"Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen." -Brene Brown
Hello. My name is Rachel Snarch and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I am also registered with the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP). I provide individual counselling at the Grant Street Wellness Clinic in the heart of East Vancouver’s Commercial Drive.
I recognize that each person walks through the door to my counselling office carrying with them unique life challenges and asking for support can often be a difficult task. With that in mind, my priority is to create a therapeutic environment that is warm, welcoming, and nonjudgmental. I value your inner strength and knowledge and will work collaboratively with you to help meet your individual needs and goals.
By way of background, I obtained my Masters degree in Educational Counselling at the University of Ottawa and hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at McGill University. I have over five years of combined clinical counselling experience and educational training, and seek professional development opportunities on an ongoing basis in order to ensure that I stay current within the field of mental health and psychotherapy.
I would be honoured to work alongside you in your path for further self-exploration and support. I welcome you with unconditional acceptance and a safe place to land.
I look forward to hearing from you.
