Hello and welcome to my page.  My name is Ladan and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I hold a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from City University of Seattle, and a Bachelor Degree in Psychology from Simon Fraser University with minor in Counselling Psychology. I provide services in English and Farsi. I work with individuals, couples, and families of all ages, genders and sexual orientations.

First off a question: If you could write your own story, what would you want it to say?

I believe that throughout life we form relationships with different types of struggles and issues. This relationship starts to write the story of who we are, and how we are meant to live our lives. When you are alone with these stories, it can be hard to separate fact from the fiction. Through our work together, I will provide you with a safe space to explore your stories and your relationships with them, so you can re-write your truth and create the life you deserve.

I have been in the counselling field since 2009 and my therapeutic approach is influenced by Narrative Therapy. I help my clients create a new story and therefore a new beginning. I have expertise working with individuals exploring their sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender identity. I have volunteered at Qmunity for the last year and a half and I am an ally for LGBTQ community.

Areas we can work through together include self-acceptance, anxiety and/or depression, traumatic experiences, relationships and exploring feelings of anger, shame, and guilt and their impact on your day-to-day life. Through our work together, I support you to identify and celebrate your strengths and explore the root cause of your concerns. We then work together towards a plan for your next steps.

In addition I also work with individuals who are struggling in their relationships and parents who are looking into improving their relationship with their children and each other.
