To Our Valued Clients: Re – Covid19

As you know, concerns have been expressed about the recent spread of Covid-19.  As Richmond Counselling is located in a healthcare facility, we have discussed how best to respond to this challenge.

Continuing Your Care:

 *UPDATE November 7, 2022*  At the present moment, in-person sessions are available with Irina Della Rossa, CCC (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only), Sheri Poulsen, RCC, Giulia Santaca, RCC and Jamie Whitehead, RCC. Upon booking, kindly state which option suits you best. All other clinicians are offering virtual counselling only.

Your well-being is of our upmost concern, both physically and psychologically.  As the current outbreak is affecting the ability of people to come to our office for sessions, we are offering a choice of phone or video sessions through the use of the Zoom Videoconferencing App (computers, iPhones, and Android smartphones can download at or on the AppStore / Google Play Store)

Instructions on how to use Zoom can be found here:

Phone sessions are also available for those who are uncomfortable with technology. Please just let us know what form of communication works best for you so that we know how best to help care for you at this time.  604-279-8992 or [email protected]

We appreciate your openness, diligence and patience at this difficult time.

With appreciation and care,
