Do you accept my insurance plan?
While I do not offer direct billing, some insurance providers may cover my counselling therapy services. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). Every provider is different so check the fine print in your plan. I will issue you a receipt specifying that I am a Psychotherapist with a Masters degree. The receipt also indicates that I am a member of CCPA (#10001876).

 

When do you have appointments?

I have daytime appointments Tuesday through Saturday

 

What is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)?

While it does look strange in action, it is a type of therapy that helps the brain make sense of information in new ways. While EMDR is best known for alleviating the distress associated with trauma, it can be a helpful intervention for many issues that cause emotional distress. For more information, check out my EMDR pageEMDR Canada, or EMDRIA 

 

Do you use other techniques besides EMDR?

Yes! Depending on the needs of each client, I draw from various modalities in addition to EMDR including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Ego States therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Coherence Therapy.

 

What type of clients do you work with? Ages/demographics?

I work with adult clients. Although I am trained in couples therapy, I am not taking couple clients at this time.

Can you help me with (fill in the blank)?
I have experience working with various client concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma, family and peer relationship issues, and stress related to life transitions. If you are wondering whether I can help you with a specific concern, please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

I have never been to a therapist/counsellor before. What can I expect in the first session?
It can take a lot of courage to make that first appointment. My hope is that you will feel comfortable and that counselling will be a positive experience for you.

The first session is an opportunity for us to connect and to talk about what has been happening in your life. You will also have the chance to ask me any questions that you might have. At some point during the first session, I will ask you about your goals for counselling. These goals will help us stay on track in future sessions.

 

I see that you graduated from a seminary program. Do you integrate faith into your counselling approach?

My clients come from a variety of backgrounds and I use mainstream therapy techniques that are common to the field of counselling psychology. If clients want, faith can become a topic to explore in relation to the issues at hand. I do not discuss faith in the counselling room unless the client initiates this discussion, or indicates on their intake form that religion/faith is an important part of their life or is relevant to their presenting concern.
