As of December 1st all counselling sessions will be held online. I am doing my very best to continue to support my clients. Many of my clients are either pregnant, have newborn babies, or are otherwise vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus. Due to the increased risk of these clients, the safest option is to move our sessions online for now. 

Covid-19 Safety Plan

Please read through these important safety procedures before your upcoming in-person session: 

Cleaning and Hygiene 

  • Please use the hand sanitizer directly at the entrance of my office upon arrival to your appointment.    

  • I am washing my hands before and after each session, and using sanitizer in between if we have touched any mutual surfaces or objects.  

  • I am sanitizing surfaces after every session, including washrooms, pens, tables, my desk, light switches, and door handles. 

  • Please bring your own water bottle, coffee, tea as I am not able to provide beverages at this time. 

  • Payment is done online through my Jane booking software.

Maintaining Physical Distance 

  • Please do not come into the office if you are feeling sick, have traveled or have been exposed. You must be aware of the symptoms and answer 'no' to all questions posted on my office door before entering. 

  • I am happy to rearrange our session or shift to an online or phone session should you be concerned about your health or any possible exposure you may have had. Please exercise your social responsibility. 

  • Please arrive on time or wait outside the building before your appointment to eliminate time spent in shared spaces. Masks must be worn in common spaces of the building before or after your session.

  • I am continuing to uphold the 2-meter rule. We must be vigilant about maintaining social distance in the office. Chairs are set up to be the appropriate distance apart. 

  • I am staggering appointments to reduce number of people in the space at one time. 

Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions or concerns about the above procedures, please contact me directly. 

Thank you! 


I am honoured to live and work on the traditional unceded territories of the Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam, and Squamish Nations.
