Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (M.A.)
Registered Clinical Counsellor
Assistant Clinical Director
Christabel is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. As part of the Leadership Team at the clinic, Christabel helps to oversee our intern program and build policy to keep Jericho Counselling adapting to the ever-changing needs for our clients and our community.
Christabel comes from a background working with youth with special needs, including those diagnosed with developmental, behavioural, socioemotional, and learning challenges, and this experience has impacted her approach to counselling work. Christabel believes in providing support that is tailored to the client’s unique needs. Rather than applying a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, Christabel honours diversity by integrating several theories and techniques into her work including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as mindfulness interventions.
Christabel believes that every person has the capacity to problem solve and achieve their goals. She looks forward to collaborating with her clients to explore their personal strengths and goals, in order to help them on their journey toward change. Her current areas of focus include supporting clients experiencing challenges related to anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, stress and work-life balance, behavioural concerns, and grief.
Christabel provides counselling services in English.
Vancouver Counsellor Christabel Umaguing is accepting new referrals at our Virtual Clinic location on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
