Hello and welcome,
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #19779) practising in Squamish, B.C., on the unceded and ancestral territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nation.
My career began by earning a bachelor's degree in Child and Youth Care, followed by over a decade of experience as a Youth Care Worker and Outreach Counsellor. I then went on to pursue a master's degree in Counselling Psychology.
My practice now focused primarily on supporting young adults, parents, and couples. My approach is developmental, attachment, and trauma-informed, utilizing a biopsychosocial lens. I incorporate various modalities such as Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Nature Based Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Solution Focused Therapy and is Gottman method informed. I am also trained as a Positive Discipline Parenting coach.
Some of the common challenges that I support clients with include help managing conflict, processing grief, coping with loss and life transitions, recovering from the impacts of trauma, addressing challenges related to stress, anxiety, depression, and substance misuse, as well as seeking relationship counselling and parenting support.
Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to supporting you on your wellness journey.
Warmly, Rhianna Williams
