About Elana

My professional history includes family counselling, adult and geriatric mental health, youth crisis work, supporting adults with disabilities, and crisis counselling.

My work is based in the principle that the body is self-healing. Whether we break a bone, cut the skin, or suffer an emotional trauma, our bodies arealways working towards self-righting. I use techniques informed by affective neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology to help the body regulate, heal, move through old wounds, and to help us come up with new, more adaptive ways of being in the world. 

I have been working in the helping profession for over 12 years. I have a Master's of Social Work from the University of British Columbia, a Bachelor's of Social Work from the University of Victoria, I am a registered social worker with the BC College of Social Workers, and a registered clinical counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.

I have additional training in:

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

Emotions-Focused Family Therapy

Somatic trauma treatment

Attachment-based therapies

Narrative Therapy

Motivational Interviewing

Indigenous Cultural Competency for Mental Health Care Providers

Whether you are dealing with anxiety, relationships, a crisis, or wanting something more from life, I invite you to come in for a free 20-minute consultation.
