Counselling and Therapy Services
"Nothing will work unless you do." - Maya Angelou
Our Work Together
I offer a safe judgment-free space where you can speak honestly and freely. Your concerns will always be handled with empathy, compassion, and respect. After you've defined your therapy goals, we'll focus on the strengths that will help get you there and the blocks that may be in the way. My work with you is guided by the following beliefs:
You know yourself best
Your counselling needs are unique, so I combine different therapeutic styles that will help support your growth and healing. Part of our work to empower you will be learning ways to be resilient and kind to yourself.

Education and Experience
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and my practice is supervised by Tina Brunet, MA, CCC, RP. I have an MA in Counselling and Spirituality from Saint Paul University and a BA Hons in Psychology from Carleton University. My training includes certificates in cognitive behavioural therapy and compassion fatigue. In addition, I have 30 years' experience as a Psychometrist conducting neuropsychological and psychoeducational assessments with children, teens and adults in local hospitals and private practice settings.
I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation for you to ask questions and determine if I'm the best fit for you. The consultation is not a therapy session, so we won't dive into specific details about your concerns. The current fee for a 50 minute therapy session is $125 plus HST, payable by e-transfer or credit card. Credit card payments are accepted through PayPal. Please note that session fees are set to increase in January 2022.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties, I offer a limited number of sliding scale fee spots through my partnership with Open Path Psychotherapy Collective. Please contact me directly for more information.
Psychotherapy services are not covered by OHIP, but they may be covered in part by your insurance provider. Please confirm your insurance coverage before your first session.
