Mojdeh Rameshni, RCC, holds a Masters of Counseling Psychology degree from the City University of Seattle and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). Mojdeh has training in Drug and Alcohol treatment, as well as in Child and Youth Care, Mindfulness-Based Somatic Therapy, Trauma-Informed Somatic Practice, Critical Incident Stress Management, and is currently finishing her training in Synergetic Play Therapy.
Besides her professional training, Mojdeh has developed her capacity to work with people through different avenues. One is through her employment, as an Outreach Clinical Counsellor, Private Practice, as well as through her work as Employee Assistance Program Representative for the International Longshoremen Warehouse Union, of which she is a member, having worked as a Longshore Worker herself. Mojdeh knows about overcoming hardship and traumatic experiences not just through the people she has successfully supported in different settings over the years, though, but also through first-hand experience. Setting up a new life in a new country as an immigrant after fleeing Iran as a young child provided her with many opportunities to develop her resilience in overcoming the challenges this entails. Mojdeh’s deep compassion and warm presence help guide others in facing their own challenges in a safe and caring environment, necessary for addressing the underlying causes of emotional distress.
