“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”       -Helen Keller

During these difficult times due to COVID-19, I am still offering counselling sessions via phone, video call or in person at a physical distance (walk and talk).

ABOUT ME

 
Welcome!

My name is Lisa Rickli, and I am a professional counsellor working in Whistler, British Columbia. During my 10-year career in human resources, I realized that I enjoy helping and supporting people. I learned that I connect with people easily and create mutual trust quickly. I often had staff—some who didn’t know me well—come to speak with me about issues or challenges they were having at work or in their personal lives. This started me thinking about how I could provide more support to people. That curiosity led me back to school to complete my Professional Counselling Diploma, Youth and Family Certificate, and Counselling for Intimacy in Relationships Certificate.

I currently volunteer for the RCMP’s Victim Services program, which supports people who have experienced a traumatic event. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity to support people who access this program.

I came to Whistler to work one winter, and like many, I fell in love with the environment, community and the people. After 22 years of living here, I still feel grateful to be able to live in such a beautiful place with my husband and son. I enjoy cross country and downhill skiing, trail running and biking. My family and I enjoy many of the outdoor activities together; for us, it is a great way to connect and talk.

I provide compassionate, empathic, warm and inclusive counselling services for youth, adults, couples and families.

I believe that we are all faced with challenges during different times in our lives and finding the right support to navigate those challenges can make a big difference. I see counselling as a tool for enhancing one’s mental and emotional health, as well as growth and resilience.
