My name is Sara Place and I am a Registered Clinical counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.

I am grateful to have had a career path which has allowed me to work in the fields of mental health and education, supporting children, youth, and families in various roles over the years.  I have worked in the education system for 15 years, many of which have been in a school with a mental health focus.  This experience led me to pursue my Clinical Counseling Masters and find a balance of private and public work.  I am available to work with individuals, families, couples and groups

It is my honour to deeply listen and support your personal journey through whatever life circumstance brings you to counselling.  I value your individual experience, and my approach to counselling will be personalized - with your identity, expertise, and goals as the driving force of our sessions. 

In sessions with me you can be assured of a feeling a sense of safety, confidentiality, belonging, and acceptance.  

"The person in peak-experiences feels their self, more than other times, like a prime-mover, more self-determined. They feel their self to be their own boss, fully responsible, fully volitional, with more "free-will" than at other times, master of their fate, an agent."

~Abraham Maslow, Toward a Psychology of Being, 1968
