Interesting Facts About Me

I love horror & true crime, any time of the day

A pluviophile; the rain makes me happy

I became a Mama during the pandemic

Hi, I am Chyanne! I am completing my master’s in counselling psychology through Yorkville University, and I am joining the Aster Wellness team as a student counsellor. I have my Bachelors of Arts from Simon Fraser University with a joint major in psychology and criminology. I currently work in mental health with individuals with concurrent disorders, specifically those who have been deemed not criminally responsible due to mental disorders (NCRMD). I am very eager to begin working in a private practice setting at Aster Wellness.

I feel that it is such an honour to be allowed to share in someone’s journey and feel that beautiful things grow from vulnerability. I am passionate about exploring both the collective and very unique experiences we live through. I’ve chosen to pursue counselling with the hopes of building meaningful connections with my clients, reinforcing that you are not alone, and helping to develop the skills you need to manage the ups and downs of life.

I would describe myself as approachable, passionate, driven, and optimistic. I counsel from a trauma-informed perspective, understand the value of client empowerment, and pride myself in engaging in open and authentic communication. I have worked with adults, teens, and children, as well as having personal experience with depression and PTSD. I do my best in making uncomfortable conversations comfortable.

My spare time is typically spent outside with my daughter, partner, and our dog Stevie. Getting some fresh air, being active, and enjoying the beautiful BC scenery always improves my mental health and helps me reset. I look forward to connecting with you and working collaboratively together to reach your goals.”
