Erin Perkes

EMDR Certified Therapist

Thrive Collective

I work from an Adlerian depth perspective, acknowledging family of origin experiences, attachment style, and internalized beliefs about self, others and the world that guide our movement through life. I embrace the Adlerian concepts of valuing uniqueness of individuals, encouragement, and early life experiences, and hold dear Alfred Adler?s words that, ?everything can also be different.? I believe strongly in peoples? ability to make what they feel are positive changes for their lives.

I also integrate other therapeutic modalities, including: parts work (IFS), narrative, mindfulness, body-based and cognitive-behavioural methods, based on individual client needs.

In addition, I possess Level I and II training through the BCPFFA to provide informed therapy to Fire Fighters and other First Responders and Public Safety Personnel. I completed my master?s degree in counselling at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Vancouver, BC, and am registered with the BCACC as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC).
