Welcome to my Counselling Practice

  • Rob has a warm and engaging therapeutic style. His openness and optimism made me feel hopeful. I also appreciated his sense of humour.
  • Rob is very professional and at the same time, very human. A great combination in a therapist.

  • Rob asks some very good questions. He really made me think about what I am doing and why.
  • The work I did with Rob has made a real difference in my life and has given me the insight and tools to keep moving forward into new and exciting areas.

My name is Rob Goepfrich and I offer counselling services to individuals (including children and adolescents), couples and families in the Comox Valley. I have been in practice for over 25 years and draw on experience from a variety of settings, including Community Mental Health, Employee and Family Assistance Programs (EFAP's) and Private Practice.

Clients bring a wide range of concerns, including:

I often meet with people at important transitions in their lives, such as: preparing for marriage, navigating parenting challenges, facing the loss of a loved one, or a change in their work lives. For many, counselling is helpful in untangling the web of family relationships.

My focus is to help people manage and reduce their stress and anxiety over the issue or problem they are facing, to understand their part in it, and to work on solutions that create positive change.

I have a special interest in working with adult siblings and their parents; helping them to manage their relationships with one another, as well as cope with issues such as eldercare. I also enjoy working with families who are struggling with the specific challenges that may come with parenting adolescents.

In addition to my counselling services, I provide clinical supervision and consultation, as well as training and education for other professionals who work with couples and families.
