Cayla Steinbach (she/her) is a Registered Clinical Counselor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC#18949) and holds a Masters of Education in Counselling degree from the University of Northern British Columbia.
Rooted in person-centred and trauma informed care, I work within an integrative practice model that prioritizes the safety and wellbeing of all individuals from different walks of life. I provide my clients with an environment that fosters deep self-exploration and the space to create new understanding and meaning for the pain they may be holding.
I believe that all humans should be met with unconditional positive regard, and I take great care to provide a warm and caring environment that is free from judgement and honours each person’s sense of autonomy.
Respecting that those seeking counselling have the capacity to make decisions that are in their own best interest, I bring authenticity and curiosity to the therapeutic relationship and give my complete support and acceptance.
Areas of Counselling Expertise
My counselling services support individuals, couples and families who are struggling with a variety of health challenges and areas related to depression, anxiety, grief and loss, self-esteem, trauma, stress management and addictions.
Personal Qualities / Strengths as a Counsellor
It is through my own adversities and life work that I am able to walk in this world whole heartedly and engage with myself and others from a place of vulnerability and compassion. My greatest desire is to support you in feeling seen and owning your story to cultivate a place of worthiness and acceptance.
