Relatability adds a significant layer of understanding when supporting clients on their therapeutic journey. As a first generation Canadian woman, member of the BIPOC community, oldest sibling, wife and mother, I have an appreciation for the complexities that contribute to our lived experiences. My client-centered approach to treatment allows the client to take the lead during their therapeutic journey, while I provide support and if necessary, the tools and interventions that may be required to accomplish your mental health goals.

I also work with those with self-esteem issues, interpersonal relationship challenges, anxiety, stress, and racial trauma. We are all unique, which is why you are the expert in your life. I am here to provide guidance, reflection, empowerment, and support while respecting your lived experiences.

Are you stuck? Life can be hard and sometimes we need support to get ourselves to where we would like to be. Often, changing your thoughts and behaviours is the key to feeling better, but this isn’t as easy as it sounds. Otherwise, you would have done that already!

I believe that compassion and acceptance are key to building relationships with yourself and with others. Self-acceptance is an important step towards self-esteem, confidence, and contentment. I believe that addressing these areas will be the support individuals, couples and families to work through issues of depression, anxiety, stress, relationship concerns, and parenting challenges.

I am a compassionate social worker providing therapy to clients struggling with challenging life experiences. It can be difficult to cope when experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict, or low self-esteem. I approach the therapeutic process from an anti-oppressive, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed lens. I hope to build a judgment-free and compassionate space with you when working through challenging and sensitive issues. Healing is a non-linear process, and my hope is to engage in a journey with you that deepens your self-awareness while developing effective coping strategies.

People come to counselling/psychotherapy for many reasons. Sometimes they are struggling with distressing emotions that get in the way of their productivity, daily functioning and peace of mind. Other times, they want to have better experiences in their relationships with family, friends, a loved-one or co-workers. In some cases they are going through periods of change and struggle to find balance and comfort in the midst of uncertainty. If you are at an impasse in your life... if you simply cannot go on with things being the way they are... you are in the perfect place for change to happen!

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.
