Counselling for Front Line Mental Health and Community Workers
Do you find yourself hiding what’s really going on for you?
Front Line Mental Health and Community Workers often carry large client caseloads, work in systems that conflict with personal values, and often have complex high risk clients.
Many of us feel:
- stuck with negative thoughts and energy
- self doubt, second guessing our work capabilities
- angry, anxious and/or fatigued
- struggling to cope at home and work
- sleep deprived
- an increase in social isolation
- a distancing from intimate relationships
- that we need more support than we are getting
Now might be a good time to reach out. My hope is that you not stay silent and instead place importance on the quality of your own mental health. I provide a safe, non-judgemental, and supportive therapeutic space where we can replenish self-compassion and affirm the importance of focusing on what matters the most.
I see counsellors, social workers, practicum students, doctors, transition house workers, and other community workers.
Our process begins with a 20-30 minute phone intake. Here you have the chance to ask questions, discuss scheduling, and administrative details. Appointments are either over the phone or on a virtual secure platform.
Fees for counselling may be covered by your extended health insurance. Please check with your provider to confirm coverage of services by a Registered Clinical Counsellor. I am a member in good standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors. Fees for service are generally in line with average rates for counsellors in BC.
If my regular rates present a challenge for you, I invite you to speak with me.
