Due to sessions with other clients, we are sometimes unable to answer calls immediately. Leave a detailed message in our confidential voicemail and we will return your call as soon as possible. Please indicate in your message any sensitivities regarding when and where calls should be returned. All inquiries are, of course, kept strictly confidential.

For cyclists, there is a bike locker room in the underground parking area.
Please email me for the passcode to the bike locker.

I respect the sensitive and confidential nature of counselling. My office allows for a very high degree of privacy as clients may enter and exit from separate doors as not to be seen by others in the waiting area. The office building is occupied by other professionals (legal, medical, etc.) and is generally quiet with a low level of foot-traffic. The office building itself has several layers of security including on-site security personnel.
I strive to make your counselling session as comfortable and safe as possible.
