My name is Jody Rambold, M.A. (#19219), I am a professional member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors offering virtual sessions based out of Victoria, BC. Additionally, I am a provider approved to treat ICBC customers who experience psychological injuries after a car crash using ICBC claims.
I was born and grew up on Vancouver Island and Victoria. I received a Bachelor of Social Work from the
University of Victoria in 2004 and have worked in Mental Health and Substance Use for the past 14 years. I
went on to graduate with a Master’s in Counselling from City University of Seattle in 2021. I love working in
the Mental Health field and have a passion for helping others heal and find happiness and purpose in their lives.
I offer virtual adult individual and couples counselling throughout British Columbia. I practice from a social
justice, strengths-based, trauma-informed, person-centered relational style. This means that I believe that my
clients are the experts of their lives and I use this as a guide in our work together. I draw on concepts from
several modalities such as Cognitive-Behavioural, Narrative, Solution-Focused and Emotion-focused therapies.
For Couples counselling I primarily use the Gottman Method which is a model rooted in over 40 years of
research. It is a skills-based, communication-focused model which includes take home information and easy to implement interventions that couples can use on their own. In addition to this, I also utilize Emotion-focused and attachment-based modalities.
In addition to a generalist counselling practice, I offer trauma counselling with specialized training in Somatic Attachment Psychotherapy. This means that I use the body, and the counselling relationship as a guide through the counselling process. This is done through attention to emotions, gestures, and sensations in the body throughout the counselling session.
Working in this way helps to restore emotional self-regulation and resilience allowing greater capacity for presence in the body. In addition, this style builds awareness of our relational style and how we function in relationships through using an attachment focus. This model borrows concepts from Attachment Theory, Polyvagal Theory, and Interpersonal Neurobiology. As a trauma and relationship therapist, I am passionate about helping people build robust, fulfilling lives through healthy relationships.
The issues that I can help with include:
Grief and Loss
In our sessions together, I provide an attuned, nonjudgmental nurturing, and empathetic space for you, the focus
of our time together will be on building relationship, trust, and safety, going slowly, allowing space to process,
to build awareness and connection to yourself.
I invite you to contact me for a complimentary consultation to see if we are a good therapeutic fit.
