Jeff Hoy, RCC
Registered Clinical Counsellor
I am a therapist who wants to help you, in the way that works for you, and at the pace that works for you. I seek to create a safe, calm, and open place for you to explore what is really going on. I have lived a richly experienced life - and I know first hand what it's like to be in a difficult place. I believe that my broad life experience - with both positive and many negative experiences - gives me an exceptional ability to understand, empathize with, and inspire the clients I work with. My training enables me to help clients explore uncomfortable underlying emotions, thoughts, and memories that keep them from living the life they want. Many of my clients comment on how I bring a positive, gentle, authentic, and sometimes fun energy into the work we do, and I do believe in bringing myself into the therapy room as a person and not just a therapist. I use a multifaceted approach to therapy including Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Non-Violent Communication (NVC) - what does that mean? I will be able to connect and work with you in the way that works for you - by orienting to thoughts, ideas, attitudes and beliefs, or by connecting to deeper, vulnerable parts of you, or by exploring how emotions show up for you and what you do with them. I am always honored when someone works with me in a therapeutic context, as I believe this work is the highest duty we have to each other as humans.
