Expect Change...

Individual Counselling

Counselling Options:  In my counselling office, face-time or by phone. 

I work collaboratively to help you identify and achieve your counselling goals. Some of the challenges that you may be facing or have faced are: stress and anxiety, depression, fear, anger, abuse, trauma, loss and grief, self-esteem, life transitions and mental health challenges. 

No matter how difficult it may seem right now, as we journey together you will begin to feel hope for a brighter future. You can achieve your counselling goals!

Couple and Marriage Counselling

Counselling Options: In my counselling office. A variety of off-site workshops will also be available.

So many challenges come our way as a couple, be it married or unmarried. Some of the areas that I have helped couples in and that you may be experiencing right now are:  infidelity, betrayal, pornography addiction, relationship expectations, cultural differences, intimacy, loss and trauma.

When I have counselled couples in these challenges, it was often that their hearts were hurting and the pain was unbearable. However with each step they took there was another glimmer of hope until the light was completely on again! 

Family Counselling

Counselling Options: In my counselling office. Additional counselling may be recommended to accommodate all family members.

All families face ups and downs and it does not matter if you live as a nulear family or a blended family, it can be challenging to live with so many differences and so many views within your family system. I have helped families in the following areas:  blended family challenges, parenting, working through the developmental stages of life as well as in loss and grief.

I believe in the "Family Systems" approach to counselling. Family is were we first learn about love and belonging. I enjoy this approach and have seen great results in building happier relationships and families!

How does it work?

How do the counselling sessions work?

The aim is for each session to be approximately 50 minutes in duration. There is some flexibility to this. The next session is booked at the end of each session. 

What about my counselling goals?

Your counselling goals are important and is the purpose you have come to counselling. We work on defining a clear counselling goal. Additional counselling goals may arise and a new plan will be discussed if this becomes necessary.

What about Fees?

Fees are discussed at the time of your initial intake session. The cost of each session is to be paid at the end of each session. Currently, I work on a sliding scale based on many factors and will be determined at the initial intake session.

What about Insurance coverage?

Check with your Insurance plan what kind of insurance coverage you have and the details of what credentials your insurance company is requesting.

What are your credentials?

I have a Masters degree in counselling at Tyndale University College and Seminary. I am also classified as a mental health professional with the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrics and Psychotherapists. I am a member of the College of Psychotherapy of Ontario (CRPO) and in the process of completing my designation as a Registered Psychotherapist.

How long will my counselling take?

Counselling varies for a variety of reasons. A plan is discussed at intake or at the first session to determine how many sessions it may take.
