my approach

Carrie Bove works from a strength-based approach that focuses on finding each person’s inner knowledge, power, and solutions. She uses a narrative based philosophy while adding elements of existential psychology, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing. Each psychological and therapeutic technique is tailored to each individual person. Emphasis is placed on a holistic view that encourages balance in mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health.



Carrie Bove is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the B.C. Association of Clinical Counsellors. She attended Simon Fraser University and holds an MA in Counselling Psychology and a BA with Distinction in Psychology. She is a compassionate, client-focused, culturally competent counsellor who is experienced and dedicated to providing exceptional and creative care to children, youth, and adults.

On A More Personal Level

In addition to her work as a counsellor, Carrie is passionate about photography. Her first diploma is in Professional Photo-Imaging (Langara College). She lives in Port Coquitlam with her family. For her own restorative practices, Carrie works to fit yoga and playing piano into her daily routine. She enjoys the outdoors and being active, but at heart she loves nothing more than a good pizza and a movie.
