The world we live in is complex, fast moving, and often overwhelming. For so many children, teens and adults the ability to calm our minds, decompress from the stress of deadlines and schedules, and develop the unique qualities that make us individual, simply isn't available. Anxiety, stress and frustration can lead to challenging behaviours, withdrawal from family and friends, depression, decreased confidence, and distance from our usual pleasure in hobbies, sports and work. Counselling is about growing your strengths and being empowered to step beyond those events or challenges that have left you feeling vulnerable or wounded.

Are you feeling anxious or overwhelmed? Have feelings of depression got your down? Or are you just feeling "lost"? I have worked with a variety of clients, and as an anti-oppressive social worker, I have many 'tools' to help, including cognitive behavioural therapy, art therapy, mindfulness, narrative therapy and more. I firmly believe that the client is the expert and they know what they need to change; and my job is to help facilitate that.

Hello! I am a registered social worker who has been working with children, youth, and families in Fort St John for 12 years. When I started, I fell in love with the safety, creativity, and fun of expressive therapies. I am constantly amazed by how much someone can achieve when they aren't made to rely on words alone to express their needs and learn new skills.

Perhaps you’ve grown tired of carrying beliefs like “I’m not good enough” or “I’m unlovable”. Maybe you’re hoping to find relief from the all-too-familiar persistent anxiety, and low self-esteem. Perhaps you're tired of constantly people-pleasing, and relentlessly criticizing yourself. Well...You are not alone. Each one of us has a unique story; a diverse history filled with moments of joy and pain. Sometimes, our stories become overrun with unhelpful assumptions or beliefs, sometimes trauma plays a role. It’s natural for challenges to be a part of our story; but I want to ensure they do not dictate all your future chapters.

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.
