My name is Danielle Buchanan and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors as well as a Certified Professional Life Coach.
It’s an honour and a privilege to be doing the work I do. I have experience working with grief and loss. I bring experience supporting individual adults, youth (14+) and groups who are experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression and grief through the power of building a trusting connection and holding space for all of you to be seen and heard in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
I have specialized training in Grief, Suicide to Hope, Advanced Narrative Therapy, Life Span Integration Therapy, and Mindfulness Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Many of those I work with are experiencing loss, such as loss of a loved one, loss of career, loss of relationship or loss of sense of self.
Many of my clients come to me seeking support with their experiences with:
Grief and Loss
I focus on individual therapy and also lead 6-week long grief and loss groups. I feel my personal experience has helped me become the therapist I am today where I can hold space for folks on a much deeper level. In choosing to share my grief story, I recently gave a Tedx talk. My story, just as yours is constantly shifting and evolving.
When not engaged with clients or furthering my therapeutic knowledge, I enjoy spending time outdoors and can often be found enjoying the local trails with my beloved dog Faith.
