My wait list is for new clients who would like to book a counselling session. I’m sorry I can’t offer you an immediate appointment. There is currently no wait list for phone counselling or clinical supervision.
I have a cancellation list too, if you would like to take advantage of last-minute openings. 70-80% of new clients get started from my cancellation list. It is often the fastest route to a first appointment, particularly if you have good daytime availability and regular access to your emails.
Once submitted, you will receive a confirmation email that you have been added to my wait list and/or cancellation list.
Your privacy is important to me and your personal information will not be shared or used for any other purpose other than contacting you when I have an opening to offer you. Please add the Willow Tree email to your contacts, if you wish to receive notifications from me, particularly if you have also selected to be added to my cancellation list. The form is submitted securely through an encrypted connection.
Registering for my waiting list secures your place in line when it comes to starting your counselling journey. When your name comes up, I get in touch and I don’t contact you before that time, unless you have also registered for my cancellation list.
The length of my waiting list varies. Check out my FAQ to get a current time estimate, or contact me!
You can remove yourself at any time by getting in touch with me. I remove your name as soon as I get your message and I don’t contact you further. No questions asked!
My cancellation list is for those who want to take advantage of last-minute cancellations that come up. These are openings that none of my current clients can take and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
I typically send out 0-4 email cancellation notifications a week, so if you are a person that dislikes email, I recommend the waiting list only. You can also remove yourself from the cancellation list at any time but remain on the waiting list, by clarifying that in an email to me.
To remove yourself from my cancellation list, simply click on the unsubscribe link in any cancellation notification email that you have received from me.
If you decide you want off of my cancellation list but would like to remain on my waiting list, please let me know, since unsubscribing from my cancellation list will also remove you from my waiting list.
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.
For urgent mental health and addictions concerns, Vancouver residents can contact the Access and Assessment Centre at Vancouver Hospital, available 24/7.
