There are many different reasons for seeking therapy. No matter what your age or stage of life, the human experience and journey can be difficult, and at times painful. We may need support along the way as we face this increasingly complex and intense world; deal with past and present life experiences and impacts; and manage our interpersonal relationships. Therapy can help determine why we feel stuck, to better understand our distress, and to find more effective ways to cope and move forward. I believe that all of us have the capability for continuous growth, healing, and overall well-being in our lives. Often the first step can be increasing awareness of ourselves and how we relate to the world around us.
I work with pre-teens and teenagers, adults, couples, and families. My therapeutic manner is one of non-judgmental presence and compassionate curiosity to help clients connect with their authentic self, support them in identifying their personal struggles, and in clarifying their therapeutic goals. My clients and I work as a team through this exploration to find suitable ways to address their needs. This may include finding more effective coping strategies, building increased resilience, fostering acceptance, finding enhanced ways of relating to oneself, and in connecting with those around us. I am a trauma-informed therapist who uses an integrated and client-centered approach drawing on various empirically supported therapies and research. These may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy and Attachment Science, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Mindfulness.
I do regular consultation with Dr. Martin Rovers, Psychologist, for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical expertise and to discuss client concerns in confidential manner.
The receipt you will receive will be in my name, as a Registered Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario, which is acceptable by most insurance companies (e.g. Sunlife). It is your responsibility to determine whether my receipt is acceptable for your workplace benefits and insurance.
The regular fee for counselling is $170 (plus HST).
