Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all counselling sessions have moved to phone and video. If you are interested in going on my waiting list for a phone or video session, please be in touch to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation. I am not offering in-person consultations at this time.
I currently have two waiting lists: one for phone/video sessions and another wait list for office sessions. Due to the pandemic, as well as the number of referrals I receive, wait times are unpredictable and as of June 2020, my best estimate is 2-4 months for phone/video sessions and 4-6 months for in-person sessions. Some clients have an earlier start by going on my cancellation list.
Estimated date of return to my downtown Vancouver office is July 1st but will depend on directives from the provincial health officer as well as the ability to ensure a safe and functional office environment for clients.
Please note, my evening-session waiting list is closed.
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, Monday to Friday. 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 during daytime hours, usually mid-day. As the amount of requests for 15-minute consultations varies from week to week, the timeline of availability can range from 1 day to 2 weeks.
Thank you for your interest in my counselling services and I look forward to meeting you!

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.
