I believe that every person has a right to make their own life choices. These choices do not always align with the values of the family or culture of which the person is part of and this can create many challenges for people. My role as a therapist is to help clients determine what they want to achieve and to support them as they move forward with their goals.

Therapy can be hard! And awkward. And vulnerable. It’s crucial that you feel seen, safe, and respected by your therapist and I’m here to bring in some levity and play to help us do the hard work. It’s important to me that you feel like an active participant and collaborator in the therapy process. Human beings are made up of all types of different stories; stories we tell others, stories we tell ourselves, some stories that are handed to us by the world without any of our say at all! Together, we can explore and learn more about the stories that make up your life and maybe write new ones!

Living with an advanced or chronic illness can feel like a full-time job.Alongside regular responsibilities, you’re juggling countless medical appointments and managing symptoms, while carrying a heavy mental/emotional load. You may be grieving life before illness, anxious about an uncertain future, and be grappling with difficult thoughts about death/dying, the purpose of suffering, or how to live a meaningful life. The process of finding a ‘new normal’ is unique to everyone. At times, it can feel isolating and exhausting, but you don't have to do it alone.

When intense anger or fear suddenly appears, it can be hard not to feel crazy. When people call you too sensitive or dramatic, it can be hard to not feel like there's something wrong with you. This probably makes you feel alone in your emotions and consistently anxious about how people see you and whether they'll abandon you. So, you try to distract yourself as best as you can so your emotions don't completely take over. But you can still feel them building up right beneath the surface, and you're tired of always pushing them down. I know how scary and exhausting this can be.

Living a full and satisfying life is never easy, and can oftentimes be lonely and overwhelming. Nobody can or should “go it alone.” You may want to grow, learn, or tackle obstacles in your path. Or perhaps you simply want to relax and be heard. Regardless, you have come to a good place. My goal as a therapist and human being is to accompany you on your personal journey, supporting you in the ways you want, helping you realize who you might want to be, and providing you with tools/strategies to help you in a safe, inclusive, and non-judgmental environment.

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.
