Are you looking for a different counselling experience? Some forms of therapy are highly structured and while this can be necessary and helpful it may not be the best approach for you. I utilize a holistic, integrative and relational counselling style that is free flowing and personalized to you, not a program! As we talk, I help you share your life issues and struggles, as well as your strengths and unique sense of self. In every session we'll explore your life experiences, work towards co-created goals, clarify your meaning-making, uncover your patterns of behavior and create space for authentic living and healing.

I have evening and weekend availability with a fully virtual practice. Is day-to-day life feeling difficult? Are you feeling lost or ‘off’? Perhaps you’re here because you’re experiencing feelings of inadequacy or struggling in your relationships. Maybe you’ve been feeling stressed, anxious or depressed. If you're feeling like you just know it has to be possible to feel better than you currently are, you’re in the right place. All of these experiences (and more!) can be reasons for seeking support from a therapist like me. Often, our struggles in life can make us feel alone, so I make sure to provide a warm, supportive environment.

I would like to help you. You may be struggling and stuck. You may have lost connection to a loved one. You may be grappling with who you are and who you want to be. As a child of two psychotherapists, I was introduced to mental health and relationship cultivation at a young age. In my educational, personal, and professional history I have obtained significant experience in using evidence-based therapy techniques with individuals and couples. When things are hard, staying steady takes a tremendous amount of energy and finding a way out may feel impossible. My goal is to assist you in finding your path to change.

Do you feel you may not be living as the best version of yourself? Do you feel haunted by your past? Struggling to move forward? As humans, we have an innate need to feel seen, heard, validated, and safe. I chose a career that allows me to meet these needs for people like you. Seeking therapy is a step towards self-awareness and healing. The differences between our rational and emotional brain can make us feel disconnected and recognizing our internal dualities can be helpful. Reconnecting with our inner child, processing our grief, and holding space for our emotions can be liberating and empowering, as well as immensely healing.

Sometimes there are no words that can accurately express to another what we feel. Other times, we may not even know ourselves what it is we're feeling or experiencing. In moments of this kind of suffering I offer space and time to explore what it is like for you and to just be. You are the expert of your life; curiosity and interest of your processes and experiences guide my support for you in the present. Working together does not mean one leads and the other follows but rather to be aware of how we impact one another and to notice what is happening for ourselves in the moment.

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.
