Due to the current COVID-19 situation, most counselling sessions have moved to phone and video, with only limited in-person availability.  If you are interested in going on my waiting list for a phone, video or in-person session, please be in touch to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation. I am not offering in-person consultations at this time.

Due to the pandemic, as well as the number of referrals I receive, wait times are unpredictable and as of January 2021, my best estimate is 6-8 months for phone, video and in-person sessions. Some clients have an earlier start by going on my cancellation list.

Please note, my evening-session waiting list is closed.

Why Waiting Lists?

The first step is to sign up for a free 15-minute consultation (currently, phone only) to see if we are a good therapeutic fit. If so, I will add you to my wait list. My appointment openings are in the daytime on weekdays. If you are available for last-minute appointments, those opportunities come up from time to time.

To book an introductory consultation, please complete the form below and I will get back to you within 48 hours, Tuesdays through Fridays. To arrange scheduling for your consultation, I will reply to you by email. If you would prefer a phone reply, please do not fill out this form, call me at 604-521-3404 to leave a message. Please note that all 15-minute consultations are held once a week during daytime hours on rotating days of the week. I am currently booking 15-minute consultations 3-4 weeks in advance.

Thank you for your interest in my counselling services and I look forward to meeting you!

Urgent Appointments and Other Options

If you are requiring a counselling appointment on an urgent basis, I encourage you to search for a counsellor with timely availability. I typically suggest that you ask a trusted friend, family member or health professional for a recommendation. CounsellingBC.com also has the most comprehensive directory of private counsellors in Metro Vancouver. To find a BIPOC therapist, check out the Healing in Colour Directory.

For urgent mental health and addictions concerns, Vancouver residents can contact the Access and Assessment Centre at Vancouver Hospital, 7:30am-11pm. 1-800-SUICIDE, is available to take your call 24/7, for all residents of BC.
