Take Your Next Step With Confidence

You want a counsellor you know you’ll work well with.

The most common factor in the effectiveness in therapy is not the education of the counsellor, or even the theories that they practice, rather it’s the relationship between the client and their counsellor. Choosing a counsellor who is a right fit for you is an integral first step toward the change you want to make. With there being such a vast amount of counsellors in the lower mainland, each with their own unique approach, It could be a costly and disheartening process seeing someone for a full session or two, only to determine they just don’t fit for you. Then it’s back to square one. I want you to feel confident, even before our first counselling session. And by consulting with you beforehand, I want to ensure that I also feel as though my expertise is a match for you.

That’s why I offer you a free 15-minute consult via phone or skype
