About Janette

   I believe that we all deserve a life we can feel good about.

   I tailor my approach to the needs of each person, because different techniques work for different people. For example, some people do well with a cognitive approach in counselling (thinking through irrational or unwanted beliefs) while others do better with an emotionally based approach (processing the painful emotions that may lock the unwanted beliefs in place).

   I offer a CBT + physiology-based approach to anxiety and pain management. I can teach you body-mind techniques to keep you centered and grounded, so you can stay calm and do better in difficult situations.

   Sometimes it is necessary to understand how your life was shaped by the generations before you, and to examine the issues that you “inherited”. Sometimes it is necessary to “process” painful situations from your childhood, in order to release them. My clients find that my warm and empathetic personality tends to foster the trust and openness that leads to a positive outcome. I offer a safe and supportive environment, where your boundaries and limits are respected.

My current insurance participation includes:  ICBC, Manulife, Green Shield.
