Sessions

Getting started

I aim to give you the most flexibility possible, to make counselling as convenient as possible. Sessions are available both online and in-person. I hold sessions afternoons, evenings and weekends, with easy scheduling through my online booking platform. You’re welcome to book a first session, or to schedule a consult to decide whether I’m a fit for you.

For in-person sessions, my office is located in the old MEC building between Main and Cambie, at 2520 Columbia Street.

When it’s time for your session

Transit and parking

You can bring your bike inside, or park it by the front door. There are bus stops within a 30-second walk (served by 009 and the 99 B-Line). There is paid parking on the street, and on the roof. Driving is surprisingly easy during the Broadway Subway construction.

The building

The building is controlled-entry. If you’re late, please ring the doorbell marked “Fieldwork.” I will usually be waiting by the door a few minutes before your scheduled appointment time, but sometimes will be there closer to the appointment time.

Accessibility

Please let me know if you use mobility enhancements prior to our first session. The building is equipped with an elevator, and handholds in the bathrooms. The doors are not automated.

Online sessions

You will receive an email about one hour before your session starts. No downloads are required unless you are connecting from an iPhone/iPad. Consider connecting a few minutes early to test your mic and camera.

If you’re late

Safety first! If you’re late, try not to rush. Just ring the doorbell for an in-person session, or log on for an online session. We’ll make use of the time we have remaining. Note that the full session fee still applies.

Cancellations

I require 24-hours’ notice for cancellations. The full session fee will be charged for sessions with less notice. As an alternative to cancelling, you can switch an in-person session to online — just email me to make this change.
