about me photo (1).png


I'm Carli Des Cotes and I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) seeing clients out of Vancouver, BC. For the past 8 years, I’ve worked in a variety of mental health centres - more recently with Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health, providing individual and group counselling to those with trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction and young adults with first episode psychosis.


what to expect

People come to counselling because they want freedom from something they’re carrying and my role is to get to know you, so I can encourage and empower you towards that. You can expect a warm, genuine, relaxed and non-judgmental approach, someone who will be in your corner throughout our time together.

The client/counsellor relationship is the most important part of this process, so it’s my goal to create a space where you feel safe and supported.
