In Person Appointments

After careful consideration of the state of the Covid19 pandemic in British Columbia, Conflict Options has restarted in-person sessions by request only.  Masks are mandatory as per the Public Health Orders.

Virtual sessions are available and are encouraged. We are taking the following steps to ensure maximum client and practitioner safety: 

  • Masks must be worn by all participants
  • Frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces
  • Increased time between appointments to allow for adequate cleaning
  • Seating arranged so that client and therapist are not in close proximity during appointments
  • Clients are asked to not arrive before their appointment time so as to avoid multiple families in the waiting room
  • Virtual appointments are available and encouraged

*Important: Please bring your completed INFORMED CONSENT FOR IN-PERSON SERVICES DURING COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS form to your first in-person appointment.
