Jyoti Rana

Registered Clinical Counsellor

Hi, I’m Jyoti. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor and Registered Clinical Counsellor in BC. I bring more than twelve years of clinical counselling experience with evidence-based approaches to support you and your well-being. My goal is to see my clients become the best versions of themselves. As thoughts and emotions find expression, witnessing the growth and healing process is what I love about being a therapist. When a seed is planted in the soil, we don’t make it grow; we provide the right conditions, like sunlight and water, for it to bloom. Similarly, when a safe space is held, healing happens within.” 

Emad Zahedi

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

“Hi! I’m Emad, and I am dedicated to serving individuals from diverse backgrounds and providing a safe and judgement-free space that allows clients to freely speak their truth. In our sessions, I will equip you with practical tools for coping with stress, improving communication, and fostering healthier relationships. If you are ready to take the next step towards healing, I would be honoured to be part of your journey and look forward to working with you.”

Sabrina La Tona

MSW, Registered Social Worker

“Hi, I’m Sabrina. I see you as the expert of your own life, and I am here to share evidence-based knowledge that can further support you, and work alongside you on your journey. Together, I can be gentle and also direct, depending on your comfort level and what works best for you. I’m proud of you for making it this far and am ready to support you.”

Jamie Whitehead

Registered Clinical Counsellor

“Hi, I’m Jamie. I really believe that therapy can be both effective and fun. It doesn’t have to be super serious, difficult and awful all the time — helping people have those Aha! moments (as Oprah would say) and feeling more confident to keep moving forward in their lives is what it’s all about. I’m always excited and honoured when someone chooses me to be the person to be alongside them on their journey.”

Jamie Warrack

MSW, Registered Social Worker

“Hi, I’m Jamie. I ensure individuals can anticipate sessions characterized by respect, honesty, kindness, compassion, humour, and empathy. Employing integrated and holistic approaches, I recognize the interconnectedness of life experiences and their impact on physical, psychological, behavioural, and spiritual well-being, guiding individuals toward discovering new paths forward. I am deeply passionate about the counselling process and feel privileged when individuals entrust me to accompany them on their journey towards healing.”

Katya Verziolva

MSW, Registered Social Worker

“Hi, I’m Katya. Grounded in trauma-informed practice, I guide couples and individuals in exploring past experiences, processing emotions and navigating life transitions. I help uncover patterns that are keeping you stuck and unfulfilled, fostering the development of effective self-regulation and communication skills. I specialize in empowering individuals to challenge negative self-narratives, find direction, and discover their unique identity. I support couples in building the nurturing, passionate and connecting relationships they envision.”

Peter Stone

MSW, Registered Social Worker

“Hi, I’m Peter. My goal is always to make you feel safe and seen, celebrating and honouring that you have entered into the experience. I believe we are all experts on our own lives and try to explore that by working from a strength-based, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, client-centred perspective. I believe we all possess the strength and courage to make the most of our brief time that we are gifted here and I consider it a privilege if I can support someone in some small way to reach that goal.”

Laurie Hamm

MSW, Registered Social Worker

“Hi, I’m Laurie. I believe one of the best gifts therapy has to offer is a space and therapeutic relationship to feel seen, heard, and supported. My approach is invitational, strength-based and compassion-focused. I aim to individualize the therapeutic space to meet your personal goals, which means you have the freedom to decide to take what is helpful from sessions and leave what is unhelpful. You are the driver, and I am the navigator: I offer options for directions to turn, but in the end, you get to choose which turns you want to take.”

Sam Molen

MSW, Registered Social Worker

“I’m Samantha Molen, but I go by Sam! I believe therapy is an opportunity for empowered self-exploration and a chance for you to see things in a different way. Together, we can talk about the things that matter most in your life and collaborate on your goals to achieve emotional healing and well-being. I focus on establishing a positive relationship built on trust and safety, where you can be your honest self and share your more vulnerable truths. I have incredible respect and admiration for people willing and able to be curious and courageous enough to go to those deeper and darker places. I want to help you find liberation and self-reclamation from our oppressive systems that cause us to feel and think we are inadequate and unworthy of love, acceptance, or belonging.”

Nicole Wheaton

Registered Provisional Psychologist

“Life can be difficult sometimes, and it takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for support when facing challenges. I am so glad you are here. When life becomes difficult, it is a counsellor’s role to support you in navigating those challenges. I want to help you shift from surviving to thriving! I place a large emphasis on the importance of establishing a therapeutic relationship that is collaborative, accepting, and authentic by honouring the unique life experiences each client brings into sessions. Together, we will work towards a common goal that honours the unique person that you are. My role is to support, empower, and provide you with a safe space to grow. I have an inherent respect for a client’s cultural values and freedom to exercise choice. I value your feedback and want to make sure you feel heard throughout our time together.”
