I have worked as a therapist for the past 25 years and come to this work with a depth of experience. I know the importance of finding a space to discover and nurture the hopes, potential and strength in each of us. I am able to offer a number of strategies and tools to manage issues in life - however - I have learned over the years, that one of the most important aspects of counselling is based in the understanding that we all have a sense of what we want in our lives but not always knowing how to get there. During this complicated time I am able to work with you over the phone.

Life can be difficult, and we all stumble at times. I think that one of the bravest things a person can do when they are struggling is to seek help. At the heart of psychotherapy is change. Whether your struggle is centered around relational issues/conflict, trauma/loss, an important life transition, addiction, sexuality issues, depression, stress, anxiety, or feeling stuck, your commitment to change is your ticket to feeling better.

Overcoming challenges, finding ways to cope with life changes, strengthening relationships, feeling more love and hope-we all come to counselling for a variety of reasons. Taking that first step can be hard, but it shows courage, commitment and strength. We all want to feel like we are living our best lives. Sometimes that can be challenging for many people, resulting in increased anxiety, depression and struggling to cope in general. By coming to counselling, you are making the right decision to take back control of your mental health and discover your strength to carry you forward to live your best life.

Seeking therapy is a sign of a personal strength, not a weakness. It takes awareness in our lives and courage to be able to reach out for help. Often people who engage in therapy are actually doing well in life but would like to do better in one area or another. I believe that the client is the expert on them and it is my role to support them to reach the goals that they set. Now excepting virtual clients in British Columbia.

Does it feel like like you're stuck and are unsure of how to make change? This isn’t how you thought you’d feel at this age and life stage. Maybe the worries about the future leave you feeling paralyzed. Maybe you've been thinking about talking to someone for awhile and are ready to take the next step. Maybe you experienced a loss (break-up, death of a loved one or pet) and are looking to process the grief. If you are feeling stuck and have no idea of how to change it, there is hope.

Are you struggling with obsessions causing intrusive ideas, urges, images, or thoughts that are unwanted and may cause guilt, shame or worry? Engaging in actions in order reduce the upsetting feelings or to prevent something bad from happening? Do you require family members to accommodate or participate in the compulsion? OCD can cause you to feel stuck and worrying about the "what if's". I provide Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) which has been found to have the most strong effect on the successful outcome of treatment for OCD.

Programming focuses on individual student needs "there is no one size fits all" for effective remediation/intervention. I work with students from elementary to post secondary educational levels. Students become familiar with personal strengths and weaknesses, learning style, study skills, time management and organization. Specialized software programs are used for literacy remediation. The overarching goal is to develop learner self awareness for enabling students to become competent, successful, independent learners while increasing self-esteem, self-confidence and grades.

The perinatal period can be one of happiness, light, excitement, and peace. However, it can also bring rise to feelings of deep fear, anger, loneliness, and loss. If this sounds familiar, please know that gratitude and grief are not mutually exclusive, and that you are not alone. Honouring our wounds is not a betrayal of our joy, and learning to tenderly hold both without judgment can be one of the most beautiful albeit challenging parts of our human experience – not at all unlike Motherhood generally.

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.

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.
