Alisha McKay considers it a great honour to walk alongside those who are struggling and experiencing pain or disconnection in their lives. She is passionate about nurturing her clients' innate strengths and empowering them toward a life of health and wholeness. With warmth and empathy, she seeks to provide a safe space in which to explore challenges, process their impact, and work toward deep and lasting change.
In her practice, Alisha draws from her training in Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy, Neufeld's attachment theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Gottman Couples Therapy. She is particularly passionate about working with women, teenage girls, and young adults as they explore themselves and navigate their way into becoming who they're meant to be. It is her hope that in helping her clients engage experientially, they will discover both a deeper connection with themselves and those with whom they are in relationship.
Alisha's areas of counselling practice include:
- Self-worth and Identity
- Personal Growth and Development
- Family-of-Origin Issues
- Grief and Loss
- Life Transitions
- Faith and Spirituality

Alisha holds a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from ACTS Seminaries at Trinity Western University, and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the B.C. Association of Clinical Counsellors.
