I am a Registered Psychologist who is passionate about helping children, adolescents and young adults with emotional, academic and behavioral difficulties. I have been an educator and school counselor for the past 30 years and I am cognizant of the struggles that some children or youth experience in the regular school system. My experiences as a classroom teacher and school counselor have prompted a desire to work with students with learning, emotional and behavioral challenges in conjunction with their families.

Maybe you have dreams and goals that feel like they are slipping away or have gotten off track. You might have conflicting needs, wants, or values that are leaving you feeling stuck or even out of control. Perhaps you have big emotions that are clouding your vision and dictating behavior causing distress. You might be questioning where you came from and how you got here and want to find acceptance and belonging. We can work together towards flexible, organic goals, dialing in structure as we seek to understand where you are, where you have come from, and where you would actually like to go.

It is my belief that people have the strengths and abilities to navigate through life's challenges. The question is, "How do you use what you already have to meet life's challenges?" I work with individuals, groups, families, teams, and organizations collaboratively towards shared goals and outcomes that are rooted in evidence-based practices. Sessions are interactive, transparent, and optimistic. An eclectic approach rooted in Individual Psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy offers the versatility for a culturally sensitive, non-judgmental, and an efficient working relationship.

Are you a "big feeler"? Have you always been considered emotional or sensitive? Big feelers are often filled with worries about the future and overwhelmed by the present. You might spend a lot of time dealing with racing thoughts and fears. It's difficult to feel like you're living a secret life where no one knows how much you struggle. You might even feel like no one really knows you. You might wish you could just turn your brain off for a while and not feel so deeply impacted by everything.

Our complex life experiences often shape how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. I find people heal and experience the changes they hope for in the right environment, with the tools that work best for them and through connection to their authentic self. It is important that I create an open, compassionate, warm, non-judgemental and safe environment where clients feel supported and empowered to work on their goals. I recognize that accessing support is not easy, and I feel privileged and grateful to accompany clients on their healing journey.

What is the MORE you are searching for? Many people seek out therapy because they are tired of their lives or they want to get rid of the words in their head that beat them down. They want to find a better them. More can mean a number of things- joy, confidence, motivation, creativity, or boldness (to name a few). Creating change is not easy or fast, but we have to start somewhere. One of the best feelings is being seen and heard for who we are- it feels so good, yet can be so scary at the same time. It may feel out of reach, and that's okay.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are certified by one of the main professional associations, mainly the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and will have a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) designation with their name. Social Workers listed in the directory must be registered members of the college specific to their province. To be listed in the directory, Psychologists must be registered with the psychological college specific to their province or territory.

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given the considerable variation in professional regulation and prerequisites across Canadian provinces, some providers may possess significant professional qualifications without necessarily holding professional memberships or being obliged to acquire them. As a result, they may be selectively included without the "Verified" seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists and social workers can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and supervised, practical experience that enable them to do so in Canada.

Psychologists have a master's and/or doctoral degree and have passed both written and oral exams. Psychologists are able to complete mental health assessments and provide diagnostic information to clients as well as provide counselling therapy or psychotherapy. Counsellors and psychotherapists are expected to have a master's or doctoral degree in counselling psychology, social work, or a related mental health discipline and certification by a professional association, such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Registered Social Workers possess a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Social Work and where possible must be licensed or certified by the provincial government and/or regulatory college.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, the cost of a therapy session in Canada could be between $100 and $200. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. Some types of outpatient mental health services are covered by Medicare, provided these are performed by a licensed mental health professional in the provinces or territory you reside in and who accepts the assignment.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postal code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Professionals licensed by regulatory colleges and those certified by associations such as the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association are obligated to uphold client confidentiality unless there is a legal reason that requires them to disclose information. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there is the potential or known harm to the client or others, or a court order, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
