Here is the idea of the initiative I have started for the employees of organizations on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES):

Having spent two years volunteering in the area, I was able to see many types of jobs being done at a few different locations in the community. Currently, what I’ve done, is created a community collaborative where staff from the DTES organizations can come and receive affordable counselling/therapy services.

If you work on the DTES, then you know how much energy and caring support you give on a daily basis! I am here to help you work through tough times and anything that might still be bothering you from your past. Being healthy yourself is the best way to help others.

I can help with:

  • stress
  • self-care
  • trauma
  • secondary trauma
  • grief & loss
  • and much more..

The fees I charge are very competitive, which is due to the research I did looking into the hourly wages that are received. I also offer a free 15-minute consultation, either in-person or over the phone. Please call me for further details.

My schedule and locations of when and where I am on the DTES are as follows:

  • Mondays @ First United from 10-6
  • Wednesdays @ Vancouver Native Health Society from 10-4
  • Thursdays @ The Living Room from 10-6

If one of these days or the times don’t work for you, please call or email me. You have options and I am willing to be flexible. There is also the option of meeting me at my W. Broadway office.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me via email: leanne@ldcounselling.ca or by phone 778-323-8948.
