Sabrina Studney is a Registered Clinical Counsellor located in Victoria, BC, providing counselling online and in person in her office in Oak Bay.  She has flexible availability including daytime, evening and weekend options.   Sabrina appreciates working with a variety of clients with differing intentions for therapy.  Her areas of focus include working with clients who want to change their relationship with substances, supporting folks through grief and loss; including suicide loss, managing stress and anxiety, trauma, perinatal mental health and well-being, parenting in all stages, life transitions and relationship conflicts. Sabrina utilizes a variety of approaches based on a client’s unique goals, intentions, and personality – including tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy.

Sabrina’s practice is focused on establishing strong therapeutic relationships with clients to provide a safe, nurturing environment that supports client’s therapeutic goals.  She works from a place of curiosity and compassion; grounded in the perspective that individuals are the experts in their own life.  Sabrina works with clients to discover a deeper awareness of underlying cognitive, behavioral, and relationship patterns that are established through a person’s earlier life experiences.  Through exploration of these early life experiences, clients gain a better understanding of how these past experiences influence their present difficulties.  This increased awareness creates opportunity for clients to work to establish change in their problematic patterns by understanding their influential origins.

In her spare time Sabrina enjoys spending time with her family which includes her partner, two young children, and Boston Terrier.  Her best times are spent out in nature; hiking, surfing, running, and just enjoying her surroundings.
