Counselling During Covid-19
I am accepting referrals of new clients and continuing to meet with existing clients.
Counselling sessions will take place either remotely or in person.
Remote meetings ( via Zoom a secure web based platform or via telephone) during this time of social distancing as we all get behind efforts to flatten the curve.
Please reach out if you would like to meet in person as this is an available option. If you are feeling unwell, we are able to switch over to a virtual setting with short notice.
Now more than ever it is essential that people receive the emotional and psychological support they need to safeguard their mental health. I can provide mental health support safely using one of these modalities.
To make a referral or to schedule an appointment email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 250 812-1568.
