If you are calling by telephone, during regular office hours (8:30am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday), you will most likely reach my receptionist. She will be able answer any general questions and can schedule appointments. If you wish to speak to me directly I will return your call as soon as possible. More detailed messages can be left on my confidential voice mailbox.
If your call is urgent please state this at the time of contact and I will do my best to respond immediately. Be sure to leave a voice mail message, with the best phone number, if you require a call back about booking an appointment. If you have any concerns regarding confidentiality please include these limitations with your message.
Location My practise is situated in the Oceanview Executive Centre on the second floor of the Old City Square building.The executive centre is home to a variety of other businesses, so your confidentiality can be more easily maintained.
The building is on a one way street just off Fitzwilliam Street. There is ample free parking at street level. Three stairways lead to the second floor and wheelchair access can be made available by advance arrangement. For further details and directions please call to speak with the office receptionist.
Availability My office hours are flexible. As I am a sole occupant in my office I can offer a varied schedule. Evening appointments are available but do fill quickly. I recognize that it can be particularly difficult for busy couples to coordinate their schedules. Once we agree on a time that works for you I can book your sessions in advance. In this way I can secure a consistent appointment time for you.
Although weekly or bi-weekly visits are standard, at least at the beginning of therapy, this can be a challenge for some clients. In cases involving shift work or periods out of town I can adjust your counselling session schedule to suit your unique situation. I can, on occasion, make myself available for home or hospital visits. This accommodation is made on an as needed basis and must be arranged with me directly.
I will work with you and your schedule to the best of my abilities. My goal is to make this sometimes challenging experience as accessible as possible.
