Counselling Philosophy

I do this work because I believe that every individual, couple, and family holds not only the potential, but the inevitability of growth and transformation. In session, I promote cognitive and behavioral transformation by considering distress as part of a larger whole. I utilize an accepting, supportive environment to help regulate negative emotions, and to promote neuroplasticity & lasting change.

I approach individual, couple and family therapy from a systemic perspective. This is a holistic approach to understanding how our experiences are co-created through relationships, which form and re-form views of self and the world.

I also integrate a psychodynamic approach, which understands distress through the lens of early childhood experiences and relationships, and how these early formative experiences may be continually impacting your world-views and self-concept, in conscious or subconscious ways.

I am under the consultation / supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers, (mrovers@rogers.com) Ontario Registered Psychologist, for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical learning and for psychological services to my clients. I consult with Dr. Rovers regarding my clients on a regular basis. The receipt you will receive will be in my name, as a Registered Psychotherapist, which is acceptable by many insurance companies (e.g. Sunlife / government, others). If need be, I could issue a receipt in the name of Dr. Martin Rovers, Registered Psychologist, for the counselling services provided by me, a Registered Psychotherapist. It is your responsibility to determine which receipt works for our workplace insurance and benefits.

The regular fee for counselling is $150 (plus HST).
