I founded Willow Tree Counselling after over a decade of work in public practice. At my downtown Vancouver counselling and psychotherapy office, I strive to cultivate a therapy space that is safe for all genders, races, cultures, bodies, sexual orientations, family constellations and relationships.
I am told that because of my open nature and kind, gentle way with people, clients trust that I can help without judgment. Listening to my clients’ personal stories is both an honour and a privilege; feeling heard and understood is often their first significant step towards change.
Sorry, I do not have immediate availability for accepting new clients and I am not currently adding to my waiting list. Previous clients, please be in touch. I anticipate re-opening my waiting list in late Spring.

I revisit this topic 12 years later and in the process learn that teaching others how to find a therapist and finding one myself are two very different experiences.
Counsellors have their own life issues: it’s part of being human. What does this mean for counselling clients?
The normalization of therapy in our society, including “proactive therapy,” is all good, right? Yes! (mostly).
