Sessions Structure & rates
Where to start - New Clients
We start with a 30 minute phone or online consultation. During this consultation you get to ask any questions you may have. We will discuss your situation and how I may be abe to support you. I want to make sure we are a good fit, and that the work I do is right for you.
The length of treatment is determined on a case by case basis. The average couple may be in counselling for 6 - 12 sessions, which is considered short-term therapy in this field. Couples struggling with childhood trauma, PTSD, or an affair may require more sessions.
With most new clients, we begin with three 90 Minute sessions - this gives you a chance to see how I work, to put new tools into practice and it's often enough time for you to start noticing a difference in your life and your relationships. It also gives me the time to understand your needs better and come up with a plan for moving forward.
In-Person or Online support
I’m flexible in creating a session plan that fits with your schedule. I am based in Calgary, Alberta and currently only offer online sessions via Zoom. Like in-person counselling sessions, online sessions offer comfort and confidentiality without having to negotiate city traffic, nor add travel time into your day, and, sessions occur in the privacy of your own home.

Cancellations or Appointment Changes
I request a minimum of 24 hours notice of cancellations or appointment time changes. I get that that emergencies occur in our lives, and that the 24 hour notice may, at times, not be possible. Please notify me as soon as possible under these circumstances.
If your therapy is covered by an insurance policy, clients pay the fee and then seek reimbursement from the insurance company. Please make sure that your policy covers counselling or clinical counselling. I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor. If you have a flexible insurance plan or employee directed benefits, these sessions are often covered under coaching or personal growth/wellness category.
Some plans only cover psychologists or a registered social workers and I am neither. Some work on a case-by-case basis and I'll be happy to work with you and send a letter to your insurance provider to see if they could get your sessions covered.
Please check with your insurance provider before making any assumptions on coverage.
