Stefanie Iverson - Registered Clinical counsellor
Stefanie Iverson, MC, RCC
Being a “helper” has always been in my nature, which is why I pursued an education in counselling psychology and obtained a Master’s degree in it. I find a true sense of purpose in knowing I have been of service assisting others in their journey to self improvement, providing an empathetic sounding board, and non-judgemental guidance.
I believe that counselling is a collaborative process in which my role is to walk alongside each of my clients, providing them with the emotional support and psycho-educational tools to draw upon the strength & solutions that inherently lie within them. I consider it a privilege to be invited into people's lives, often during very difficult times, and to be entrusted with the private & intimate details of their struggles. It is my honour to be able to offer a safe place for my clients, and to hold the space for them so that they can feel heard and begin to heal. I work with adult individuals, those seeking relationship & marriage counselling, and women during their prenatal/postpartum period.
I graduated from City University of Seattle in 2011 and hold a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology. I am a member in good standing with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). I have also completed Levels I and II through the Gottman Institute, and received certification training on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Given that the relationship between counsellor and client is one of the most critical factors in determining positive outcomes for therapy, I offer a no fee 15-minute phone consultation to determine if we are the right fit for each other, and to answer any questions you may have.
