Our counselling team

Our professionally trained therapists and counsellors have graduate degrees in clinical social work and counselling psychology. We continue to strive for professional excellence, staying on top of best practices and the latest developments in the field of individual and family therapy. Regular supervision is part of our practice. Confidentiality is strictly maintained in all cases.

We have staff who can work with you in Cantonese, Korean, Mandarin, and Spanish.


Our program is designed to ensure that everyone who needs counselling gets counselling. Fees for service are charged on a sliding scale based on household income. FSGV is a non-profit organization and fees are required to supplement the funding we receive for these services.

For those who don’t qualify for subsidy, fees are $120 for individuals and $125 for couples/families per 50 minute session. View fee schedule here.
