Meet Tony Ho, MSW, RSW

I have over a decade of experience in community-based counselling and therapy, helping people with day-to-day struggles to addressing complex mental health and addiction issues.

 

Together, I can help you resolve your insomnia so you can start feeling, thinking, and performing your best again. We can tackle stigma and shame, improve the quality and effectiveness of relationships, or help you find relief from anxiety and depression to be more present and engaged in your life.

 

My approach to counselling and therapy is research-backed, focused on strengths, and profoundly hopeful. I also identify as a member of the LBGTQ+ community and welcome all genders and orientations in my diverse and affirming practice.

Therapy that starts with where you're at and moves with you.

After a decade of outreach and office-based social work, I know that options and flexibility matter. Maybe you’re a busy professional, have mobility issues, or your mental health is making it difficult to leave your home – I can come to you.

My office is centrally located at the Rogers Building in Downtown Vancouver and easily accessed by the Waterfront Skytrain Station or buses that stop on Granville Street. The building and office space is fully accessible.

Whether it’s over secure video chat, messaging, or over the phone, I offer a range of virtual ways to connect. Online therapy can be an effective and convenient way to access quality therapy from the comfort and privacy of your home.

Gain the research backed knowledge and tools needed to help you feel, think, and perform your best with therapist-created courses on sleep, anxiety, and stress management. Learn at your own pace with engaging content and action plans.

Frequently Asked Questions

The short is answer is maybe. While research shows that counselling in general can be great way to improve your well being, it’s not for everyone or may not be the right time. I offer a free consultation before starting any therapy for us to discuss your goals and can share my thoughts whether it’s a good time to start counselling.

While I draw on a number of evidence-based, therapeutic models, my general approach to counselling and therapy is integrative, collaborative, and focused on your strengths and goals. See my Areas of Practice page for more information.

A Registered Social Worker (RSW) is a regulated healthcare professional in British Columbia. An RSW is a Registrant of the  British Columbia College of Social Workers which requires certain educational requirements, ongoing professional development, and adherence to a Code of Ethics and defined Scope of Practice. Like Psychologists and Registered Clinical Counsellors, many Registered Social Workers provide psychotherapy and counselling services in public and private settings.

Please see my Fees page for more information.

I offer a reduced rate for post-secondary students enrolled. I also regularly maintain a resource list of reduced cost, sliding scale, and free counselling and therapy services in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland here.

Please check with your plan administrator whether services provided by a Registered Social Worker (RSW) are covered. Not all Extended Health Benefit providers offer this coverage.

Any communication between us before, during, and after counselling is strictly confidential, unless there is an identified risk of harm to yourself, others, or I am required by a court of law to provide information. My practice is compliant with British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) and the federal Personal Information and Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency or crisis, please reach out to a dedicated crisis line or the Access and Assessment Centre if you are located in Vancouver, B.C., attend the closest Hospital Emergency Department, or call 911.
