Laurissa Kowalchuk, M.Ed, RCC
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor in downtown Vancouver. Our work together will allow us to explore both your internal and external experiences to shed the light of awareness on what may be contributing to the places that feel stuck and confusing, as well as those that cultivate a sense of clarity, balance and well being. When we are provided with a space that is non-judgmental, supportive and creative, we may feel a greater ease to look at the places within where there is fear, hurt, anger and anything else that we feel an aversion to accepting about ourselves. While this is sometimes painful and messy work, when it is done with gentleness, skill and empathy it can lead to relief of some of our suffering for both ourselves and those around us as well as greater satisfaction toward fulfilling our potential as a human being. It is in this awareness that transformation can occur, as our natural wisdom will lead us there. I have specialized training in EMDR, Mindfulness/Meditation practices & Grief and Loss.
