No-Fee 20 minute Consultation


I offer a free 20 minute phone meeting to anyone interested in seeing me. This gives you an opportunity to ask me any questions that would help you begin to decide whether I’m the right counsellor for you.

It also gives me an opportunity to find out a little about the issues you wish to address in counselling. 

If I feel that I do not have the training or experience to help you I will let you know and do all I can to refer you to someone who can help you.I have access to an office I am able to see client in-person on Saturdays from 9am-4pm.  I also am able to see clients virtually or by phone if they prefer.  


Counselling Fees


The fee for 60 minutes of counselling service is $123.81 plus 5% GST (for a total of $130.00). This amount is to be paid just prior to each counselling session unless another arrangement has been agreed upon. Receipts will be issued at the end of each session, unless a third party is paying for the services and requires direct billing (i.e., Crime Victim Assistance).  The fee for 75 minutes of couples counselling services is $142.86 plus 5% GST (for a total of $150.00).

The session fee pays for 60 minutes of direct counselling services ( or 75 minutes for direct couples counselling services ), time spent preparing paperwork and research related to referrals or counselling issues, professional consultation necessary to provide the best service possible, training to continue to provide current best therapy practices, administrative costs related to counselling services, and costs related to other functions of professional practice (registration fees, liability insurance, rent, internet, hydro, etc.).


Sliding Scale Options


I do provide sliding scale options in consideration of social barriers that can make it challenging to access private practice counselling services including factors such as : financial hardships, members of 2SLGTBQ+ and BIPOC ( Black, Indigenous and People of Colour ) community, refugees and/or refugee claimants, as well as people with disabilities.
