Matt Vlasic (M.A. R.C.C.)
Matt has extensive experience working with adolescents, young males, children, and families. He finds working with this demographic greatly impactful and rewarding.
Matt started his career as a youth worker at the Burnaby School District where he was supporting youth with school and individual issues. After completing his Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology, he started his career in counselling at a community agency where he provided therapy to children, youth, individuals, and families.
In a short time he became supervisor of a program that offered services to at risk youth and their families. Matt adapted an attachment focused perspective in his therapeutic work and believes that much of the issues are rooted in early experiences that can be corrected. His therapeutic specialty focuses on the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression and addiction issues. He believes that mental illness has an impact on the whole family system and he extends his treatment from the individual to the family.
His therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Attachment Informed Modalities. Matt believes that individuals have an innate ability to heal and develop resilience with the right support.
