Dr Janice Stuart Vancouver Psychologist

Are you feeling lost, overwhelmed or completely stuck?

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

How I approach counselling

I provide counselling and psychotherapy (both online and in my downtown Vancouver office**) for adults with anxiety, trauma/PTSD, depression, stress, relationship problems and more. The approaches I use include: Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (‘EMDR’ where appropriate). My holistic and integrative approach takes your personal processing style into consideration. For example, I’ll take advantage of any mind-body interactions 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 this from my therapy clients . . .

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

If you are feeling 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.
