Telehealth-Based Assessment & Treatment 

Early intervention for psychological health issues leads to the best outcomes.

What is Telehealth?

Evidence-based treatments for anxiety, depression and life stress exist - and work in 8-12 sessions.

What We Do

Our psychologists, counsellors, and CBT coaches offer a range of clinical and counselling services for individuals, couples and families at a number of offices located throughout downtown Vancouver. We also offer services via telehealth – using secure, encrypted videoconferencing platforms. The benefits of telehealth are immense - outcomes for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and general life/work/relationship stress match outcomes for treatment offered in traditional office settings. Telehealth services also ensure rapid access to assessment and treatment - which can be particularly attractive for individuals/employers located in remote or rural geographical locations, or for those individuals who find it logistically difficult to attend in-office appointments. All assessment and treatment services are overseen by Dr. Samra, R.Psych.

Our Approach ​

Life is not always easy, and we believe that all of us – if we live long enough and go through enough life experiences – will struggle with psychological health difficulties at some point in our lives. At MyWorkplaceHealth, our team places strong value on client-centered approaches that are collaborative, solution-focused, and grounded in evidence-based science. We take a strong values-based approach in our work with clients, taking the time to learn about you and what’s most important to you. We pay attention to all important areas of your life – not just the symptoms – and work with you to enhance your quality of life both personally and professionally. We believe that all of us are experts in our own lives – as such, our clients guide the focus of treatment, and we work to ensure we have a strong understanding of your goals, hopes and dreams so that we can most effectively support you in achieving the outcomes you are wanting for your life. In addition to working with you to enhance your psychological health and wellness, we pay attention to your physical health (exercise, sleep, diet), your relationships (family, friends, intimate relationships) and work-related goals and pursuits (including workplace challenges and stressors).


Our team's expertise in the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace ensures that we understand the myriad challenges that may be faced by individuals dealing with workplace-related psychological health issues. When required/requested, we work closely with employers to create effective and successful return-to-work plans and, when warranted, can make recommendations regarding workplace accommodations.

Clinical Testimonial, RateMDs

Dr. Samra is one of a kind. I've been to several counsellors over the years and have not found them helpful outside of just being an ear to listen. Dr. Samra has a laser accurate sense (due to years of experience with clients and years of research) as to what drives a person, and the behaviours that get in their way. This finely tuned ability combined with her intuitive people skills make her an exceptional psychologist who is able to compassionately and enthusiastically guide clients towards a more fulfilling life. I feel very lucky to have gotten a space with her, and encourage anyone who needs help to do so as well.
