And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful 

than the risk it took to blossom (Anais Nin)                                                           ​      

COVID-19 Update

 With all the chaos in the world right now, we are faced with some stressful and trying times. My office is still open to see clients, and I want to reassure you that we are following the appropriate safety and prevention policies, such as disinfecting between clients and rescheduling anyone who has any signs or symptoms of illness. I am also waiving my late cancellation fee, in order to encourage those who are ill to call or email in to reschedule their appointments. In addition, I am currently offering some telepsychology options (counselling via phone or video) to meet the needs of my clients while they are ill or social distancing. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns - stay safe and healthy!
