About Me

Emily Von Hausen


Welcome, I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#20638) and Canadian Certified Counsellor (#10008571) working in Castlegar, BC. I have counselling experience in various settings, which include the school system where I have worked with children and youth, and film students attending a post-secondary program. I also have a background in peer support, family therapy, and substance use therapy. 


I believe in the power of vulnerability, and the healing that can occur when we are given space to be who we authentically are, safely, and without censorship or judgment. First and foremost, this is the space that I offer within our sessions - you can read more about what this looks like in the "My Approach" page.

When I'm not counselling I love being out in nature, writing music using my harp and guitar, reading and watching films, spending time with animals, cooking, and collaborating creatively with others in my community. 

Consistent education is one of my strongest values, and I have taken numerous post-grad trainings and workshops listed below:
