A space for telling your narrative, and for it to be witnessed.

Curious dialogue and explorations that move you closer to feeling a sense of stillness and relief, a more authentic self-understanding, and being in touch with your internal experience await.

online therapy in Toronto & the rest of Ontario.

My practice is eclectic & trauma-informed. I draw on Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as we tend to your behaviours, emotions, and thoughts. Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Narrative Therapy find their way into our work as we explore the values that ground and guide your navigation of the world, and as you construe meaning and a cohesive storyline that moves you forward. This versatility helps better tend to your unfolding experience and needs.

frequently asked questions

I only offer online therapy and counselling via videoconferencing.

The total fee for a 50-minute session of individual psychotherapy is $170. Fees are payable at the end of each therapy session by a credit card that is kept on file.

Every insurance plan is different in terms of coverage. Clients should verify with their insurance provider whether psychotherapy services offered online/virtually by a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) are covered and the level of coverage for such services.

Please note, I do not offer direct billing. At the end of each session, however, I provide a receipt that you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.

The course of therapy will vary from person to person. Some prefer to come on a weekly or biweekly basis for supportive therapy and ongoing processing. Some may be looking to work within a fixed timeframe on specific goals. And others may start off on a weekly basis to tend to pressing circumstances and then switch frequency. We can certainly collaborate to figure out what suits you best.

I highly recommend scheduling a 15-minute consult prior to booking a full intake session as it offers an opportunity to start exploring fit, guide you through next steps, and go over administrative matters.
