To Our Valued Community,
These are difficult times and I want you to know that I am here for you. Having been a part of the team for 2 years I have come to know many of the clients that walk through the doors. I feel for all of you and want you to know that should you need support I am still available. I have moved to providing sessions via video or phone. The service is provided over a secure online platform.
I will continue to take on new clients. If you would like to schedule an appointment please contact me by phone at 604-854-0802 or email at [email protected].
I understand that it may be difficult to be vulnerable over a virtual session. It is not easy when we are not face to face. We do know that virtual counselling can still be an effective form of therapy. Here are a few suggestions to make this experience more comfortable for you:
- Have a cup of coffee or tea during the session.
- Be in comfortable clothing, have a blanket, put on slippers, etc.
- Be in a comfortable spot in the house and away from distractions (if possible).
- Have a grounding item available.
Lastly, I know that this can be a difficult time financially for many of you. I do not want that to be a barrier to receiving counselling. I can offer services at a reduced rate to those who may require it. I ask that anyone that can afford to pay the full-rate continue to do so. This helps those with financial barriers have access to much needed services.
If you have any questions about my services please do not hesitate to contact me.
My thoughts are with all of you,
Kristi Brink, MSW, RSW, RCC
