Rob Matula

Registered Clinical Counsellor

It is a sincere pleasure to walk alongside my clients on their journey toward emotional health and wellness. While having gone through twists and turns in my own life, I’ve discovered I have a passion to reach out, validate, and become the support system that makes a difference in other people’s lives.
Today I am committed to serving my clients, believing in their innate capacity to heal from their past wounds, offering a safe affirming environment with an end goal of adding strength and courage for them to tackle and grab a hold of the elusive happiness that has escaped them.
I strongly believe that the relationship between therapist and client is the key healing agent; therefore, I take time in my sessions to create a safe, affirming bond. My goal is to listen keenly, allowing my clients to feel safe to openly express what is authentically going on for them, and, in the process, discover their core issues and start the healing process.
In my clinical practice, I work with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues, along with career and vocational transition. I am particularly interested in working with clients of all ages, dealing with the effects of trauma, who are often struggling with PTSD. I take an attachment-oriented approach in my work, by enabling clients to resolve traumatic experiences for themselves through a safe therapeutic relationship. When working with clients, I often utilize experiential modalities such as emotion-focused therapy and gestalt therapy.
I have worked in several clinical settings including Trinity Western University, Simon Fraser University, and Columbia Bible College. As a result, I have extensive experience working with young adults.
I am a registered clinical counsellor and a graduate of Trinity Western University with an M.A. in counselling psychology.


In this world of chaos and confusion, Rob is the calm voice of clarity. No matter how stressful your relationships, or how complex your history, he will patiently work with you to untangle and resolve your sources of pain. When he does provide observations or suggestions, he will always express them with kindness!
