My name is Ana, I am a Registered Professional Counsellor (Candidate RPC-C) and Registered Therapeutical Counsellor (Candidate RTC-c) in Vancouver BC.
My practice is trauma-informed, compassionate and client-centered. My passion is to support my clients by getting in touch with their inner wisdom and restoring the connection with themselves, creating a safe and confidential place for them to reflect, feel their emotions, share their stories and challenges.
I am informed in Cognitive Behavioural, Narrative, Dialectical and Somatic therapy, and I also draw from Mindfulness, Attachment Theory, Inner Child Work and Feminist Therapy.
Areas I can support clients in are: immigration and the challenges of adaptation, loneliness, divorce/break ups, personal growth, career challenges/transitions, anxiety, setting boundaries, attachment styles, improving relationships and dating, learning efficient communication skills, emotional regulation, unpacking core and limiting beliefs, grief and loss.
If you feel called to taking care of your mental health and emotions, understanding your mind, body and soul, and improving your ability to cope with stress and life’s challenges, send me an email and I will be in touch for a discovery phone call so we can see if I am a good match for your needs.
I currently offer virtual individual sessions. Online sessions have many advantages as they are easier to fit your busy schedule and routine. You only need a cell phone or computer with wi-fi, and a private space. You can attend a counselling session from your home, park, nature or any other place you feel safe to express yourself.
I offer sessions in Portuguese and Emglish.
