I am currently only offering video counselling, with occasional telephone counselling for regular clients on vacation or when there is technology issues. I am not able to offer in-person sessions at this point.
15-minute Telephone/Video Consultation – Free
This free consultation is to provide us a chance to talk and figure out if we are a good match, talk about expectations and procedures, and set-up the first session.
Individual Virtual Counselling – 50 minutes $150+GST
Extended EMDR Virtual Counselling – 90 Minutes $225+GST
Counselling will be provided through Owl Practice telehealth platform or Zoom.
I offer a sliding scale that is based on availability for those who cannot afford my full rate. Please discuss this with me either during a free 15-minute video/phone consultation or through email.
Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)
Option 1: $250+GST (includes intake session, remote access, and email support). The SSP is done alongside your weekly or biweekly sessions and costs $250+GST additionally.
Option 2: $750+GST (Includes intake session and 1 additional supplemental session, remote access, and email support). The SSP is done alongside monthly sessions and costs $750+GST additionally.
Both these options covers access to the program, and the time your therapist spends outside of counselling sessions monitoring and supporting you through email and/or secure messaging. It covers up to 4 repeats of the SSP Core (needs to be 6-8 weeks between repeats of SSP Core) and continued use of SSP balance after finishing the complete SSP. Sliding scale is also available for the SSP, contact me to find out more.

Many health insurance policies cover counselling. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers Registered Clinical Counsellors prior to our first session. I currently do not have any agreements with insurance companies for direct payments besides those mentioned above.
Please let me know if you have limitations as far as the amount of sessions (such as insurance for only 8-12 sessions or financial limitations), so we can form a treatment plan around what you are able to do. There are also options available for people who cannot afford the full price of sessions.
