Dr. Janice Stuart Vancouver Psychologist

Are you feeling lost, overwhelmed or stuck?

Hi, I’m Dr. Janice Stuart. Searching for a psychologist in Vancouver can be an intimidating and confusing process. The information on this website will make it easier for you to decide if I am the right therapist for you.

How I approach counselling

I provide counselling and psychotherapy in downtown Vancouver 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). This holistic and integrative approach incorporates mind-body interactions. It also takes your personal way of processing into consideration.

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 hard to keep tackling the problem on your own.

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

As restrictions due to COVID-19 are gradually lifted, I will begin to open my office for in-person counselling where appropriate. I will continue to offer sessions remotely, over an encrypted video and audio connection, or by telephone.
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 the Canadian Psychological Association.
