Master’s Level Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC)
Hi there, my name is Eric. I’m a Master’s Level Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association.
My Master’s degree (MS) is in Clinical Mental Health Counselling and I hold a Bachelor's degree (BS) in Psychology.
I have over nine years of experience in the counseling field in both Canada and the US. I’ve worked in inpatient and outpatient settings which have given me many experiences, learning, and personal growth.
As human beings, I believe that connection is paramount. I join with others in an empathic, genuine, and nonjudgemental way.
I often collaborate with those needing help with trauma, addiction, anxiety, relationship concerns, stress, and depression. I see therapy as requiring a holistic touch as there are many avenues to healing.
My goal is to be client-centered and eclectic with my therapy approach. Using a screwdriver to hammer in a nail doesn’t often work! Through working together I hope we are able to open doors that have not yet been opened, close doors that require closing, renovate rooms needing a change, and discover blind spots which were unseen before.
Empowerment is vital to the therapeutic process, and I aim to help you find the starting point in your journey of self-discovery.
1. Accelerated Resolution Therapy - Advanced Certification
2. EMDR - Basic Training Completed
3. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
5. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
7. Dialectical Behavioural therapy (DBT)
I also draw from attachment theory, family systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and The Gottman Method
Certified Yoga Instructor & Certified Mindset & Somatic Coach
I am a mindset and co-active life coach certified through CTI. While my biggest achievement in life has been overcoming my own mental health challenges, my background is in theater and classical philosophy. I like to use my theater training to bring creative and somatic elements to the coaching, so expect play and movement!
I am passionate about helping those who suffer from anxiety, depression, and extreme depression, to radically shift their mindset and therefore shift their mood.
This work is so important to me because I know first hand the pain of struggling with mental health, and I believe deeply that we all inherently deserve to be fulfilled and to enjoy this life!
I love helping my clients gain focus and structure, and overcome procrastination. My clients are held accountable to their goals to help keep them on track to achieving their dreams.
I first came to yoga almost two decades ago on the recommendation of an acting teacher who suggested it as a way to improve breath control.
Once I immersed myself in the practice of yoga I fell in love with it. For me yoga is the one thing that helps me experience a true sense of calm and that is what keeps me coming back to my mat. My approach to yoga is a result of my deep reverence for both tradition, and the insights of western alignment.
Between traditional training in hatha yoga in Mysore India, and western style training here in Calgary, I have completed over 500 hours of teacher training. I like to teach foundational yoga poses in a slow and controlled way that helps practitioners build strength and flexibility and connect to the present moment and the experience of being in their body. Having fun on the mat is always essential!
Valerie Di Paolo
Holistic Nutrition Practitioner C.H.N
My name is Valerie Di Paolo, and I’m Certified in Holistic Nutrition Counseling. I currently perform my services out of the Zen Clinic.
I earned my Diploma at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and hold the designation of C.H.N., Certified in Holistic Nutrition.
I work with people of all ages from pediatrics to adulthood. In a compassionate manner, I help clients identify how their current diet and nutrition habits may be impacting the physiological function of their body systems or mental health. I guide clients towards their health and wellness goals by creating a sustainable nutrition and lifestyle plan aimed at supporting each body system and the bio-individual.
Sessions are conducted after reviewing completed intake forms in advance, to assess the entire health and wellness picture including potential body system imbalances for the root cause. This falls in relation to symptoms being experienced, main concerns, lifestyle, and wellness goals.
Each session holds a judgment-free attitude and is geared towards empowering each client with educational information. This information is intended to serve as lifelong tools and strategies to achieve optimal health and wellness. Clients leave empowered with knowledge alongside a nutritional, supplement (if required), and lifestyle plan with the option to continue with me along their journey.
