Initial Consultation (20 minutes) is free with a donation to the Shelbourne Community Kitchen. This consultation can be done either by phone or in person.

In Office session - 50 minutes; $120.00

Walk and Talk session - 50 minutes; $120.00. Think better when you walk? Find nature to be therapeutic? Feel like you need to add more exercise into your routine? This may be the perfect way to do it. Following the initial consultation “walk and talk” appointments are available for those that would like to meet out of office. Maybe you have a favorite park, beach or trail? Lauren is able to meet you in an agreed upon location of your choice. “Walk and talk” appointments are available outside of standard business hours including evenings and weekends

Online Counselling session - 50 minutes; $120.00. Online counselling, and in this case video counselling, can be an excellent option for many people. Online counselling can offer both convenience and therapeutic benefits over traditional face to face counselling sessions. However, online counselling is not for everyone. I encourage you to take a look at this video to get a better understanding of how online counselling may work for you. If you have questions about it or would like to try a free 20 minute initial consultation please contact Lauren at 778.533.8834 or If you would like to book online you can do so here:
