Clinical Counsellor and Sex Therapist in Squamish and Vancouver, BC

Dr. Daniele Doucet, MA, PhD

(nee Duplassie)

Clinical Counsellor and Sex Therapist in Squamish and Vancouver, BC.

Born and raised in the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Daniele moved to British Columbia to pursue her education (and to escape the freezing cold NB winters!!). She holds a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology, a PhD in Human Sexuality, and is currently completing a PhD in Counselling Psychology. Danielle has focused her education on women’s issues, sexuality, and romantic relationships, with a specialization in LGBTQ+ populations, alternative relationship structures, and sex therapy. In addition to these credentials, Daniele is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, a Provisional Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Alberta, a Certified Clinical Sexologist with the American College of Sexologists, and a professor at Adler University in Vancouver.

Daniele is a very warm and compassionate person who firmly believes in the ability of the human spirit to grow, change, and heal. She understands the vulnerability that people bring to therapy and places a large emphasis on providing an open and accepting environment to discuss therapeutic issues. Danielle uses a holisitic approach to counseling, focusing on the thoughts, emotions, and physiological processes that contribute to life problems. This approach necessarily involves recognizing that each person’s journey is unique and tailoring clinical interventions to the individual vs. using a “cookie cutter” model of therapy.

In her spare time, Daniele can be found hiking, skiing, cycling, cooking, traveling, and/or enjoying time with her family, 2 kids, and wonderful community of friends.
