Jennifer Satish, Counsellor | Innova Therapy Inc. Coquitlam & Maple Ridge

Life has its fair share of ups and downs and navigating it can be a challenge sometimes. This is where I get to partner with you in your journey.

I grew up being told I was “too sensitive” and soon learned that was not an acceptable way to be. I was often lost in my thoughts and emotions and tried to figure it out myself. Over the years, I have come to learn that humans were built for connection. Additionally, a lack of connection in safe spaces can cause shame, pain, and trauma. This in turn impacts the way we interact with the world around us. I have had the privilege of being in these spaces where I have the freedom to be “me”.

I continue to learn and evolve everyday and it is my hope that others will find this freedom too.

It is an honour to be invited into your life to work alongside in helping you discover and learn more about yourself and your experience.

 

My Professional Bio

I completed my undergraduate studies in Psychology and went on to earn my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University.

I work with adults and young adults with various concerns:

Depression and anxiety

Relational and familial issues

Spiritual and identity exploration

Trauma

Stress, perfectionism, and burnout

Boundaries

Challenges faced by BIPOC communities

 

My Counselling Approach

I believe much of the therapeutic process is based on the client-counsellor relationship. It is my sincere hope to create a safe, compassionate, and non-judgemental space where you can bring your authentic self.

I work largely from a humanistic-systemic lens and believe that the systems in us and around us impact the way we experience ourselves and the world around us. Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a therapeutic approach that I enjoy working from. IFS really lends well to the process of exploring who we are in a trauma-informed way. Furthermore, IFS also helps us to understand the parts of us that function to protect and help us maintain a sense of stability.

I am deeply passionate about equipping you in a holistic way to meet your goals and journeying with you in it.

Counselling can sometimes feel risky and maybe you’re not quite sure what to expect. Wherever you may find yourself, I invite you to book a free consultation and have a chat with me.

I look forward to connecting with you!
