Welcome To Thrive Downtown Counselling Centre
Proudly serving the Vancouver community with professional mental health counselling services.
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Thrive Counselling Centre is a sanctuary for mental health healing and growth, established in 2014 by Dace Mars and Carson Kivari. The centre, staffed by compassionate counsellors and therapists, promotes authentic self-expression and provides help for those dealing with mental health concerns seeking more than just relief from symptoms.
Using an integration of practical neuroscience, contemporary trauma theory, and traditional and shamanic medicine approaches, Thrive offers clarity and relief for those experiencing pain and the unhappiness of feeling lost in life.
Clinical Director Carson specialises in complex trauma therapy, while Spiritual Director Dace explores the broader process of human well-being beyond surface symptoms. Reinvented in 2019, Thrive has trained multiple practitioners who embody kindness, care, and connection.
The centre offers a unique integration of modern trauma recovery methods and timeless spiritual paths, providing a sincere and hopeful environment for those struggling with mental health concerns.
It is a space for those who wish to go beyond ‘fixing what hurts’ and evolving towards a higher path of self-discovery. Consultation at Thrive can be a transformative experience, offering relief from struggle and a compassionate approach to personal concerns.
