Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Unresolved trauma? Do you ever just feel stuck? Or completely overwhelmed? Feeling isolated or simply disconnected from yourself or those around you? Sometimes despite our best efforts, we can’t make sense of what’s happening to us. Perhaps you are seeking a therapist to better understand how to navigate these thoughts and feelings. Or maybe you do not identify with any of these specific issues but want to explore some other area of concern. I would be delighted to take the first steps toward helping you achieve greater wellness.

People are wired to desire closeness within relationships. However, early trauma and deep seated disappointment train our brains to use strategies to decrease painful emotional experiencing. When nobody was there to bring comfort or teach coping strategies, people either grow up to isolate or become over involved in the lives of others. Therapy explores not just the storyline but more importantly, the emotions and meanings beneath. In therapy people want to strike that balance of feeling cared for and understood by the therapist, while also being gently challenged to risk change and the discomfort that comes with growth.

As a client-centered Family Therapist/Counsellor, I have the privilege of working with families, relationships and individuals. I help find the strength to create life changes, by identifying current patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, while working toward increasing an overall sense of well-being. I believe that a strong, trusting, and comfortable therapeutic relationship coupled with a compassionate and respectful approach fosters a safe environment. It is here that difficult topics and the sense of being "stuck" can be discussed and explored, until new/different ways for sustainable change can be found and implemented.

Wai-Han (慧娴) is my name. Wai: wisdom; Han: elegance. Being born & raised in a shame-based culture, from a young age, I was spoken over with things that were the opposite of this, that I do not measure up to my name. I experienced the power of words—that they can speak life or death, in my case evoking self-rejection. Through my journey toward healing, spoken words brought liberating life to me. Thus, I am passionate to speak life into people’s lives, to see individuals finding more internal freedom: feeling empowered and in control of their experiences: in the midst of struggling with depression, anxiety & challenging relationships.

I can help you to get your heart and mind on the same page in order to move forward with your life goals. If trauma, depression, anxiety or chronic pain are in the way, I can provide tools to manage these and therapy to help heal the roots of these.

Hello and welcome! It might be difficult to put into words what you’re looking for in therapy- that is a valid starting place, and one I’m personally familiar with. Maybe you feel like you’re meeting external expectations and are ‘getting things done’, but masking an internal experience that’s more complex, leaving you feeling exhausted, unseen, and stuck. Perhaps you struggle with serving the needs of others first and use unhelpful habits to cope with emotions and get through day-to-day. Things don’t have to reach a boiling point before you seek support or prioritize your well-being.

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.
