My theoretical orientation and clinical approach is a client-centred, strengths-based integrated cognitive behavioral therapist incorporating positive psychology with an existential and humanistic lens. I believe that everyone is resilient and has the ability to make positive changes in their lives and the lives of others. I worked for ten years with marginalized individuals involved with the justice system who have experienced trauma, loss, crisis, addictions, sexual abuse, and violence. I work from a multicultural social justice lens with children, youth, adult individuals, family and couples.

My ideal client is that individual who has experienced trauma in their life, be it violence, loss of a loved one, divorce or separation or death of a loved one. They feel lost and do not know how or where to begin from in the reconstruction of their lives. They so desire to live a normal life but their trauma does not permit them. They want to be free and pick up their lives from where they got off track.

Does life feel so demanding you can’t do it anymore? Do you struggle to say no, set boundaries, or have too few moments when you feel ‘ok?’ Has your substance use been getting out of hand? You may be doing your best to cope, but just coping is not enough.

I come from a background in Creative Writing where I enjoyed exploring people and their stories. I see my transition into counselling as a continuation of this work; helping clients to explore their own stories and the stories we tell as a culture. I work from a generalist counselling perspective, meaning I do not have a specific focus in my work and aim to meet my clients where they're at. That said, I have a particular interest in helping individuals navigate relationships, sexuality, and life transitions.

My goal is to help you get your bearings. In order to figure out how to move forward, we have to consider the past so we can orient to the present. It's like using a compass! It's a great tool if you know where you currently are and how you got there. Figuring out how your experiences have affected your behavioural patterns allows you to grow and leave behind what no longer serves you. I believe that people have all the answers within them—it's just a matter of asking the right questions!

Relational Psychotherapy is an approach that focuses on the connection between self and other. This type of framework locates a person’s difficulties within an interconnected web of relationships. The premise is that we are born into relationships and we are formed by them. In these relationships we can experience both trauma and joy and it is through relationship that we can begin our journey towards integration and personal wholeness. We cannot eradicate suffering but we can allow it to transform us to bring our best self forward into the future.

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.
