Hi, I'm Lacey (she/her).

Healing takes time and asking for help is a courageous step. In such trying times, I think that there is a lot of pressure to rush and to put our problems in the past. I strongly believe that therapy is an opportunity for self-discovery, learning, finding your truth, and fully accepting yourself. From my perspective, there is no timeline on wellness, so it’s okay to slow down, take a breath, and fully embrace your journey.

Since you may be sharing your story with me, I think it’s important that you get to know me a little bit. I was born and raised in Northern BC and I am of Swiss and Tahltan descent. I am a fur parent to 3 Italian Greyhounds and a Rescue. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, scoping out Netflix, and furthering my education.

I have a Diploma in Indigenous Studies, a Bachelor of Arts in Justice Studies, and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. Additionally, I have completed training in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Indigenous Cultural Safety, and various suicide risk assessment trainings (RRSR and ASIST). I have also completed my Basic Training in EMDR and I am in the process of working towards becoming a fully certified EMDR Therapist.

I enjoy working with youth (13+) and adults and I am inspired by seeing people make positive and meaningful changes in their lives.

My areas of focus are:

• Anxiety

• Depression

• Self-Esteem

• Stress

• Trauma

I am grateful to live, work, and play on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Wet'suwet'en and Gitxsan peoples. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) as well as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).

I look forward to providing a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space for you to express yourself. If you'd like to meet for a 15-minute free online or phone consultation to see if I'm a fit for you, please contact me or book online.

Session Fee: $175 (including all taxes) per 50-minute session
