Do you feel lost, overwhelmed or completely stuck?

Dr Janice Stuart Vancouver Psychologist

Hello, I’m Dr. Janice Stuart. Searching for a psychologist in Vancouver can be an intimidating and confusing process. However, I hope the information I have provided here will make it easier for you to decide whether I’m the right therapist for you.

Areas of Practice

I provide counseling and psychotherapy (both online and in my downtown Vancouver office**) for adults who suffer from trauma/PTSD, anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship problems, to name just a few. (See the full list under “Services” in the website menu above).

The therapy approaches or modalities I use (where appropriate) include:

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)


Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

My holistic and integrative approach takes your personal processing style into consideration. For example, I’ll take advantage of any mind-body interactions between us whenever they arise during your therapy sessions.


What my clients are telling me

In my daily practice as a Vancouver psychologist, I often hear from clients how hard their journey has been. It can be painful and frustrating, and in times of adversity, difficult and distressing. It’s often impossible to deal with these kinds of problems on you own.

I often hear these complaints from my therapy clients . . .

It’s frustrating. I know. I’ve been there myself.


When you feel lost or unsatisfied you may find yourself . . .

  • Experiencing a sense of powerlessness
  • Making poor life choices
  • Feeling emotionally overwhelmed
  • Trying to cope with depression, anxiety or a past trauma

If these are the kind of issues you’re facing, I can help.

With your willingness and commitment, and my skills, expertise and passion for this work, we can tackle the painful, the distressing and ‘the stuck’.

This therapeutic process is an investment in yourself that can pay off immediately, and last a lifetime!

Whenever appropriate (or mandatory), I will continue to follow the recommendations for psychologists set out by the B.C.Government, the College of Psychologists of British Columbia, the British Columbia Psychological Association and by the Canadian Psychological Association.
