Whether you’re experiencing depressed or anxious thoughts or feelings, difficulties in relationships, the impact of past trauma, feel trapped in addictive living, or looking for help navigating school or work-related stress, I would be honoured to help you on your journey. I will help you encounter the sensations, emotions, thoughts, and long-standing narratives keeping you stuck in repetitive disempowering cycles of behaviour and thought. I can help you cultivate a deeper awareness of your mind-body connection. Tuning inward opens up possibilities for building a healthier sense of self and more meaningful relationships.

Therapy for adults and children based on exploration of your individual resources; Couple therapy; Face-to-face and online sessions are possible; Humanistic process-centered approach. Describe your experiences and worries. Share your feelings, whatever they are. A priori - they are reasonable and important. A therapeutic dialog is a main but not only technique I use. It helps you achieve a new level of awareness. The better you understand yourself the better you manage your life challenges.

Every person experiences the world uniquely, and our brains are wonderfully diverse in how they process information. As a therapist, I recognize that there's no one "right" way of thinking, learning, behaving, or being. Our differences affect our perceptions, responses and social interactions.

Life can feel difficult and quite overwhelming at times. You may be feeling “stuck” in a particular situation, experienced a traumatic event, lacking motivation or confidence, struggling with a relationship, suffering from depression and/or anxiety, or feeling disconnected from others. If any of these situations sound familiar to you, know that you are not alone. Times of adversity are also times of growth, and with appropriate support, even the most difficult of situations can be used as an opportunity to become a better version of yourself!

Relationships and connections with others are an essential part of life. When those relationships cause us the most distress, where we do not feel emotionally safe nor loved without condition, we begin to question ourselves. We develop an amazing ability to categorize each problem and make ourselves believe that whatever is happening is not affecting us. When this coping strategy is applied, the body’s distress signals get disconnected from the mind. At times we feel numb, while at other times like our emotions are out of control. We may experience anxiety and fear, and/or have such low mood that we think we will never find joy.

Using a trauma-informed approach, we will work together to better understand how your struggles stem from the past, while making room for new coping strategies. Trauma leads us to feeling on edge, panicky, numb, self-critical, and defensive in relationships. I am here to help you break free of these cycles and develop new ways of relating to yourself and others, as well as build capacities for inner strength and resilience.

I provide psychotherapy which is grounded on listening and understanding. There is much for me to hear before I get the full picture of what is going on in your life, and lots to discover for you and me together before the time comes for my expert advice. My main discovery of the last decade is that people can come to many therapists, for many times and yet not become ready ever to say openly what is the matter. It is why I know my clients need time to assume that I am really on their side. To figure out, bit by bit, what the possible advice or solution can be and then help you to do that we decide to do, I have my basic training in client-centered psychotherapy (“by Carl Rogers”), and I am a very, very orthodox Rogerian therapist. In addition, I have studied cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectic-behavioral therapy, music psychotherapy and non-directive child play psychotherapy. I will apply in your situation that which matches your particular needs. Also, I realized that some ideas of psychoanalysis, Adlerian psychotherapy, Existential therapy and Logotherapy can be helpful as well.

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.
