Let's get you back to what matters most.

Welcome to Quadra Wellness and Counselling Vancouver. If you're feeling stuck and ready for change, I can help.

Counselling / Therapy

The challenges we tackle in counselling are never easy, but going to therapy can be a comfortable, positive, and affirming experience.

Clinical Supervision

If you are a mental health professional (eg. RSW, RCC), I can help you get unstuck through skill building, consultation, and support through ethical dilemmas.

Workplace Wellness

Mental health matters in the workplace. See how I can support your organization's efforts to care for the its most valuable asset - the people.

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 addictions issues.

 

Together, I can help you challenge stigma and shame, improve the quality and your effectiveness in relationships, find relief from anxiety, depression, addiction, develop the skills and habits to resolve your insomnia, or help you become more present and engaged in your life.

 

My approach counselling and therapy is collaborative, focused on strengths, and profoundly hopeful. I also identify as a member of the LBGTQ+ community and welcome people of 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 matters. Maybe you’re a busy professional, have mobility issues, or your mental health is making it difficult to leave your home – I can also 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.

I currently offer outreach-based counselling to Vancouver, Burnaby, the North Shore, and Richmond on a case by case basis. Please connect with me if would like to explore this option or mention it at our first meeting.

Whether it’s over secure video chat, messaging, or over the phone, I offer a range of ways to connect to match with where you’re at. Online therapy provides a convenient way to access quality therapy from the comfort and privacy of your home.

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. 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.
