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.

More Info About My Practice

Additionally I have experience in addictions residential treatment. This is useful for those struggling with alcohol or cocaine that is harming relationships, career goals, and athletic focus. I have also worked in mental health treatment providing self-defense skills for people dealing with a narcissist or sociopath. Sometimes we are hurt by those closest to us, and supporting those with a current or ex-husband, wife, girlfriend, or boyfriend who has cheated or had an affair is one of my specialties. It is so essential to be understood and to have skills and new directions that actually work. That is why safe boundaries and assertiveness skills are such an important part of what I offer.
