Perhaps you have reached out because you have fears about what is happening in the world. Maybe you are struggling with some type of substance abuse, an eating disorder, or an addiction. Possibly you are in an abusive, or a dissatisfying relationship. Perhaps you are dealing with grief and loss. Or, you may be dissatisfied with your job/career, and you would like to make a change. Maybe you have questions about whether there is something more to life than the circumstances that you are now living in. Perhaps you have been on a human development path, and feel like you want to take your work to the next level.

The goal of psychotherapy is similar to the goal of life, which is to live the best life possible. But life is full of change and challenges, some of which we embrace and even pursue full heartedly, some of which we are initially shocked by but are able to manage with minimal disruption to our lives. At other times such experiences can be disorienting, leaving us feeling lost, confused, hopeless, and at times unable to move forward. If you are feeling stuck in any facet of your life, psychotherapy can be a valuable means of re-orienting yourself.

Struggling with excessive worry, frequent negative thoughts or intense emotions can be overwhelming and leave you feeling stuck. It can be hard to know what to do. It might feel like worry or your inner critic is in control. You may want things to change but not know how to make change happen. The things you are trying to do to cope might only be working in the short term, and the problems keep coming up. It is possible to learn new ways to cope with thoughts and feelings, so that they don't have so much control over what you do.

Do you have feelings that are difficult to put into words? This struggle to understand and express can lead to anxiety, a lack of energy or focus, a sense of being disconnected from others- and yourself. Making art can help to get those thoughts and feelings out, and help you find your voice. You can begin to experience a shift- a sense of purpose that comes from bringing out your own strengths. I bring my background and experience in teaching, art and psychotherapy to my practice, offering children and adults a space to explore and express their thoughts and feelings- and to get creative in how to move forward.

Life is hard. Choosing a therapist doesn't have to be. As a neurodivergent human trying to shimmy and shake my way through life, I often turn to humour to help lighten my thoughts while attempting to bring compassion and joy to the people around me. I am a firm believer that laughter is an essential medicine and should be a fundamental tool in the therapy space. At the age of 17 I had my first incredibly helpful experience with therapy, and since have committed to de-stigmatizing mental health ever since. As a member of the LGBTQIA2S+ community, I am passionate about offering a safe inclusive space to all people :)

However, with over 31 years of experience under my belt, I can confidently assure you that your suffering can quickly and effectively diminish.

There’s so much you’d like to do, yet it feels like your life has come to a standstill. Inner chaos and pain, or numbness and disconnection seem to take up so much space, making you lose valuable time. You’re exhausted from living in fear, or dealing with the frustration, bitterness, or shame that comes with not being able to move forward. While your experience can lead to isolation as you find it hard to be around anybody, you may also find it difficult to be alone at all, impacting your ability to have healthy relationships. You feel as though pieces of your life have been lost along the way and all you want is to have them back.

Imagine feeling trapped in a whirlpool of anxiety, unable to pause and take a breath. Or envision a racing mind that won’t slow down enough to focus on the strategies that could help. Conventional therapies might have all the right answers, but the body refuses to cooperate. You know WHAT to do, but your body and brain won't listen! Whether it’s extreme anxiety, hypervigilance, or attention deficit problems, challenges often lie in a constant battle between the sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous systems that leave many people caught in an unproductive cycle.

How can I find a therapist in P1A?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or postcode; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone 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 postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In Canada, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or province where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

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.

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.

How much does therapy cost?

Some forms of mental health treatment (for example, seeing a psychiatrist, or seeing a psychologist in a government-funded hospital) are free under provincial health plans. Canadians who seek private counseling can typically expect to pay an average of $150 per session, although the actual price generally ranges between $100 and $3200 per session, depending on their location and the type of provider they select. Workplace benefits or private insurance plans often provide an annual counselling allowance, and some therapists offer sliding scale fees to clients who cannot pay full price.
