My name is Carl. I’m a psychotherapist and a couple and family therapist. I have been in practice for thirty years ( I know, I look so young). I work with individuals, couples and families with mental health, addiction, and relationship difficulties. I like to listen to people and to help them make sense out of what they’re going through. My ideal client appreciates that therapy is hard work and sometimes painful, but can also be fun. I will provide you with a safe place to express your feelings, explore your hurt, and begin new growth. You should learn something new. That’s the fun part.

Whatever thinking and behaviours you find problematic that have become interwoven in your daily living, you can unlearn. It will not be easy to learn new behaviours, ways of thinking, and communication, but the brain is capable of forming new pathways. You are capable of change. A lot of hard work and introspection are involved, and you may experience setbacks. This is part of healing. I am here to help in this process to make connections from your past, guide you in your present and support you to take charge to improve the outcomes of your future.

You know what’s universal? Struggle. We can’t get rid of life’s problems; they’re inevitable and trying to avoid them is a lesson in exhaustion. What we can do is: learn to practice acceptance; to grow, to heal and work toward living our best, most meaningful lives. I provide a safe and compassionate space for clients who struggle with any of life’s problems. I connect and collaborate with my clients during their healing journey to address their current lives, and any personal history that continues to impact daily life.

Are you concerned about your child/adolescent? Have they experienced divorce/separation, anxiety, depression, domestic violence, trauma, grief/loss, attachment issues, adoption, suicidal ideation, aggression, or self-esteem issues? Are they having issues with emotional regulation, behavioural challenges, coping skills, problems sleeping/eating or school problems. You may feel lost in knowing where to turn for help, and how to re-connect to your child. When children experience difficulties in their lives, they are often unable to express their feelings in traditional talk therapy.

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.
