FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • I’ve never been to therapy. What can I expect working with you?
    Congratulations on taking this first step! Therapy can feel overwhelming and even scary if you are new to it, so here are a few things about my practice that might help put your mind at ease. Come as you are. I welcome you just as you are and you don’t need to show up any other way than how you are right now. Your sessions are for you. You get to choose what to talk about and how deep you want to go. I will gently and respectfully challenge you in ways that might push you, but it will always be at your own pace while honouring your needs. We will work together to create a plan that is in agreement with your goals and values. This plan is flexible and can change over time as the counselling process evolves.
  • How many sessions do I need?
    Everyone’s experience is different and healing takes time. It is a process of self exploration, unlearning and unpacking that needs to take its course. We need time to build a trusting therapeutic relationship in order to create a safe space where we can safely go deeper into challenging topics. I recommend starting with five sessions as this will give you enough time to see if you feel comfortable with me and for me to see a full picture of how I can best support you.
  • How often do I need to come?
    This is also different for each person and there are no rules as to how often your sessions should be, but consistency is important inorder to see progress and results. I usually recommend weekly sessions to begin with, especially for clients who are in crisis or need more support. When you decide to book your sessions is your choice and there is plenty of flexibility to come up with a schedule that works for you.
  • What is the cost?
    Standard Individual Session: $130 Standard Couples Session $150 Extended Healthcare Coverage: Many extended healthcare companies cover Clinical Counsellors. Check with your provider to see what your specific coverage entails. Sliding Scale I aim to make my service accessible to as many people as possible. I offer a limited number of sliding scale sessions for those who face financial barriers. Please contact me directly to check availability or for more information.
