Julie MacNaughton, R.C.C.

About Me:

My Name is Julie MacNaughton. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). I have a master’s degree in Clinical Counselling from City University of Seattle. I am passionate about helping people through trauma and am signed up for a trauma-specific training program called Somatic Experiencing in order to help people who with the effects trauma can have on them. I offer services in counselling and wellness in Parksville B.C.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outside in nature involving surfing, paddle-boarding, diving in the oceans and lakes, and going on walks with my dog.

“Trauma is a fact of life.

 It does not however,

 have to be a life sentence.”

 Dr. Peter Levine

My Philosophy:

I believe people are the expert of their own lives and will work with you in accessing your own inner strength and knowledge. When people are living as their authentic selves, they experience more joy, wellness, and less symptoms associated with stress. I will support you in finding your inner strengths, develop new coping strategies and enrich your quality of life.

My goal is to help you learn about your authentic self through learning techniques and coping strategies to help you live your best life and feeling empowered.

I believe happiness and being content are within everyone’s reach and will work with you to find what you need to improve your life. I will work alongside you while you find clarity, connection and contentment in your life and relationships. I tailor each session to best suite your unique and individual needs that will leave you feeling heard, understood and empowered.
