Counselling for Individuals and Couples

Change is never easy and you don't have to do it alone. I am an experienced and compassionate therapist and my goal is to help you heal unhelpful patterns and beliefs so that you can form deeper connections, both with yourself and others. Together we identify what’s going on and work through the emotions that are surfacing using various forms of therapy that consider both your mind and your body.

Guidance from an experienced therapist can help you process feelings of anxiety, trauma, or grief. This leads to feeling more empowered and fulfilled. I’m here to help you recognize that you have everything you need to cope with your emotions and thrive.

My practice specializes in:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Trauma
  • Loss
  • Life Transitions
  • Relationship Conflict
  • All aspects of sexuality

TANYA PODLOZNIUK, MC, RCC

My aim as a therapist is to create a safe environment where you feel heard, seen and supported in your experience, whatever it might be. From this secure and non-judgmental base it becomes possible to access the innate stores of courage and vulnerability necessary to grow and gain new insights.

My clients are high functioning in their public-facing lives but report feeling stuck or unhappy in their private lives. I work with people experiencing the resurfacing of old traumas, loss, major life transitions, and difficulties in their primary relationships. Without the right supports, these life experiences often contribute to states of depression, chronic anxiety, and burnout. For others, there is an unplaceable discomfort they’ve been managing for years and the exact source is not well understood.

No matter how your pain presents itself, I am here to help you gain your footing and move forward with a sense of greater empowerment. It is an honour to witness my clients heal from painful patterns, beliefs and experiences and to watch as they develop new capacities and insights. I am passionate about this work and grateful to my own therapists and teachers who have provided me this guidance throughout the years.

I have advanced skills and training in: Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Attachment Work, Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, various body-based trauma therapies, Feminist Theory and Existential Therapy. All of the therapy I practice is evidence-based, person entered, trauma-informed, attachment-based and sex-positive.

FAQ

Are you taking new clients?

Yes. I am currently taking clients.

Where are you located?

On Mondays and Tuesdays I’m in East Van at 2647 East Hastings St.
This office is part of a midwifery clinic, but you do not need to be on your reproductive journey to see me there.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays I’m on the West side at Suite 207- 2190 Fir Street.

Do I need to do something before the first session?

No. Not a single thing.

How often do I come in for sessions?

This is really up to you, but generally I see people weekly when they are struggling or working though something. Over time the frequency will shift as feels right for you.

Are your services covered?

My fee is covered by most extended health plans. Please ask you insurer if you are covered for Registered Clinical Counselling.

What kind of people do you work with?

My practice is very diverse. I work with adults from all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. I do couples work with straight and LGBTQ+ clients.

Is the therapy confidential?

All counsellors are bound by association to ensure therapy is completely confidential. However, there are four instances that would compel me to disclose something that you said in therapy. If I believed you had an imminent plan to hurt yourself or another person, or there was a child in your life in danger I have a duty to report this. The other possibility is if anything in your life came into a court of law a judge (and only a judge) could subpoena my notes.

Intrusive thoughts about harming yourself or your baby are actually very normal. Research tell us that over 80% of the population experiences such thoughts. These thoughts are safe to share with me and will be kept confidential.

What happens if we’re not a good fit?

I fully support your therapy even if it means finding another therapist. If I’m not the right therapist for you, I’m happy to refer you to a trusted colleague.
