Having grown up in Wiarton, I have seen the changes and challenges with rural living first hand, and I know that sometimes all we need is someone to walk with us through the challenging moments of our day to day lives. When working with clients, the most important thing for me to do is LISTEN. You are the writer of your own story and you know best what it is your are looking for from our relationship. I promise to do my best to challenge you, support you, and cheer you on as you look within yourself to find the answers and see the change that you are seeking. One thing I know for sure is, people are strong and resilient.

Exploring your identity can be a painful process when you aren’t supported by your family and friends. This can be worse when something about your identity doesn’t fit with expectations. You’re filled with sadness and self-hatred and having to pretend causes you so much anxiety. You want to live authentically but you’re not sure how to navigate that process.

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.

At AnxietyLab RN Psychotherapy I work with kids, adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety, OCD and other mental health issues. Feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed with life is hard. It takes the fun out of life and keeps us from doing what we really want and sometimes need to do. Building a relationship and trust with my clients is my number one goal, the foundation of therapy. I always start with a thorough assessment. Once I totally “get” you we can set goals, make a plan, and get to work!

Ask yourself... are the struggles I'm experiencing in my life due simply because things are happening to me? Struggles in relationships, traumatic/problematic situations and unwanted thoughts do come into our lives but these struggles lie in our capacity to listen to our emotions and hear what it is they are trying to tell us about all of these things. Our emotions are an early warning system that calls us to action because we are seeking resonance (love, joy, balance, peace) in our lives. When things resonate with us, they feel right. It's a visceral gut reaction. Unfortunately, emotions don't speak English. Our thoughts do.

Are you noticing more about the world around you? Are you beginning to see patterns and repeating cycles in your life? It is hard to begin moving forward in life without becoming aware of how we respond and react. By becoming more aware, we are able to choose how we show up. We can choose whether we yell, whether we escape, whether we become more dysregulated. By building awareness, we have the power to become who we are meant to be, and to live our life's purpose. As a nurse psychotherapist, I help guide clients towards their true identity, offering them a warm, attuned presence so they can explore themselves fully.

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.
