Hello my name is Rhianna Williams, 

I am a Squamish local originally from the interior of BC. I am grateful to now reside on the unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation. 

I am thrilled to be joining the Peak Experience Counselling Team in Summer 2022. 

I hold a masters degree in counselling psychology and an undergraduate degree in Child and Youth Care. 

I specialize in working with youth and young adults. I have experience supporting individuals struggling with daily stress, interpersonal challenges, anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use issues and those facing discrimination, racism, poverty and marginalization. I have over a decade of experience as a youth care worker and family outreach counsellor. 

I practise from a biopsychosocial, attachment and trauma informed approach and draw from a number of modalities including: 

- Cognitive behavioural therapy 

- Solution focused 

- Mindfulness and Nature based and 

- Family systems therapy 

I work collaboratively with clients to build therapeutic relationships to foster improved functioning, mental and emotional wellness and life satisfaction. 

In order to maintain my personal wellness I enjoy spending time in nature with friends, family and my partner, mountain biking, skiing, hiking and trail running. I dream to one day have a therapy dog to accompany me on adventures and in session, when appropriate. 

Thank you for your commitment to your own personal wellness and interest in working together. I look forward to connecting soon.
