I offer therapeutic services to adults of all ages. I work collaboratively with individuals to set and achieve realistic goals in improving relationships and communication, relieving depression and anxiety and adjusting to life stressors such as challenges in the workplace. I also work with people who suffer from chronic illness. Therapeutic intervention in this context aims essentially at helping people adjust to the significant changes and challenges brought on by the chronic condition in their physical state, self-image, social roles and relationships.

From boardrooms to babies, burn rates to burnouts—you've been there. You’ve experienced fires and fascinations, exhilarations and exhaustion. You've known victory and felt pain, DIY'd and Googled, but something's amiss. Generic advice doesn’t cut it. Perhaps ADHD whispers amidst the noise. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck or maybe you’re just tired of searching for a better way on your own. Let's create one together. With a coach, your way is smoother, bolder, you-er, sooner.

Change starts with the relationship that we form in the therapy and then continues by building useful skills in and outside of our sessions. In practice this means that I fit best with clients who are interested in (1) understanding more about their thoughts and emotions while also (2) taking clear steps to improve their mental and physical well-being. My job as the therapist is to provide a warm and caring environment to support the client in this process.

As a queer non-binary psychologist, I combine my professional and personal experience in my work with clients. I support queer adults manage and mitigate the impacts of Queer Burnout. What is Queer Burnout? It’s a distinct flavour of burnout where the exhaustion is caused by the reality of navigating life as a queer person (see www.talltreepsychology.com/blog/is-queer-burnout-a-thing). More precisely, I work with 2SLGBTQ+ adults looking for support in managing exhaustion, prioritizing their needs and setting boundaries.

For many of the people I work with, there is an addictive substance or behaviour present in their life that they can't remove and has become problematic for them in their relationships, in their ability to work, and in their mental and/or physical wellbeing. Many have tried to stop on their own but haven't been able to get more than a few months of abstinence before going back to the addictive substance or behaviour and they understand they need someone with experience to guide them in their efforts. The goals vary from person to person and I work with each individual to reach their specific goal of what a healthier life looks like.

Accepting new patients. In-person sessions (Centretown). The goal of my treatments is not only to alleviate or extinguish psychological symptoms, but also to allow patients to better know and understand themselves. Working with an interpersonal psychoanalytic approach will lead you in the exploration of both conscious and unconscious experiences, which fosters a better functioning within your interpersonal contexts. I have been working with a large variety of patients of all ages, treating them not as a mere set of symptoms but as whole people with unique and unrepeatable stories.

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.
