To my former clients:
Earlier this year, I made the decision to close my private counselling practice, effective January 31, 2018.
I am no longer accepting new clients at this time. Former clients seeking a follow-up appointment or counselling support on a short-term, limited basis, are invited to call or email me directly until December 22, 2017. After that time, my work will be limited to my current clients.
If you wish to seek counselling or psychotherapy services from a new therapist, here are some resources for you to consider:
You can also contact BCACC and CCPA by phone for assistance with finding an appropriate counsellor / therapist.
You may also wish to contact my partner Carly Dobson (see bio above) whose counselling office is located in Coquitlam, BC. Carly’s contact information is found on our website here.
Former clients wishing to discuss a more specific referral are invited to call or email me directly.
Records: Storage, Retention, Disposal and Access
Your clinical records are and will remain confidential. Following the closing of my practice, I will continue to store them in a safe, secure location at my former office for a period of seven years from the last date I had contact with you. After that seven-year period has ended, I will dispose of the records in a way that maintains their confidentiality, i.e. by shredding.
Should you require a copy of all or a portion of your records during that seven-year period, you may access them by contacting me at my Fairview email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you during my years in practice and wish you all the best for the future,
