Counselling Fees & Policies
What you can expect
Our relationship is key in developing a supportive space for you during our time together. Therefore, I believe that informing you of my services (fees, policies, and options) is important prior to investment. I have provided some of the information on services below. This information will also be discussed in our initial appointment, along with my consent to service and confidentiality forms.
I also offer training and supervision to other counselling professionals looking to develop their skills in grief and loss, and mental health.
Appointments may be conducted in-person or through eTherapy [tele-health (over the phone or video)].
Let's Start with a Free Consultation
Our relationship is key in developing a supportive space for you during our time together. You deserve quality service and treatment, which is why I start off with a free 15-minute consultation so you have all of your questions answered and we can see if we’re a good fit!

How We Can Work Together
Working together looks different for each client. For you, we may work together briefly as your concerns are managed quickly, or you may need to learn just a handful of skills. Or, you may choose to work with me for some time to manage a variety of concerns that are impacting you life. And we may work together on and off over the years, touching base with things that pop up and when you may need a little help.
When we work together, you get to decide how long that work is and what you want to work on.
I draw from Cultural Safety and Trauma-Informed Practice training. I work from an Existential focus in therapy overall, but to get there, I work through an eclectic lens. This means I bring in tools from different therapies as needed because no two clients are alike and therefore each session will be tailored towards what might be best for you at the time.
To support you best, I make sure to practice what I teach in my own life so that I can model the hard work I am asking you to do (such as challenging thoughts, doing things to take care of myself, and holding boundaries). You are not alone in this journey and I am here to offer my help. Additionally, our time together is always wrapped in support & encouragement so that our relationship becomes more than just a place for healing – but rather an empowering space where change happens!
