My approach to therapy is holistic in that I address your issues from all aspects of your being, including your mind, body, emotions and spirit. I draw on years of work with advanced techniques of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, training in body centered therapies and on Psycho-spiritual principles. My methods are scientifically validated and evidenced based.

Dr. David Dubin MD
Medical Advisor – Neurofeedback, Alpine Counselling Clinic

Dr. David Dubin graduated from The University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey and then completed a residency in Emergency Medicine. He subsequently worked as an Associate Clinical Professor of Outpatient Medicine at Boston University.

Disenchanted with treating patients primarily with medication, Dr. David Dubin started treating patients with Neurofeedback and saw rapid, meaningful and often dramatic results. Equally remarkable, he found these changes to be enduring.

He founded The Dubin Clinic for Direct Neurofeedback in Los Angeles where he provides Direct Neurofeedback & LENS Neurofeedback to adults, adolescents, and children.

Carmen Everall
RTC, CBT, BMT

English & French

With over 20 years of experience in Body-Mind Therapy I am successful at helping clients unravel mental and emotional layers to identify root causes of problems and develop strong coping skills by working with methodical and evidence-based approaches. Together we will create a customized action plan that may include but not limited to goal setting, breathwork, meditation, Chi Kung, and journaling by examining feelings, thoughts, and behaviours.

I offer a unique style of therapy that is customized to each clients’ holistic needs. The whole person is considered – body, emotions, mind, and spirit for optimal health and wellness.

Counselling offered in English or French.

Tara Read 
M.Ed., RCC

My greatest passion is assisting individuals to remember and reclaim who they truly are – their unique strengths, knowledge, abilities, potential, and purpose in this life. In fact, it is my mission. I serve as a catalyst or activator to help “wake you up” and disrupt the false beliefs that have held you back.

You may be feeling stuck, frustrated, overwhelmed, exhausted, and perhaps even a little hopeless. Life may feel endlessly centered around suffering or like a daily exercise in the art of survival. Deep within however, you know there is much more for you. Do not be discouraged! As someone who has walked this path, I am well equipped to show you how to navigate it.

Hi, I’m Julia, Welcome! Thank you for reaching out. 

I have a worldview lens given my 18 years of experience while practicing in South Africa, USA, and Canada including Haida Gwaii, Prince Rupert, Smithers and Houston.

I believe in the importance of a safe place where you can feel heard, and respected.  I view healing as a journey of returning or coming to a state where one feels safe, integrated and connected to their inner and outer world. 

I am a Certified Clinical Counsellor (CCC#9429) with a Master of Science Degree in Counselling Psychology and Certified in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Lola Rozan RTC

English and French

Sometimes, life can feel very heavy, and I believe that being hard on ourselves is the first thing we tend to do, while it might be the last thing we actually need. Is there uncertainty in the direction of your life? Do you feel stressed and anxious?

Learning to be kind and compassionate towards yourself is where everything begins. This is key to the process, because facing and sitting with the pain is inevitable to rebuild what is broken.

Meghan Kennedy MA., RSW

Sometimes strong feelings and emotions can be difficult and overwhelming to deal with. It can be even more difficult to open up to someone about your experiences and take the first step towards healing. In my practice, I hold a space for you where you can feel safe to share your feelings without judgement and with compassion and kindness.  My approach is strengths based and goal orientated and is guided by modalities and principles including:

  • CBT
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
  • Trauma Informed Care
  • Harm Reduction
  • Mindfulness.

Lori Sangha
RSW., Master of Counselling, CCC

I believe that solutions for life’s struggles can be discovered through a respectful, collaborative process in counselling. I offer a safe, caring and holistic approach, helping you to discover and build upon untapped inner strengths and resources so you can move towards resolution, healing and success.

I support you to take a compassionate and curious look at your inner world of thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and memories. I teach you tools to loosen the grip of old narratives, unhelpful thought patterns and negative self-beliefs.

Dr. Nisha Sangwan RCC

English, Hindi and Gurjarati

My passion and focus has always been working with kids, youth and families. I excel at developing innovative and comprehensive treatment plans to improve the lives of families. I have a unique ability to connect with teens and youth, and I love helping parents help their teens and kids.

Mental health issues, especially traumatic experiences and major life stressors can significantly impact our daily lives, and make us feel disconnected from ourselves, our loved ones, and other important aspects of our life. I believe that building such connections is the key to healing. Hence, my work focuses on helping my clients build healthier perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships.

Yegi Nasseri
MA. Clinical Psych, RCC.

English & Farsi

It takes courage to reach out to someone, share personal stories and feel unsure about the counselling process. My own life experiences and previous counselling practices have enabled me to interact and assist individuals and families on issues ranging from trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety and anger management to interpersonal relationship difficulties and substance abuse.

Shawn Hannay
MA., RCC

My work is informed by the idea that all problems are about relationships. When these relationships are working, we feel a genuine sense of wellness but when any one of these relationships are fractured in some way, our sense of well being is threatened and we will begin to see symptoms physically, emotionally, and/or in our relationships.

Lisa Stefani
MA., RCC

I work with the idea that all behavior has purpose and meaning. My intention is to create a warm and encouraging environment that provides people with genuine opportunities for reflection, insight, and positive change.

Valuing empathy, openness, humour, and warmth, my approach to counselling is collaborative in creating a plan designed to meet your goals.

Sessions are conducted in a safe and judgment free environment.

Geoff Lyon
M. Ed., RCC

Counselling can be helpful for several different reason:

  • Identifying and working through emotions, such as grief, depression, rage
  • Calming the whirl of thoughts and clarifying thinking
  • Building richer connections with those around you
  • Moving past constricting beliefs or life patterns
  • Getting support as you make decisions that are congruent with your needs and values
