Lani is not currently accepting any ICBC claims-connected clients
Lani (she/hers) is a relationship-specific counsellor who believes in creating a warm and inviting space where precious relationships can feel comfortable revealing opportunities at their own pace.
Be it the relationships most precious to us (our loved ones) or the relationships most integral to us (our business partners), Lani enjoys uncovering core issues that can be at the root of conflict and get in the way of connection. She strives to support relationships to pivot from the circular frustrations they often come in with, supporting them to better understand how to get unstuck from their patterns so they can spend more time enjoying each other or building together.
Her 15 years working at Vancouver Coastal Health as a sexual health promotion specialist and clinical educator has especially equipped her to support couples with their sexual wellness needs which often requires a level of education, sensitivity and robust comfort not commonly found. She hopes clients can communicate their needs, desires and goals and fully express themselves without the risk of judgement.
Lani honours diverse abilities and uses a variety of therapeutic tools (including Emotionally Focused Therapy & Gottman Method) to create emotional shifts that increase empathetic understanding. Lani has worked in education and counselling in a variety of capacities since 2005 and, as a trained workshop facilitator and leadership developer, she is extremely adept at helping people embrace their best communication and leadership skills.
Lani is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors and a Registered Teacher with the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation. This duality helps Lani approach wellness from both an educational and supportive standpoint.
