Wellness Cafe, Community for Mental Health

Counselor/Therapist in Burnaby, British Columbia

Services

Offering therapeutic services for adolescents, adults, elders in the Vancouver, British Columbia area.

Individual

At the Wellness Cafe you are not treated as though there is something to fix in you. Rather, you seek personal growth and understanding. In the life you have there are challenges you feel, anxieties you struggle with, and many other formidable psychic foes that are hindering your personal growth. I do not like using labels, but understand their us in simplification huge and infinite individual perceptions. We create a comfortable environment of equality and security. Thus, we do make house calls to your favourite space, whether your home or some other healing, sacred space you love. This less formal approach to counseling is becoming more common and sought after in a therapist today.

Relationship

Relationships can form in various different ways, making their living confusing. People can find themselves struggling with feelings that hinder and block their capacity for connection. Personal baggage can affect perceptions of relationships; our society creates barriers that make lasting love connections difficult. There are a lot of things preventing you from having a beautiful relationship.

At the Wellness Cafe we offer couples emotional awareness on a far deeper level. This will lead to conscious change and growth in your personal intimacy capacity. You can open up to the full spectrum of emotions, which are a natural part of any intimate relationship. This awareness and acceptance of all emotions will change your intimate relationships. Society does not encourage the full expression of emotions and feelings, and we have become less confident with and capable in dealing with powerful emotions experienced in intimacy and romance. We specialize in helping couples develop their communication skills. Safety is taught and needed for free and open communication, meaning that all parties feel safe being honest with each other. Intimate communication will be explicitly about your feelings and the emotions generated in the connection you have with your partner.

Many people today are seeking more from love and intimacy than just a domestic relationship. Sexuality is being explored with more vigor and less fear of persecution. These new explorations in alternative lifestyles demand a different caliber of therapist. We, at the Wellness Cafe, are compassionate and non-judgmental people you can share your concerns with, who can give professional and experiential feedback as advice, and will offer understanding via personal experience.

Family

The Wellness Cafe specializes in families with special needs members, and this means both limited and exceptional. Families that have members who are challenging  in any way need help in creating a healthy and nurturing family environment. I have been working with families of Autistic, Downs Syndrome, Developmentally delayed, Delinquent, and Genius members for over two decades. I understand the struggles that your family is going through, and I can help you create a beautiful family.

Group

The Wellness Cafe offers groups sessions for people seeking:

  • Success
  • Mental strengthening
  • Freedom from addictions
  • Productivity
  • Joy
  • Community

Online Sessions Available: zoom, Duo, etc.

earth growth I work with a range of clients that present a variety of unique circumstances. However, the common thread among them all is they are not reaching their full potential.

During our initial meeting we will discuss your specific areas of concern, as well as assess if we are the right client/therapist match. From here, we will be able to create your personal treatment plan and discuss how it can best work in your day-to-day life.
