Welcome

My name is Elsie De Vita and I am a registered psychologist with a private practice in Vancouver, British Columbia.

This web site provides an overview of my approach to psychotherapy and counselling. Please take a few moments to check it out and get to know me.

In brief, I provide psychological services to individuals, couples, families and groups for a wide variety of problems.

As a psychologist, my approach to psychotherapy emphasizes the therapeutic relationship to facilitate personal growth and support authentic relating.

Over the years, I’ve come to view depth psychotherapy as a transformative process; a “waking up” to the truth of one’s own life.

This process involves exploring painful experiences including thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a safe and compassionate environment. People can then risk showing themselves, remembering what was lost or injured in their lives, and work towards regaining their humanity.
