Hey Phil,

 

I can tell you from experience it's harder for a business to show up in the 3 pack for a city that's 30 minutes away from the physical location. It's not impossible, I've seen it done. However the type of businesses that make it happen have been around forever, have a lot of brand equity and do SEO very very well. 

 

On top of that "counseling" services is not a small niche, you have a lot of competition, especially in a city like Vancouver. Many top experts say that location to the searcher is one of, if not the, biggest factor in who show's up in the 3 pack.

 

I wont tell you which strategy you should choose as they each have their benefits and drawbacks. But be prepared to have a long term strategy either way.

 

If I helped answer your questions, please mark my answer as the best answer. Thanks!
