Book a Session Online

I offer in-person and video therapy sessions for adult individuals who experience difficulties related to:

  • Burnout, Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Anger
  • Grief and loss
  • Relationships & Communication
  • Parenting
  • Personal Development and Success

I use an integrative approach that is influenced by Person-Centered Therapy, CBT, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Existential and humanistic Therapy, and Mind/Body Medicine. I tailor my sessions to meet each client’s unique needs and work with the client to develop customized skills, tools, and strategies to meet his/her goals. I also provide feedback and emotional support as the client implements what’s learned in therapy into his/her daily life.

Couples Therapy

I offer in-person and video couples therapy using Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) approach.

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short-term (eight to 20 sessions) and a structured approach to couples therapy developed by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg in the 1980s. It is grounded in research and focusing on identifying and changing negative communication patterns and strengthening couples’ love as an attachment bond.

Research studies have found that 70-75% of couples undergoing EFT successfully move from distress to recovery, and approximately 90% show significant improvements. This recovery is also quite stable and lasting, with little evidence of relapse back into distress

Insurance Coverage

As a Licensed Counselling Therapist, my services are covered by several private insurance providers such as Blue Cross, Sunlife, Johnson’s Insurance, Manulife, etc. As individual plans vary, please contact your insurance provider to find out your specific coverage. Receipts for your sessions are provided to you for reimbursement purposes. Therapy cost is also considered medical expenses for tax purposes.

First Session Satisfaction Guarantee
For most people, taking the first step to seek professional help is difficult. It is not easy to talk to a stranger about personal matters. If you are not familiar with the service provider, you are also taking a financial risk. To ease these common concerns, I offer a First Session Satisfaction Guarantee.

How does it work?
Your first session of regular length (50 minutes) is FREE if you feel unsatisfied and decide not to make another appointment or I believe that I am not suitable to help you and I refer you to another professional.

What normally happens in the first session?

  • You tell me about the concerns that bring you to counselling.
  • I gather background information and make an initial assessment of your situation.
  • I help you identify your goals for counselling.
  • I propose an outline of interventions to help you reach your goals.
  • Suggestions may be made to get you started in restoring your well-being/solving your problems.
  • You get a sense of who I am and what it is like to work with me.

With the First Session Satisfaction Guarantee, you have a RISK-FREE opportunity to decide for yourself whether working with me is for you. Take the first step toward the happiness and peace you deserve. Contact me now!
