Lacey Poltorasky MA, RCC, CCC
Online Sessions: BC, SK, NT, NU, YT, MB, NL
Lacey is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC), Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC), an EMDRIA-Certified EMDR Therapist, and a member of EMDR Canada and the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).
Lacey’s extensive training and experience with complex trauma as well as cultural, racial, and sexual orientations (LGBTQIA2S+), allows her to work with individuals regardless of their presenting issues from a place of deep respect, compassion, and understanding.
Lacey was born and raised in Northern BC, and is of Tahltan and Swiss descent. As such, Lacey brings a style that is both flexible and efficient to each of her sessions. She believes therapy is an opportunity for self-discovery, learning, finding your truth, and fully accepting yourself. And while there is no timeline on wellness (meaning it’s okay to slow down, take a breath, and fully embrace your journey), she is dedicated to resolving your issue as fast as possible.
Lacey holds a LGBTQIA2S+ positive space.
