Marshall & Associates Profile
Established in 1988, we were the first full time private counselling clinic in Nanaimo. Before long, clients were traveling to our office from other communities on Vancouver Island for psychological help.
Our extensive clinical experience and depth of professional training is key to the services we provide. The core of our practice: a strong commitment to ethics and our belief in peoples’ ability to become their best selves. With confidence in our skills, we support your journey to mental health, working in a non-intrusive way that respects and develops your best abilities and resources. Our success is measured in the tremendous change our clients accomplish as they work with us.
Clients can self-refer and pay on a fee-for-service basis. We act as local provider for a number of Employee and Family Assistance Programs and also have relationships with numerous organizations on a pre-arranged billing basis.
Family physicians from many communities on Vancouver Island refer their patients to our office for assistance with depression and anxiety, addictions counselling including alcohol and drug misuse and sexual addiction, stress counselling, marital and family therapy and parenting training and support.
