Are you a therapist working with couples and/or addiction clients?

Are you interested in extra client income without any of the financial expense, hours of labour, and ongoing demands of marketing yourself?

About Us

The Good Life Therapy Centre is a busy therapy practice located in downtown Vancouver.  Our Centre contracts Associates throughout the Lower Mainland to handle the numerous referrals for couples therapy, addiction and trauma work. This is an ideal position for therapists looking to build their private practice clientele, or for therapists working in agencies who want to expand into private practice work in the evenings or weekends.
