Ola Abugharbiyeh, MA, MACP, RCC
I am extremely passionate about psychotherapy and clinical counselling. I feel priviledged to hold hope for my clients while providing them with evidence-based modalities on their journey towards healing. My utmost focus is to help you achieve the aspired liberation from emotional, psychological blockages and obstacles.
Besides private funding, I also provide services to ICBC and CVAP clients.
I provide psychotherapy and counselling in English and Arabic.
Our goal is a life of thriving and flourishing not just surviving!
Who's your Counsellor
Hello there and thanks for your interest in my services!
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors . I hold a Master degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University in New Brunswick. I also hold two other Master degrees in Human Rights and Development Studies, Psychology and Education.
I chose to immigrate to this beautiful province over a decade ago. I left a successful life in my country of origin to explore life out of my comfort zone. With all honesty, I am extremely glad that I did! I originally come from a mixed family (Palestinian and Italian). I was born and raised in East Jerusalem and received education locally and internationally.
Prior to committing to a full-time private clinical practice, I worked in education, management and clinical supervision for over 20 years. My previous experiences in Canada as a senior manager in nonprofit organizations have provided me with a platform to work with various issues with clients and manage and supervise counsellors and paraprofessionals in the fields of individual, couples and family counselling.
At Jade Counselling & Wellness I focus on my clients' holistic wellness. I am privileged to collaborate with amazing individuals, couples and families who put their trust in me and I put my belief in them and their resourcefulness. I walk alongside them as the anchor and compass. I am guided by their commitment and feedback. For me, this career path is a passion and science. I practice evidence-based modalities towards healing, flourishing and thriving.
My sincerest wishes to you on your journey towards clarity and growth.
