Elspeth Robertson | Counselling Art Therapy Vancouver | Intrinsic Therapy

Originally from Ontario, I came to Vancouver in 2018 for my counselling education. Flash forward a few years and I am still loving exploring the beautiful BC landscapes and eating my fill of the best tacos I've ever had. 


I am a lifelong learner, guided by curiosity and open exploration. In my downtime, I enjoy snuggling my cat Nimbus, making art, enjoying nature, and reading.



When has one thing always worked for everybody?

I work from an eclectic, client-centred approach that integrates various evidence-based therapeutic styles and techniques, to uniquely tailor the therapeutic experience to each individual client's needs.
