Jineya Naicker

July 26, 2017

With over 17 years of work experience in the field of mental health, Jineya has been a clinical counsellor in Rossland and Castlegar for almost 7 years. She has advanced training in topics including childhood trauma, critical incident traumatic events, PTSD, EMDR, anxiety, depression, anger management, stress management, identity development, burnout, compassion fatigue, grief and loss, among other clinical issues. Since opening in 2017 she’s expanded her practice to include supporting clients navigating our medical system with a particular focus on autoimmune diseases, hormone health, and chronic pain.  As a female, immigrant, and person of colour, Jineya is passionate about providing services to those living with multiple marginalizations and actively works to dismantle and repair systems of harm both in her professional and personal life.

Currently, she works with adults of all kinds (18+), extensively with teachers, health care workers, Teck employees, college/university students, parents, and any individuals desiring change in their lives and relationships. More recently her continued education includes psychedelic-assisted therapy, ADHD, and IFS although she does not have advanced certification in those areas.

Her clinical style stems from trauma-informed mindfulness-based approaches, EMDR, CBT, and attachment theory. As a counsellor, she hopes to bring people into a space where they feel supported to learn more about their current values, emotions, and beliefs, and assist them in creating a life that strongly reflects their goals and desires.

Historically her clinical background includes working closely with immigrants and refugees regarding the unique barriers they face when transitioning to a new country, as well as working with geriatric and college populations. She has a strong interest in working with members of the LGBTQ community, specializing in working with intersectional marginalization issues that multiple-minority groups face.
