you’re not sure you can climb.

Counselling provides a safe space to unpack and explore these experiences’ significance and impact. By processing them, you can gradually lighten the load, heal, and move towards living the life you aspire to have.
