My Approach to Helping
My name is Geoff Williams and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Registered Clinical Social Worker. I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Victoria, a BEd from the University of Toronto, an MSW from Wilfrid Laurier University, and an MA in Native History from UNBC. My background includes English, Scottish, Welsh, and St'at'imc (Statleum) ancestry. I work with all ages and backgrounds to create a safe space where you can see your personal concerns from a new perspective and discover new possibilities. It takes courage to engage with therapy and self-improvement and it is my privilege to help you build the life you want.
I specialize in performance enhancement and personal growth so you can reach your goals at home, at work, and in sports. I also specialize in areas essential to living your life fully, including affair recovery, healthy boundaries and communication, work-life balance, indigenous support, athletic performance, and services for depression and anxiety. My approach includes Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a new way of putting your challenges in context, and tools for handling painful feelings and thoughts so you can be happier and more successful in any area of life. I also use somatic experiencing and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) to remove mental blocks. If needed, I provide formal diagnosis and treatment for mental health disorders if these are getting in the way of your life or happiness. Most importantly, I prioritize our therapeutic relationship and connection for the change you need.
