I’m so glad you’re here.
Using transformational therapies and neuroscience based approaches, sessions are gentle, painless, and fun as they resolve trauma and bring about immediate and lasting change.
I believe therapy is like going to the dentist.
You don’t go every time you need to brush your teeth. You are more than capable of doing that on your own. You go when something shows up that a dentist needs to do…that’s why you don’t see “Do It Yourself” cavity filling kits at Walmart. You also go every now and then for a check up or cleaning. And some people make it their whole lives and never go. That’s okay too. Therapy is like going to the dentist. You go, you get stuff taken care of, leave with a fresh, clean smile and come back every now and then as it’s needed.
Anything else is called rent-a-friend and I know we can all do better than that!
So, let’s get things started! Check out the sections below to learn more about sessions and other topics you may be wondering about. Then let’s get your free initial phone consultation scheduled where we will connect and book your first appointment. Remember, your job is to show up and my job is to take care of the rest!
Sessions may range from 30 minutes to 90 minutes and cost $226, which includes HST, regardless of length or type of session. The initial session is scheduled for an hour and half (90 minutes) with follow-up sessions scheduled approximately two weeks apart. On average a person attends 3-4 sessions, sometimes less, sometimes more, as services and needs vary. Recommendations are made at the end of each session to discuss what has value and makes sense for you. Family sessions may include meeting together as well as individually. All sessions are audio or video recorded to allow for documentation of the session as well as to provide me with opportunities to review sessions for ongoing learning. By consenting to audio or video recording you’re helping me to help others, which is a cool energy to start with!
Due to Covid-19, currently all sessions are being provided online through a secure video platform. Although based in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, online services provide the opportunity to participate in sessions remotely, with a variety of services available no matter where you’re located. Appointments are available Monday-Friday from 9:00a-8:00p and on Saturdays from 9:00a-12:00p.
Coverage for Sessions
Doctor’s referrals are not required to access counselling services. Coverage for sessions may be reimbursed through your Extended Health Benefits, through Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) for those who are registered First Nations and recognized Inuit, or through your work’s Employee Assistance Plan.
Those that have been victims of violent crimes and unable to afford services, may be able to access funding for services through the Ministry of the Attorney General’s Victims Quick Response Program (VQRP).
Services are also available to children, youth, and their families, who have been impacted by Internet exploitation through the ICE (Internet Child Exploitation) Counselling Program. More information and how to self-refer to this program please click here.
I am also a registered provider for Veteran’s Affairs Canada. If you are a military veteran and have a “K” number, services may be covered for you.
How to Get Started
It’s simple! You share you’re ready for a session, and we get you booked!
Prior to starting all services a free consultation is provided to learn about what’s been going on and to share more about services and ensure it’s a fit.
You can get started with this by scheduling your initial phone consultation directly online or by calling, or emailing to schedule as well. Once we decide it’s a fit and you’re ready for an initial appointment you will be emailed three consent forms to complete online prior to your session. That email will also provide a summary of all the information needed to get ready for your first session and to make shift happen!
