LGBTQ+ Issues

I consider myself an ally when it comes to members of the LGBTQ+ communities. Clients who attend my downtown Vancouver counselling and psychotherapy office tell me that I am a counsellor who helps them feel comfortable and at ease. They understand that they can talk without being judged and that I will listen. I provide therapy for clients with a variety of life concerns, including:

GLBTQ+ clients also come to Willow Tree Counselling for help with:

  • Questioning
  • Coming out (including “late” coming out)
  • Transgender issues
  • Asexuality
  • Homophobia / biphobia / transphobia
  • Body image issues / eating disorders
  • Rejection and discrimination by family, friends, employers and others
  • Isolation and small town upbringings
  • Polyamorous or open relationships
  • Marriage / long-term partnerships
  • Domestic violence
  • Aging
  • Grief and loss
  • HIV issues / sexual health

If you are seeking unconditional acceptance and respect, strict confidentiality, a collaborative counselling approach, a calming office environment, and over a decade of experience helping clients who self-identify as either gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit, asexual, questioning, non-binary, queer or genderqueer, you have come to the right place! I encourage you to contact me for a free 15 minute telephone consultation to ask questions and determine whether I am a good fit for you. I look forward to hearing from you!
