My Story

Hello, My name is Rhea Jacobs. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Trauma Therapist, and Director of Firefox Counselling. I am working as a mental health professional for more than a decade.

I did Masters in Applied Psychology, Counselling Psychology, Political Science, and Hindi Literature in India and Canada. I am professionally trained in more than 4 therapeutic techniques BUT I will meet you where you are in your self-healing journey.

I have gone through a lot. I was at the same place at one point in my life that you are now. Whether you have had challenges with trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, resentment, or difficulty in relationships, I have gone through them as well.

I have overcome these challenges, and I promise it is possible, but you must do strategic work using scientific techniques and a positive mindset. 

When I was experiencing the effects of trauma, I was inspired to expand my knowledge of mental health and develop expertise in helping others, especially those related to being stuck in trauma and post-trauma impacts.

Based on my vast experience and empirical knowledge, I developed an eclectic trauma-informed approach to healing the trauma. My approach is deeply rooted in psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness, and research-based techniques. It also allows room for customization to your unique needs in terms of personality, learning style, comfort level, and unique situation. What makes this approach different is that a combination of different therapeutic approaches are intertwined together into easy baby steps that you can easily include in your busy life.

You can also talk to me in Hindi, Punjabi, Gujrati, and Urdu.

Due to being multilingual, I have been blessed to work with multicultural populations from different economic and social backgrounds.

Other than working with Health Canada, I am also registered with the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP), ICBC, Extended health care insurance companies, and the Aboriginal Association of First Nations. You are most welcome to contact me if you have any of these coverages. 

I look forward to hearing from you and starting to work with you.  

Thank you for being here,
