David Silk, ba, uvic ma counselling psychology intern


(250) 937-8097



Areas of Focus:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Building self-esteem
  • Personal exploration
  • Relationship and communication challenges



Everyone struggles in this life. Perhaps right now you are experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship challenges, systemic barriers, or maybe you are in the midst of a life transition. Whatever you are struggling with, it makes sense that you are looking for help. After all, many of these challenges can be complicated and too difficult to sort out on our own.
In therapy, I will help you make sense of the problem by providing you with a safe and non-judgemental space to discuss what you are going through. I will also use my clinical training to help you clarify what a better life could look like and the steps you can take to get there. For each step taken, I will be there to support you in whatever way I can.
I know first hand how difficult it can be to reach out for help, and I also know how impactful that simple (yet challenging) step can be. I encourage you to take that chance and reach out to me for a free consultation. Even if we don't end up working together, I might be able to provide you with something that will help you in your journey.
