Are you looking for Counselling in Vancouver?
Here’s how I help
I opened my private counselling practice after 15 years of working and studying as a counsellor in healthcare and university settings. I offer a counselling relationship that will help you get unstuck and move forward. My clients tell me I’m pretty down-to-earth, kind and gentle, non-judgmental, and that, with me, they feel that they’re “not crazy.” Even at the end of the first session, clients will say what a relief it is to feel safe, understood, more hopeful, and not alone. Together, we’ll figure out what your goals are and work towards them at your pace.
The decision to look for a counsellor often comes at a time of crisis, or when you feel all other avenues have been exhausted. But, it’s never too late to start counselling. And, decades of research tells us that counselling effective and beneficial, so positive change is absolutely possible. I’m here for you, as you take this next step.
New to counselling? Here’s what to expect.
After you contact me, we’ll talk by phone for about 15 minutes (at no charge to you) so that I can find out more about your situation and what you’d like help with. This call will also help us figure out if I’m the right counsellor for you. By the end of the call, if you decide you’d like to set up an appointment, we’ll schedule that. If either you or I feel that I am not the best person to help you, I’ll give you some names of other counsellors who might be a better fit.
The initial session is for exploring the specifics of your situation in more detail, and for us to get a growing sense of whether I’m a good fit for you. By the end of this session, you should feel that I “get” what you’re going through. We’ll have a good handle on what you want, and I’ll make suggestions about how I think we can get there.
