Please take note that our standard weekly couples’ sessions are 90 minutes long. Maintenance sessions can be of shorter duration, while extended sessions or intensives will be decided collaboratively based on your preferences and needs.


I am an independent practitioner and not affiliated with any insurance company. I do not directly bill insurance providers. Many extended health and medical benefits plans offer reimbursement for the total or partial cost of counselling sessions with a registered clinical counsellor. It is recommended to check with your insurance company to understand the specific services they cover

I provide counselling services both online and in person. In-person sessions are currently available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Please inform me of your preferred option, and we can schedule our meetings accordingly.  

For individual counselling, 60-minute sessions are typically sufficient. If you have a lot to cover, please book your sessions accordingly.

For couples, our initial joint intake/assessment session is 90 minutes. Following this, I will meet individually with each partner for a 60-minute intake/assessment session. Subsequent couples’ sessions are a minimum of 75 minutes unless it’s a maintenance session. 90-minute sessions are often utilized at the beginning of couples therapy.

The number and frequency of sessions are tailored to individual or couple’s needs and their specific goals for personal growth and relationship enhancement. Therapy is an investment in oneself and the relationship. Some individuals or couples may have specific needs and achieve their goals in a few sessions, while others may require a more extended commitment for substantial outcomes. For instance, couples with a history of challenges might find value in committing to therapy for several months or even a few years to address and navigate deeper issues.  

I employ an integrative approach to therapy, weaving together various theoretical models and therapeutic tools to cater to your unique needs. While my foundation lies in the Bader-Pearson Developmental Model for Couples Therapy, I continually leverage my training and expertise in diverse modalities such as the Gottman Method, Internal Family Systems Theory, Sex and Sexual Health Education, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and more. This flexibility enables me to offer a range of transformative interventions, adapting to what resonates best with each individual or couple.


Additionally, my mediation training is instrumental in identifying communication challenges within relationships. Together, we’ll explore and pinpoint old patterns and habits that might hinder effective communication. I am committed to empowering you with the skills and tools necessary for clear articulation of your needs and efficient conflict resolution, fostering a positive and empowering dynamic in your interactions.

Anticipate my deep commitment to your journey of growth and development. Count on my continuous pursuit of up-to-date, evidence-based knowledge and tools. Be prepared for challenges that encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and actively disrupt patterns that may no longer serve you, all while supporting you to make the necessary changes. I understand that past trauma and history can profoundly impact our lives, and my compassionate approach is designed to strike a balance between support, understanding, empathy, and the necessary challenge to explore and change what hasn’t been working. I don’t believe in merely parroting your words or providing unquestioning validation. Instead, I see my role as challenging you, pushing you to examine patterns and beliefs with sensitivity to your unique experiences. I believe in a collaborative approach that empowers you to understand, reflect, and make meaningful changes. I expect your equal investment and engagement in self-discovery, recovery, and growth. Our collaboration is a team effort, with each of us contributing to help you successfully achieve your goals.

Like any other commitment you make towards self-improvement, such as signing up for a gym membership, buying clothes, or travelling, counselling also requires an investment of your resources. If you are unsure, to help you decide, ask yourself, “Can you afford NOT to invest?” If you sense deep down that something is “missing” in your life and relationships, give yourself the gift of possibilities. That is, a real chance to grow and develop a life that leads to deeper connections and greater life satisfaction.
