Please also see blog entries for more detailed information about the clinical approaches I use and for information about specific topics related to mental health, connections between philosophy and psychotherapy and ecotherapy and nature-based therapies.


How long is each session?

Individual sessions are 50 minutes in length, and extended sessions are also available for 75 minutes. Free 15 minute consultations are available as well to see if we are a good fit for therapy.

How often do we meet and for how long?

We can meet weekly, biweekly or monthly depending on your schedule and on what issues you would like to work on. Length of treatment can vary from 10-12 sessions or longer. 

How do I pay and what are your cancellation policies?

Payments accepted include e-transfers or credit card. Payment is due by the beginning of each session and 24 hours notice is required to avoid payment for a cancelled appointment.

Is what we talk about confidential?

Everything we discuss is kept confidential according to relevant laws and files are stored electronically on Canadian servers. Limits to confidentiality include risk of harm to self or others and child or elder abuse, which must be reported by law.

Do you see children or adolescents?

I do not see children or families. Adults of all ages over 18 are welcome. Couple and group therapy will be offered soon in addition to individual therapy.

What are mindful, compassionate and nature-based approaches to therapy?

Nature-based therapies, or eco therapy, is based on the idea that nature can provide benefits to the therapeutic experience in a number of ways and these can be experienced through what some call 'walk and talk' therapy either in person or by phone. Mindful and compassionate approaches to therapy are based on evidence to support the mental and emotional benefits of mindfulness meditation practices that can include compassion and self-compassion practices. I work to include these in therapy to provide a safe and calm environment for each client to experience as they work on whatever issues they choose to focus on. You can read more about these approaches on my blog page.

What are your fees?

My fees are consistent with CRPO guidelines and other psychotherapy professionals in the area, and are based on single sessions (50 minutes for $145 plus HST), extended sessions (75 minutes for $200 plus HST) and individual,  or group rates. Fee details are provided in the initial consultation and if you open the scheduling program. Please ask about sliding scale fees if this is something that would be of benefit to you.

Can I claim fees through insurance?

Please check with your health benefits policy to see if you are covered for psychotherapy services, as plans sometimes differ. You can also check for limits to your coverage and if there are specific conditions attached to your coverage. You can often find your specific mental health services coverage under 'paramedical' costs.
