Concerned about a Waiting List? It’s okay! While Annette does have a waiting list she regularly keeps time available each week for new clients. Get started by checking available appointments in Annette’s booking software. It’s so easy! Don’t be discouraged if there aren’t any immediately available appointments. Go ahead and add yourself to the Waiting List. If you are flexible, the wait time is minimal. If your concern is urgent, please connect using the contact form. Email messages are private and go directly to Annette.

Psychotherapy and personal counselling are important for mental health and well-being and can offer emotional insight, decreased emotional distress, coping skills, validation, healing from past trauma, and improved relationships. How can Annette help you today? Listening. Guiding. Caring.
