Counselling couples. 

Couples will go through tough situations. Seeing a counsellor can help couples either develop or strengthen the proper tools and skills for properly handling any situation that may arise. Common struggles for couples include conflicts around communication, finances, parenting challenges, loss of emotional safety and infidelity. When not handled correctly, this can cause gaps between partners who then become adversaries rather than teammates. 

We’re able to help couples learn to reconnect and truly hear each other. We use emotion focused couples therapy (EFT), Gottmann and family systems therapy. We also use strategies drawn from other therapies and tailor our approach to each unique couple we work with.

Relationships require work if we want them to reach their potential. Are you ready to put the work in?

We are here to support you along your journey.

We are now accepting both virtual appointments as well as in-person appointments.  Click below and schedule your first visit today!

Lisa Moore, ma

It’s my goal to help people heal and grow through periods of transitions in their lives. Many of us experience loss, grief or unhappiness as we transition from one role to another in our daily lives. 

It’s my honour to help counsel you during these difficult transitions and help you heal from any of these experiences:

About 10 years ago, I became involved in helping a family with special needs children and it was through that journey that I came to the work I am most passionate about; helping parents of special needs families. Using play therapy, I am able to access children for ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Autism and other types of learning disabilities.

      Languages: English

      My mission is to help you navigate the difficulties and challenges you’re facing. Whether it’s family conflict, separation/divorce, past trauma, substance misuse or life transitions, there’s no better time to work through it. 


      I am a licensed Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) through the CCPA. I completed a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University. I have continued my education since graduating, and I am currently completing a certificate program in Child and Family Forensics. 

      Through my professional and personal experience, I’ve found that the BC family law system isn’t the best setting to resolve family issues related to children. I’m passionate about helping parents be the best they can be for their children outside of a courtroom.

      Services I provide include: 

      • Individual and couples counselling
      • Co-parent counselling
      • Divorce coaching 
      • Group counselling and classes for parents and anger management 

      I specialize in the areas of family conflict, parenting and high conflict separation and divorce.

      Clinical Counsellor (CCC) & Certified Play Therapist

      Languages: English, Mandarin, Cantonese & Malay

      Counselling is more than just a professional process. Rather, it is about a personal journey that both client and counsellor take in collaboration. The cooperative relationship paves the pathway for recovery, healing, and breakthrough. Ultimately, the main thing for a client to know is that they are not alone in this venture, and understanding will be given with empathy. In my practice, I am invested in my clients, making sure that they are my main priority throughout every session. I am focused on creating a sense of trust, security and comfort for those in need of such refuge. It will be an honour for me to serve you to the best of my ability and work together to ensure a better future.

      When it comes to treatment and therapy, I implement an integrative approach that consists of a variety of techniques. This is encompassed by the likes of mindfulness-based strategies, solutions-focused mapping, and client-centred directions. Overall, I take what I know of the client and curate the best possible form of treatment for their concerns or issues at hand. I never fail to inquire further for more information that can be helpful to the goals that clients want to reach. However, I am also respectful of certain boundaries that need not be crossed at the specific time, unless it would be helpful to do so under the consent of the client.

      My passion is for the generations, and I continue to seek out further professional development so I can give the best help possible to those that need it. My biggest themes in practice are authenticity, empathy, compassion, and understanding. I am also familiar with different cultural backgrounds and can speak Mandarin, Cantonese, English, and Malay for those that may be more comfortable with these languages.

      Currently, I hold a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology with Yorkville University and I am also working as a clinical counsellor with healthcare professionals at a Youth Wellness Centre. My role there is to provide sustainable support to youth-at-risk and their related family members or caretakers using a Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy lens. I bring this experience to my private practice to help clients and their families in whatever way I can.

      Languages: English & Punjabi

      My aim is to provide a supportive, non-judgemental and safe environment to help support you through life’s difficulties. When life challenges us, it results in emotional and psychological stress in our lives. My mission is to support you in regaining control. 


      There are times where the challenges we face in our daily lives become too difficult to manage on our own. We may need someone to talk to. I can help navigate those who are looking to add meaning and purpose to their lives, generating motivation, and driving direction. The ability to achieve wellness and stability in our lives, exists somewhere inside each and every single one of us. The disconnection we experience from the things that bring us happiness and joy may cause us to feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by stress. My aim is to provide a supportive, non-judgemental, and safe environment to help support you through life’s difficulties that may have you feeling stuck and under pressure. Lifes challenges result in emotional and psychological stress in our lives and my mission is to support you in regaining control.

      My work stems from a holistic and integrative approach which includes mindfulness, breath work, and evidence-based modalities such as CBT, ACT, and DBT. I believe it is important to have a well-stocked arsenal of techniques as it enables me to effectively meet my clients needs. I assist my clients in accepting life challenges, discovering their strengths and abilities, and committing to change. My warm, gentle, empathetic, and attentive approach allows my clients to feel validated, empowered, and hopeful. I work from a variety of perspectives and work towards building self-compassion into your daily life.

      I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Counselling. I have several years of experience working with youth on the Autism spectrum as a Behaviour Interventionist.

      I have experience working with a broad range of mental health difficulties along with life challenges. I have worked alongside parents and teachers. My main areas of focus are those who present with anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. I also work with those who have experienced grief/loss, life transitions (school, work, moving), anger, and conflict resolution. I have experience helping support clients in setting boundaries in place, regaining control in their lives, and practicing self-compassion and mindfulness. My background provides me with an understanding to work with couples and families through a range of issues. Throughout my years of experience, I have also worked with those who identify as LGBTQ.

      My warm, gentle, and compassionate nature allows me to build trust/rapport with my clients and allows me to create a safe place to openly share all thoughts and feelings. Ever since I incorporated self-compassion and mindfulness into my own life, I have responded to challenges in my life with kindness and understanding towards myself. By soothing and comforting ourselves when we’re hurting, we offset self-criticism and feelings of failure. I believe mental health is just as important as physical health. My duty is to join you on your path towards creating space for healing, change, and improved sense of well-being.

      In the space of counselling, therapists can exhibit the traits and behaviours that our clients are missing in their daily lives.

        My goal is to help support others as they strive to improve their overall wellbeing. I value a therapeutic relationship and believe that it is essential for successful therapy. Thus, I aim to create an environment where all individuals feel safe and heard, and I work collaboratively with clients to help them reach their goals. I want my clients to leave therapy feeling less overwhelmed, less stressed, and more hopeful and positive about themselves and their lives.

        I am passionate about working with parents, families, and children. I love helping parents feel equipped and empowered to connect with, and parent, their children. I am drawn to working with families who have experienced loss or trauma, including foster and adoptive families. I love seeing hurting relationships healed and restored. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment where connection can flourish.

        My therapeutic approach is based on the importance of cultivating strong and secure attachments and is informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Emotionally Focused Family Therapy (EFFT).
