I meet with clients in-office and by phone, Zoom and Skype: 

In-office location:
My office is located in suite #1405, 675 West Hastings Street, Vancouver BC, on the northeast corner of Granville Street and Hastings in the beautiful heritage Art Deco Royal Bank Tower.

In-office session times:
Mondays: 3 pm to 9 pm
Tuesdays: 3 pm to 9 pm
Wednesdays: 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Thursdays: 8 am to 4:30 pm

Phone, Zoom and Skype:
Many clients prefer to meet by phone, by Zoom and by Skype because it is convenient.  These sessions can be scheduled outside the in-office session times listed above.  I meet with clients located in different regions of BC including Victoria, central, and northern Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and central and northern BC. I also meet with clients in different regions in Canada and with local clients who want to continue with sessions while travelling. And it is possible to cycle between phone and in-office sessions as best suits your schedule or location.

I am trained to work with clients over the phone and through platforms such as Zoom and Skype. Many clients let me know they prefer it. They often discover they are able to focus and concentrate better, without any distractions. As I ask the powerful questions, clients dig deep into thought and discover fresh perspective while feeling safe and supported. Visualizations are vivid and dynamic.  Meeting by phone or on Zoom or Skype is truly an optimal way to engage in highly effective sessions that facilitate meaningful exploration, breakthroughs and progress.
