We’re here to help
On a daily basis, we negotiate relationships with others, with our surroundings, and with ourselves. Sometimes our ability to function and thrive within these dynamic relationships can become stressed and our relationships can become problematic.
ProChoices Community Therapy Clinic offers you support in the face of challenges like these and engages a therapeutic collaboration that cultivates possibility, choice, and preferred outcomes.
You do not need doctor referrals to access our services.

The minimum donation per session is $20.00. At this time, our clinic accepts cash donation only. We welcome and appreciate any increased donations, as they allow us to hold the clinic space and make quality and low barrier counselling services available to more people in our community.
We also offer the opportunity for clients to work with ProChoices Grad Therapists. If you are someone who can afford to pay $60, you are allying with community members who can only afford to pay $20 to access therapy. The sixty dollars will allow us to offer a small payment for the therapist and support the nourishment of the ProChoices learning community. Check out this page for more details.
Our Therapy Model
ProChoices offers a safe and non-judgmental space. Our work is closely aligned with Feminist Narrative ethics and worldview. The Feminist Narrative approach means our therapists will be inquiring rather than assuming, and de-centering power through a collaborative relationship where the client is acknowledged as the expert of their own experience. We recognize that the person is not the problem, rather the problem is the problem. Through our commitment to Feminist Narrative therapy, our practice is informed by an overall worldview that is attuned to social justice.
Working with us
ProChoices operates as a collective learning environment for the practice of Feminist Narrative Therapy. Our Learning therapists come from many walks of life and varying backgrounds. To uphold and honor our values and worldview, we do not match clients and therapist according to gender, race, sexual orientation, personal preference, speciality etc. All matches are determined based on schedule availability only. We are an inclusive organization that is sensitive around our clients’ comfort and safety, and we welcome feedback.
All are welcome! ProChoices welcomes clients from all walks of life, genders, sexualities, races, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, classes, religions etc.
As learning clinic with limited resources, there are several areas we are unable to work with at this time. If you are experiencing any of the following problems, we encourage you to contact the Vancouver Crisis Line (604-872-3311), your local emergency services, and/or 911 for support options.
- Physical violence
- Active suicidal behaviour or ideation
