Sherry Moore

I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) and a Registered Social Worker (RSW). 

I obtained my Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of the Fraser Valley in 2016 with a focus on Incorporating Holistic Approaches to Treating Substance Misuse. I became a RCC shortly afterwards. 

My areas of interest are in:

1)      Addiction

2)      Depression & Anxiety

3)      Trauma

4)      Grief & Loss

5)      Stress

6)      Nutrition

I use cognitive behavioural therapy and solution focussed therapy. I take a person centered approach as well as a strength based approach. I incorporate mindfulness practices and positive thinking into my practice.  

I have experience working as an addictions counsellor facilitating group therapy as well as 1 on 1 counselling. I worked mainly with individuals struggling with things like substance misuse, anxiety, depression, trauma, suicidal ideation and grief and loss. I take a holistic approach to working with individuals and focus on one’s bio psychosocial & spiritual aspects of self. 

I have over 10 years’ experience working as a social worker with children, youth and families who often struggled with trauma, mental health and/or addiction. 

I have taken the sacred journey training, from addiction to connection, at the Satir Institute in Surrey which focuses on the Personal Iceberg Metaphor of the Satir Model. I often use this model when working with individuals.  

I studied Holistic Nutrition at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Vancouver and include this knowledge in my work when relevant and helpful to my clients. I also completed 3 months of rooted nutrition cooking classes and share this knowledge with individuals who are interested in learning healthier cooking options. 

I am available most Saturdays and some Sundays. My cost is $100 per hour with a sliding scale option for those on low income.

Susanne Rontu

SusanneSusanne began her journey into yoga after taking her first yoga class in 1997. Susanne fell in love with the practice, after realizing that she had been doing yoga without knowing it during her childhood. Her passion grew, and in 2005 she completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. Since then she has taken numerous courses including Kids Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and Restorative Yoga. Susanne continues to develop her practice and instruction techniques, and just finished a three year, 800 hour Yoga Therapy Training, as well as Madhuri’s Ayurveda and Yoga Certificate.

Susanne believes that through yoga we begin to understand and feel a sense of contentment, and consequently we can understand and live in harmony inside ourselves and with others, naturally making an improvement on the world. Susanne’s passion is to share the positive effects yoga has had on her life in hopes of continuing this positive effect among others.

Yoga therapy empowers you in the healing process. We will work individually with what’s happening with you at the moment, to assist you in a unique way to support your healing process. In yoga therapy, the postures are adapted and allowing your specific needs to be met. During private yoga therapy sessions we will do gentle movements to re-pattern dysfunctional movements, alignment, breath and meditation practices.

Please feel free to contact Susanne at  or call 604-771-2720 to book your private session, or go to the website solminahealingyoga.com for more information.
