Heritage Family Health is here to help guide you, and your family, through the difficult moments in life.
Our goal is to provide you with the support you need to feel happy, anxiety-free, connected, and fulfilled.
Dr. Tara Learn
Anya Mostrenko, MC, RCC
I am a Registered Psychologist (#1925), with the College of Psychologists of BC. I have more than a decade of experience providing therapy, and assessments, to teens and adults. I believe in working closely with individuals to first identify the issues, and then to figure out real-life solutions. My goal is to provide you with respect, support and guidance to help you reach your full potential.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (#18093). As an RCC I believe that each person’s challenges make sense, given their unique circumstances. Counselling supports individuals to heal and transform, so that they may achieve their hopes and dreams for the future. As your counsellor I will work with you to create a collaborative space that is free from shame, blame, or judgment. Through respectful dialogue, I will support you, provide compassion for your experience, and celebrate your successes with you. We will work together as a team, to identify your personal strengths, resources and a plan for moving forward.
Areas of Interest: Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Loss, Infertility, Perinatal Loss (Miscarriage and Stillbirth), Supporting Individuals with Diverse Abilities, Family/Life Stressors, Interpersonal Conflicts, Trauma, Addiction, Systemic Oppression and Social Justice
Anya is certified to provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
Danica Elliot, MC, CCC
I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (#10009727).
I believe that we develop habits and perspectives throughout our lives, influenced by the people and the world around us. I want to support you in exploring your history and revealing patterns you may not even be aware of, so that you can take control of your future and come to terms with your past. I hope to be your guide in providing clarity or insight into your unique situation, or simply offer a listening ear, free from judgement, to walk with you through the challenging times.
I believe in the importance of boundary-setting and self-compassion and seek to provide my clients with the knowledge and skills to empower themselves. We will work together to create a therapeutic plan that meets your individual needs and that helps you to feel better quickly.
Areas of interest include: Parenting, LGBTQ+, Trauma, Life & Family Stressors, Anxiety, Depression, Pregnancy & Postpartum, and Neurodiversity (ADHD & Autism).
I provide treatment to adults, pre-teens, adolescents, couples, and families.
