Co-Parenting in Conflict and Divorce

Whether everybody is under one roof or three, let's make a plan together to agree on what is best for the kids. I will partner with you in maintaining accountability and keeping on track
Online Counselling (Skype, Phone, Zoom)
Online Counselling (50-80 min)
Having a hard time leaving the house? Stuck at the office? Sometimes it simply makes more sense to do a session online. We're set up for Skype, Zoom, Messenger, and telephone sessions.
Making and Managing Bookings
Making bookings is easy! We use an online bookings system that is confidential and secure and it even sends reminders by email and text if you like.
You can book, view, change, or cancel existing sessions. You pick how often and when. But remember... we do often fill up well in advance, so consider booking extra sessions ahead and cancel if you end up not needing them.
*We've found that it works best to put clients in charge of booking their sessions (unless folks aren't comfortable with technology and wish to book in person).
Our comfortable offices are located in downtown Nanaimo, with free parking (based on availability). You'll find us a few doors up from the Vault coffeeshop on Wallace Street. Our building number is 477 Wallace, and we're on the third floor in offices 309 and 310. We look forward to seeing you here!
