I am the only person with access to my phone & emails.
To protect privacy, I chose an email address that does not reference counselling and allows me to send password protected/encrypted emails.
Mental health emergencies (like considering hurting yourself or others) need immediate attention.
Please do not text, email or leave a voicemail in an emergency. I may not get your message in time to help.
PIease visit an emergency room or call 911, a trusted relative or friend or a crisis line (1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-784-2433 is available 24/7/365 in BC).
Please contact me after you receive emergency care.
Your Communication Preferences
Some people want to pick up the phone and get answers right away.
Other people prefer to receive some information by text or email before speaking to someone. I'm happy to answer a few initial questions and take it from there. I don't pressure people to book appointments. It's not helpful. For you or me.
The First Time We Speak
The first time we speak is a chance for you to get a sense of what it would be like to work together and for me to confirm that I could provide appropriate support.
You can ask me any questions about career counselling or me. I'll ask you a few questions about what's going on and tell you a bit about the supports I provide.
At the end of the call, 3 things can happen:
If you're unsure about moving forward, you can decide to take some time to think
If I don't think I can provide appropriate support, I'll suggest some resources
If we decide to work together on the spot, we can book a first appointment.
I get back to people within 24 hours.
