MEET Rim (She/They)
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors, a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional level II (CCTP-II).
I have both a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Masters of Arts in Counselling.
8 years ago, my journey working in the mental health field started as a psychiatric nurse and then evolved into becoming a psychotherapist.
Outside of the practice, you’ll find me in one of these four places; either at the gym lifting weights, creating music on my guitar, sitting in solitude writing poetry or hiking which will most probably lead me to getting lost in the woods.

Coming from a war and queer background myself, I have a deeper understanding of what it feels like to face injustice, oppression and losing our sense of self to be able to survive. It is my intention and commitment to compassionately navigate this recovery journey with you and help you find again your inner voice and power.
Having lived in three different countries, I value greatly cultural influences & your own family constellation. Therefore, while working together, you will find me using an eclectic approach so I can honor and hold all parts of you with reverence.
My approach is founded in the elements of the following theories & modalities:
Internal Family Systems
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
Emotionally Focused Therapy
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
It takes courage to seek therapy and to care for yourself. I will always ensure to meet you where you are on your journey.
Whether you are navigating a complicated grief journey, experiencing emotional disturbances, feeling disconnected from yourself/body, or struggling in your day to day activities & relationships, I will be your companion on this complex but rewarding journey of connecting back with your true self and creating meaning out of these adversities.
