Counselling and Therapy
I’m so glad you are here. Choosing to engage in therapy is a courageous step and I want to honour that bravery in you.
How I can support you…
I offer one-on-one counselling and therapy services online. I specialize in supporting women to recover from anxiety and burnout so they can reconnect with their longing, creativity and joy. Here’s what we can focus on together:
Recover Your True Self
Throughout our lives we get so many messages about who we “should” be that we often lose sight of who we really are. I’m committed to support you to recover your true self and come back into alignment with who you want to be.
Reconnect to your Creativity & Joy
I support women to connect with the parts of themselves that may have been lost in the hustle culture of our modern society. If you desire to recover from burnout and reconnect with your creativity, play, longing, and joy – I’ve got you.
Heal from Anxiety, Depression & Burnout
I can help you cope with ongoing anxiety and depression symptoms and work to find greater emotional freedom. Using a variety of approaches and extensive experience, we can address your anxious thoughts and feelings together.
I have experience supporting individuals with significant trauma histories through a trauma-informed approach that keeps you safe while exploring your symptoms and experiences.
Here’s what you need to know about how we’ll work together…
How does individual counselling work?
Working with a counsellor for the first time can be a daunting process. Whether you’ve done this before, or you’ve never seen a therapist, there’s a lot to consider. I’ve tried to answer the common questions I receive about my services below, but if you still have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out and ask.
How much does counselling cost?
All individual appointments are $136.50 CAD including tax for a 60 minute session. Sessions are pay as you go and there is no obligation to book more than one session at a time, though you are more than welcome to. (For international clients my fees are $140 CAD per hour long session to cover additional processing fees).
I accept payment via e-transfer. If you need to pay by credit card, that is an option, though a small fee will be applied. International clients will receive an invoice payable online. Payment is expected at the close of the appointment or by the end of day if paying by e-transfer or online. I send clients receipts that include all the necessary information required to submit to your insurance provider if they cover Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC).
Can I work with you online?
Absolutely! I can work with clients located anywhere in Canada except Quebec. I can also work with clients in most other countries, including the UK and Australia. Due to licensing issues, unfortunately I cannot offer counselling to clients in the United States.
Everything works the same as in-person counselling except we’re connected to each other by computer. I use either Doxy or Zoom and will send you a private link to our session before we start. Payment, in this case, must be made by e-transfer or credit card.
Will my insurance cover your services?
What extended health benefit providers cover varies depending on your policy and what your employer has chosen to cover within that policy. Unfortunately, I cannot offer direct billing and if you are relying on insurance coverage you will need to submit receipts after our sessions.
I recommend that clients contact their insurance providers directly to find out if counselling with a Registered Clinical Counsellor is covered and to what extent.
Your benefits provider will most likely need to know the following information:
I hold a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology.
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). My membership number is 17836.
What counselling approaches do you use?
I approach my work from a variety of perspectives. My approach and training includes cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, interpersonal approaches, attachment theory, emotion-focused therapy and some somatic techniques. I will also incorporate psychoeducation to explain why things are happening and help improve your understanding of your own emotions and reactions. I am also trained in EMDR.
As well, all of the work I do is founded in trauma-informed practice. This means, even if we aren’t directly dealing with trauma, I am focused on ensuring we are deeply sensitive to you emotional state. We will move at a pace that ensures you do not become emotionally overwhelmed throughout the process.
Get on the waitlist
