Life should be fun, joyous, soul-filling, and beautiful. But, at times, life can be challenging, scary, and overwhelming.
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.
Anya Mostrenko, MC, RCC
Meg Kruger, M. Ed, RCC
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (#18093). As an RCC I believe that each persons' 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.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the BCACC (#19942). I have more than 15 years of experience counselling children, teens, adults and families moving through life’s challenges. Counselling is a collaborative approach, and I will work hard to create a strong alliance with each client and a safe space for learning and growth.
I have worked extensively in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, behavioral issues and AD(H)D.
Therapeutic approaches include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, Art and Play Therapy, Mindfulness, Emotion Focused Family Therapy EFFT, and Trauma Informed Approaches.
Ronan Byrne, MC, RCC
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with BCACC (#20087). I have over 20 years of experience helping people reach their full potential; be it as a personal trainer, coach, or therapist. I have coached and counselled people at all stages and places in their lives, from teenagers with low self-worth to elite athletes wishing to gain a mental edge in their sport.
I view every client as unique and use an integrated approach to therapy. This may include taking a client-centred, non-judgmental, and strength-based approach.
The relationship between counsellor and client is critical to success; therefore, mutual trust, understanding and respect are the cornerstones of my practice. I take a practical, action-orientated approach that often challenges and pushes clients out of their comfort zone. I use an integrated approach in therapy using a combination of Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Positive Psychology, and logo therapy, depending on the client’s needs and preferences. Generally, I use a non-judgmental strength-based approach.
I became a clinical counsellor because I love helping people achieve their goals, overcome challenges, and move closer to their potential. My goal with every client is to get them to a place where they no longer need me.
Dr. Tara Learn
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.
