Dave Clark, MA, PreLicensed Counselor
I consider it a tremendous privilege to walk with clients through their fears, hurts, and life transitions. My passion is seeing clients experience healing and a renewed sense of purpose and vitality in life. My counselling style is warm, compassionate, and engaged. I believe that when clients feel valued and understood, they can find the safety to explore their feelings, wounds, and longings. As well, I take a collaborative approach to therapy and enjoys partnering with clients to work together towards their goals. I have experience working with youth, university students, adults, couples, and families, with a focus in the areas of: couple and family Counselling, trauma and crisis, anxiety and depression, grief and loss, and existential and spiritual exploration.
I received a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of British Columbia, a Master of Arts in Theology from Regent College, and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Trinity Western University. My approach to counselling is influenced by my training, which includes Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and Gottman Couples Therapy.
Cecilia Peters, MA, LPC
I aim to engage with clients both empathically and holistically in my work within sessions. Being present with authentic listening and positive regard are two powerful aspects I use for building a healing relationship with each client. I believe therapy is a space for safety, honesty, and finding a connection with your deeper self. Together, we will create an environment for positive growth in your therapeutic process. Using a combination of evidence-based, therapeutic modalities, I will tailor treatment to fit your individual needs. Approaches I may use include Cognitive Behavioral, Strengths-Based, Play Therapy, and Person-Centered.
In conjunction with counseling work, I am entering a Doctoral program to become a Clinical Psychologist, Fall 2022.

Debra Belack, MA, LPC, NCC
I believe that maintaining and focusing on our mental health should be as normal as attending to our physical health, and just as important. Therapy is a way to work through the challenges of life, understand ourselves more fully, and work towards a place of wellness unique to each person. Therefore, I use multiple evidence-based modalities, coupled with a therapeutic style that is impartial, non-judgmental, and encouraging, specific to each person’s needs.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a certification in the treatment of trauma. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Bloomsburg University, with a concentration in Family, Children, and Youth, and a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. As a therapist, I’ve supported individuals with addictions, life stressors/transitions, and multiple diagnoses such as depression and anxiety disorders in outpatient, inpatient, residential, school, and community settings. More specifically, I specialize in working with women, children, and people who have experienced trauma. In the past 15 years I have worked with over 2,000 children (infancy through adolescents) and their caregivers, as well individuals who have experienced trauma (i.e. sexual abuse, domestic violence, car accident, etc). I look forward to beginning a journey of healing with you!
