First Steps and Fees

Step 1 – A free consult

A first step is a free 15 minute phone consult.  This is an opportunity for us to connect and see if we are a good fit; to see if I can provide you with what you need at this point in your journey, or whether I can support you to find other resources or counsellors.

Step 2 – Individual, Coaching and Workshops

Individual Psychotherapy sessions provide you with a full hour dedicated to you.  Each hour long session is $180 (plus. tax).

For information about my Wellness, Career and Life Coaching please visit my Coaching website for my current coaching services.


Workshop prices vary, and prices will be listed alongside the information on the Workshops  page

Making payments and Insurance coverage

As a private practitioner, I request that fees are paid in full by the end of each session by e-transfer, cash or cheque. At this time I do not accept credit or debit.

Psychotherapy is not covered by OHIP (in Ontario, Canada). Some insurance companies may cover part or all of the counselling fee.  You will have to check with your insurance company and provide them with my designation (Registered Psychotherapist and Canadian Certified Counsellor with an MEd, Counselling) and my Professional Associations (College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association).

I am currently unable to accept new clients through Employment Assistance Programmes (EAPs).  EAPS provide short-term, limited, free counselling for you, your partner or children.  If you do not know whether you have access to EAP, your HR department can let you know and provide you with the contact information for the EAP.  If they are listed, you can request to be referred to a particular counsellor.
