We seek help when we’re stuck, in pain, lost, adrift, unsatisfied. Or we want something different, fuller, more textured in our lives.

Therapy is one kind of help.

If this is your first time coming for therapy, welcome.

If you have worked previously with other counsellors or therapists, welcome.

If you are a therapist yourself and wish to work further on your own issues, welcome.

Together we will build a safe enough place for you to tackle the difficult, the painful or the stuck places in your life.

You can reach me by phone: 604.221.9053. Feel free to leave a message at anytime. You are welcome to email me at shari@sharibender.ca.
I am happy to speak with you by phone or email if you have some questions and would like further information before deciding to book an appointment.


My current fee is $200.00 an hour payable by cash, cheque or e-Transfer at the end of the session. I will issue a receipt. Since I am a Registered Psychologist, you may be able to have some portion or all of the session reimbursed if you have extended health coverage. Check the details of your extended health plan.
If you miss or change an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, the full fee is due.


That’s it for now!
