Interesting Facts About Me

Hi, I am Chyanne!

I feel that it is such an honour to be allowed to share in someone’s journey. I 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 am 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.

I hold my Masters in counselling psychology from Yorkville University & my Bachelors of Arts from Simon Fraser University, with a joint major in psychology and criminology. I have extensive experience working with individuals diagnosed with concurrent disorders, specifically those who have been deemed not criminally responsible due to mental disorder (NCRMD). My practice is open to all.

My spare time is typically spent outside with my children & partner. 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.
