Andrea Olsen

I am a therapist who empowers you through meaningful care. I have been there - the struggle, the trauma, the trouble navigating difficult and overwhelming feelings, and the pain of not feeling like yourself or having much hope. I know that seeking therapy isn’t an easy step and I commend you for starting your journey by looking to therapy. I am here to support you in finding what is best for you to reach your goals. If you work with me I promise you a safe space where you can process difficult feelings, and work through triggers that are no longer serving you. I help you re-establish your connection to self and gain an intimate understanding of all that is going on physically, spiritually and emotionally. I am here to journey with you into the depths of you true being. You are worthy of care.

Most of my clients are surprised by the humour and play I bring into our sessions together. Therapy with me is about experiencing all emotions- the fun, the free, the hopeful, as well as processing and giving space for the difficult emotions; the fears, the hurt, the grief, the anger and the sadness.

I use a gentle multi-modal approach rooted in the principles of neuroscience, pulling from therapeutic models such as gestalt therapy, somatic therapy, EMDR, person-centred therapy, existential therapy, feminist therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and emotionally focused therapy.

What does all of that really mean?

It means that you are unique and I will use different modalities to curate the best approach for you and help you meet your therapeutic goals.

I hold a Masters degree in Counselling. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with BCACC, a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) and psychotherapist with the CCPA. I am a white, cisgender female. I deeply value allyship with BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities and understand privilege and oppression and the roles these play in mental health. I work and live on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

With curiosity, compassion, kindness and some humour, I would be honoured to support you as your therapist.
