With the overwhelming number of Vancouver-area counsellors available, how do you find a counsellor who is right for you?  This is a critical, yet often daunting question. This is why I offer reserved time each week to meet or talk with me before committing (or not committing) to counselling with me. This free 15-minute consultation is available in person or by phone.
Finding A Therapist

My view of therapy is that the relationship between client and counsellor is the most important factor in determining the success of your therapy experience.  The research backs this up too.  Some say that it’s a therapist’s method or training that makes the difference.  While these are important factors, what difference does a particular counselling method make if you can’t get along with the person who is trying to help you?

Because of the value I place on the importance of a good therapeutic fit, I encourage you to contact me to set up your complementary 15-minute consultation before a first counselling appointment. If you have signed up for my waiting list and we have not yet spoken when your name comes up, I will be in touch with you by email to set up a time to talk first.

Digging Deeper: Understanding Therapeutic Fit

A consultation is your opportunity to ask me any counselling-related question to better help you make an informed decision about therapy, including helping you to determine whether I am the right counsellor for you.  Coming prepared with some questions can help you get more out of your consultation. This time is also a chance for you to experience my office space and see whether you feel comfortable there.

How to Get the Most Out of a Counselling Consultation

These are truly no-obligation consultations!  I believe that there is no one perfect therapist for everyone.  I also really enjoy the experience of meeting new people and responding to your questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!
