Jonathan Paez Healing low-cost counselling RMT False Creek Mount Pleasant Vancouver Affordable counselling therapy


I was born in the Philippines and raised in Vancouver which has enriched my exposure to many forms of healing from various parts of the world.


My learning journey began in human kinetics which sparked a life-long passion for human sciences. I continued on towards education and youth-work in BC, as well as in South Korea. While abroad, I had the opportunity to absorb all I could about culture, language, food, and the ways we heal across cultures. After returning to Canada, I began working as a registered massage therapist and teaching at Langara College to reconnect with my passion of helping people of all ages and abilities. It has been a gratifying adventure so far and I’m thrilled to be expanding my knowledge of the human experience through my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology studies at Yorkville University.

I am grateful and excited to begin my internship to develop my counselling skills in areas such as:

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Chronic pain

  • Cultural Responsivity & Social Justice

  • Distress Tolerance & Emotion Regulation

  • Grief & Loss

  • Mindfulness & Spirituality

  • Relationships

  • Stress & Anger Management

  • Supporting Youth

  • Trauma & PTSD

My therapy style is to respect the uniqueness of each individual I meet, compassionately working with a person as a whole towards health and healing. I’m inspired to bring my integrative, holistic, and trauma-informed skills to support your health, needs, and goals.

My education and training include:

  • Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology (in progress)

  • Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT): Evidence-Based Interventions for Distressed Couples

  • Autism Strategies for Self-Regulation, Learning, and Challenging Behaviours

  • Trauma-Informed Massage Therapy

  • Cranial Sacral Therapy

  • Emergency Medical Responder

  • Diploma of Massage Therapy

  • Bachelor of Education

  • Bachelor of Human Kinetics
