The act of self exploration is a deeply personal and unique experience that should look and feel different to each individual. In my work, I aim to meet everyone where they are, and show up as I am. Beyond all else, I value offering clients the opportunity to show up as themselves, and to be seen and heard without judgement. I believe that something really magical and powerful comes out of combining the minds and experiences of two people, and that the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance.

Is there a part of you that feels anxious, overwhelmed, or stuck? Do you find yourself battling with a harsh inner critic? If so, you are not alone. An internal conflict within us can often leave us feeling drained and defeated. Many people approach these parts of themselves with judgment and criticism, not knowing that these parts have helped them survive. When trauma happens, we respond to the past rather than the present moment. My goal is to help you heal from the past and restore a sense of calm and clarity within yourself.

It is so easy to lose touch with ourselves in a society that breeds perfectionism, competition and scarcity. It drives us to be in tireless pursuit of personal perfection, never feeling good enough, constantly comparing ourselves to others, knowingly repeating harmful life patterns, feeling depressed, anxious & shameful that life didn't turn out the way it was supposed to. This can leave us feeling emotionally, mentally, spiritually & physically bankrupt. I help you release all that exhausting mental chatter, process toxic emotions & energetic blocks so you can get back in touch with yourself to live a rich & fulfilling life.

Collectively, we have just experienced some of the most challenging times of our lives, and continuing. My framework is holistic in nature and offered virtually at this time. My focus has shifted to include techniques such as Emotional Freedom Tapping, body awareness modalities, breathing techniques, talk therapy, visualization, and other creative coping tools that can be self applied outside of session safely. These tools can be used to help manage de-regulation, nervous system overload, to gain clarity, and to act as a more gentle introductory towards the path of healing especially for those that have never sought therapy before.

Are you really living, or simply getting by? If life has become a treadmill of unhappy thoughts and unfulfilling behaviours, you're not alone. So many of us move from one unconscious pattern to the next, trapped in cycles that can leave us feeling hopeless and helpless. These cycles can keep us stuck in mindsets that cause distress, habits that make us miserable and relationships that bring us down. We go through the motions, our days shaped by these old cycles and patterns, and how we spend our days becomes how we spend our lives. But it doesn't have to be that way.

Sometimes, the things that have happened in our past can affect our daily lives significantly. Trauma can make people feel as if their past defines who they are and that it will always have a grip on them. Although traumatic events can cause lasting effects, there are ways to regain control over your life if you have experienced trauma or developed PTSD. As an EMDR clinician, I use an evidence-based approach to help you become 'unstuck'. Seeking trauma therapy requires immense courage. I understand how difficult it can be to discuss trauma, which is why I provide a calm, non-judgemental space for you to begin the healing process.

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.
