About

Registered Clinical Counsellor (Member # 15690) 

Registered Rehabilitation Professional (Member # 5238) 

Canadian Certified Counsellor (Certificate # 10008164)

    I’ve been a Registered Clinical Counsellor since 2018 and a Registered Rehabilitation Professional since 2016. I recently became a Canadian Certified Counsellor in 2023. I am passionate about working with clients to achieve their therapeutic goals through a holistic and evidence-based approach to counselling, health and wellness. The greatest asset I have as a counsellor is my identity as a fellow human who understands that there are times we feel lost; we feel over burdened with worry, anxiety or stress; we feel out of control; we feel like we have failed; we are shrouded with toxic guilt and shame; or we feel just plain stuck. These are the times that having a safe, confidential place to talk about and process these complex experiences, emotions and thoughts can provide opportunity for insight, healing and growth. My hope is that we can work together with our ultimate goal of using evidence-based therapies to afford you a greater sense of well being by helping you reach your goals, process past experiences and/or learn tools you can take with you for your future. I would be honoured to walk alongside you through your journey and look forward to hearing from you.

I obtained my license as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (Member # 15690) in 2018. I obtained my certificate as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (Certificate # 10008164) in 2023.

What types of topics do you counsel clients about?

   - Prenatal, postpartum and parenting

   - Trauma

   - Anxiety and depression

   - Education and employment

   - Addiction (substance and process/behaviours)

   - Eating disorders and body image issues

   - Family of origin

   - Relationships (familial, romantic and friendship)

What is your theraputic approach?

When can I book an appointment?

I am available for in-person appointments at Lagoon Prenatal (496 Owens Road) on Mondays from 2:30 pm to 4:30pm and occasional Fridays between 2:30 to 4:30pm. I am available for virtual appointments on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please refer to my booking calendar at Codie Booth RCC Jane App for virtual and in-person availability. If you need an appointment outside of these days/hours, please let me know via email at codie.jordan@gmail.com and I will do my best to find a mutually agreed upon time.

How long are counselling sessions and how much do they cost?

Sessions are 50 minutes in order to maintain confidentiality between clients. For this reason, please respect the anonymity of the client before you and aim to not arrive early to your appointment. Each 50 minute session is $136.50 plus GST ($143.33 total) and can be paid online by credit or e-transfer or in-person by cash or cheque.

 

When appropriate, usually when working with couples or EMDR, I may recommend 90 minute sessions in order to allow enough time to complete session goals based on the type of therapy being offered. Each 90 minute session is $204.75 plus GST per session ($214.99 total) and can be paid online by credit or e-transfer or in-person by cash or cheque.

Will my extended health benefits cover any portion of our counselling sessions? 

Every plan is different. I always recommend that you contact your extended benefits provider directly and ask whether they would consider funding counselling with a specific provider. Important information to disclose, or that they may request, is that I have a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) and am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) through the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC).

What happens if I am late, miss or need to cancel an appointment?

Life happens! Please note that I have a 48 hours cancellation policy and that sessions cancelled with 24 hours of your scheduled appointment time will be charged, unless in the event of accident, sudden illness or emergency. In the event that you are feeling unwell or cannot attend in-person, we can change any in-person appointment to a secure online session via Zoom or even a telephone session.  If you are late to an appointment, I will try to contact you through your preferred communication method and then wait up to 20 minutes for a response. After 20 minutes, we will likely have to reschedule your appointment.

What about confidentiality and ethics?

I strictly adhere to the BCACC Code of Ethics and the CCPA Code of Ethics, which clearly outline codes of conduct, scope and safe practice for registered members. Before we start therapy, I will review information and any questions you have that allows you to provide me with written, informed consent. Consent is always, always an ongoing conversation and can be revoked at any time. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns before and throughout counselling and I will do my utmost to ensure I am meeting your expectations. In the event that I, or another Registered Clinical Counsellor, behaves in a way that is in opposition to our ethical code please submit your experience and concerns to the BCACC Inquiry Committee.

I will never share your personal information unless I have obtained your written, informed consent beforehand. Exceptions to this are situations where I am legally obligated to report including instances where I come to know that (a) a child is in danger of being harmed or has been harmed (b) you are at risk of harm to yourself or (c) you are at risk of harm to another person.

How do I know if a counsellor is a good fit for me?

The truth is that not all clients and counsellors are a good fit and it is absolutely okay but healthy and recommended that you talk to several therapists before choosing to work with someone. Forming a strong therapeutic relationship is a critical part of counselling thus I offer a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your counselling needs and to share about myself and my practice. In the event you think another practitioner or resources would be a better fit, I would be more than pleased to offer alternative therapists or other community resources. Likewise, sometimes while working with a counsellor it becomes apparent that the next step in a client's journey is outside of their current therapeutic relationship. In that case, we would work together to create a continuing care plan that better meets your needs at that time. My ultimate responsibility as a counsellor is to help you access support that is relevant to you, regardless of whether I'm a good fit or if we've worked together for a long or a short time.

What type of professional development do you do?

I completed Basic Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) through Envision Services therapy training in June 2022. I am currently working towards becoming an EMDRIA Certified Therapist. 

I am also currently studying couples counselling through The Gottman Institute (Levels 1 and 2) and hope to complete this training in late-January 2024.

I also attend supervision with a senior Registered Clinical Counsellor on at least a monthly basis. Supervision consists of individual mentorship in the form of case consultation and professional development. I have participated in group supervision with both a general counselling and reproductive health focus.

I have completed the following professional training: 

- Basic Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

- Trauma Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (TFACT)

- Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) - Attachment Science in Practice

- The Link Between Trauma, Depression and Borderline Personality

- Recovery Capital Conference of Canada (2017 and 2018)

- British Columbia Teachers' Federation (BCTF) Health and Wellness Conference (2018 and 2023, 2024)

- Foundations of Mindfulness 

- Gottman Level 1

Social Media and Internet Communication Policy

Friending - I do not accept friend requests from current or former counselling clients on any of my personal social networking sites. I believe that access to each other's personal information on these sites could not only blur the boundaries of a therapeutic relationship, but also compromise the client's confidentiality and therapist's respective privacy.

Interacting - Please do not use posts, tagging or other means of communicating with me online if we already have an established therapist and client. These forms of communication could pose a risk to client confidentiality. Please contact me via phone or email to set up an appointment, noting that neither phone or email are not secure forms of communication. Please only use phone and email for scheduling and administrative purposes. Please avoid not include personal information via phone or email.

Business Review Sites - I do not respond to reviews, either positive or negative, due to confidentiality.

Testimonials - Please know that my presence on social media platforms or business review sites is not a request for a testimonial. The British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC) Standard for Promoting and Advertising Service stipulates: “an RCC should never solicit testimonials, expressly or by implication, from clients or other persons who, because of their particular circumstances, may be vulnerable to undue influence” (BCACC Code of Ethical Conduct and Standards of Clinical Practice and Guidelines for Registered Clinical Counsellors, 2011)."

Email Communication - I only use email communication for scheduling purposes. Please do not send personal information or questions about your therapy via email. If something does come up you would like to discuss, we will set aside time to discuss in-session, or in rare cases, via phone. Please note that using email communication poses an inherent risk of third risk interaction as email is not fully secure or confidential.
