How I Can Help

My Approach

Those facing life challenges, including ADHD, depression, anxiety, and substance use, face different obstacles and have unique abilities. There is often no specific way to resolve our challenges and work through our struggles. It is why I am an integrative therapist; individuals benefit from an approach tailored to their goals and needs. My work centres on utilizing understandings from various modalities and uses skills training to promote change, shift perspectives, challenge assumptions, and develop skills to help clients strive to improve their situations. Our work together can assist you in overcoming challenges and developing more adaptive, helpful strategies for your life.

I am considered client-centred, strengths-based, solutions-focused, and trauma-informed, which informs much of my work. We would develop a treatment plan considering insights from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Emotions Focused Therapy (EFT) modalities.

We will work collaboratively to find the most valuable strategies and leverage your strengths in our approach to the therapeutic process. Often our lives change, our goals change, and we will adjust organically to work on the most pressing concerns we agree to address together.


Investigating therapy is the first step to working on your healing, growth and development as a person. It takes courage to reach out for assistance when facing challenges. In working with one another, you can shift from surviving your challenges to thriving despite them. 

This is the beginning of change for you.

What I Can Help With

We all struggle, and we ultimately arrive at a moment of choice. Do we reach out for help in overcoming the challenges we cannot overcome, or do we stay stuck and struggling? Reaching out for support can be essential in improving the quality of our life. I have provided support for various challenges, including but not limited too:

ADHD and other Neurodiversity
Stress (Management, Coping, life transitions, Loss, Resilience)
Mental health (Depression, Substance Use, Anxiety)
Life Skills ( Communication, Relationships, Boundaries, Habits)
Self-Concepts (Esteem, Acceptance, Compassion, Worth)
Personal Growth and Development (Career guidance, Awareness, flexibility)

Clients often arrive with intertwined challenges that impact each other. Working our life challenges alone can be daunting. Give yourself credit for getting this far. If support is needed, feel free to reach out to see if we can work together.
I look forward to connecting with you.

“To progress again, man must remake himself. And he cannot remake himself without suffering. For he is both the marble and the sculptor. In order to uncover his true visage he must shatter his own substance with heavy blows of his hammer.”

Alexis Carrel

You’ve made it this far; if you are interested in connecting to explore the opportunity of working together, here are the steps to follow:

Step One: Make the connection! You can contact me via phone or email for a telephone consult, or set up a virtual consult through the OWL portal below and meet via video to discuss your current needs and goals. Let’s connect for 15-20 minutes and see if we are a positive match to work together.

Step Two: If meeting virtually for a free consult or you have had a telephone consult and are choosing to start therapy with me, you will be required to set up an OWL Practice Profile (Click on the Link to Portal Below)

Step Three: Once set up in OWL Practice, you can book your appointments in the time slots I have available for free consultations or as a registered client, you will be able to book and cancel appointments via the portal.

N.B. Individuals are asked to sign a cancellation policy that outlines the expectations around cancellations.

Currently, Sessions are held virtually via OWL Portal or telephone.

Please reach out if there is a preferred date/time not currently available, and I can see if I can accommodate it. Those new to the service can book a consult through the portal.

OWL Practice has an option to private message me, which is secure and aligns with Privacy Health and Information Protection ACT (PHIPA) guidelines. You can use this to send messages, and please only do not expect to receive a prompt response; I am not always online.

Note: You can call me directly to request a consult via telephone.

Therapy is not a substitute for crisis services.

If you are in crisis now or in the future, don’t hesitate to contact crisis services in your area, go to your nearest emergency room or dial 911 for immediate assistance. 

There are documents to review and provide consent to, including a Privacy Health and Information Act (PHIPA) Consent, Service Agreement and 24hr Cancellation policy. Other documents may be required and are completed on an as-needed basis.

Fees and Payment Structure

My standard fee for individual therapy sessions is $135 per 50 min session. I do not want finances to be a barrier to getting the services you need, and we can discuss a sliding scale fee. (See below)

Sliding Scale Fees:

We have limited spots for therapy services for those facing economic adversity. Sliding Scale Fees are available based on client needs. We re-evaluate the sliding scale free after an agreed amount of sessions. Please email me if you require a sliding scale fee to see if I can accommodate the request.

Please note: I cannot guarantee that a sliding-scale spot will be available.

Be aware that services provided by Registered Social Workers (RSWs)/ Therapists are not covered by Ontario Health Insurance (OHIP). Some insurance plans cover them.

For some individuals, your extended health benefit plans through your employer will cover some or all the cost of your service. Don’t hesitate to contact your insurance company and inquire whether counselling services provided by a Social Worker / Therapist (MSW RSW) are covered and your approved coverage rate.

Fee payment options: Interact E-Transfer, Credit Card (Via Secure Portal), or direct billing insurance companies with which I am qualified to file claims.

Note: You can use an issued receipt for each session for insurance or income tax purposes.

When you file your income tax return, Counselling / Psychotherapy services provided by Registered Social Workers (RSW) are claimable as a medical expense tax deduction. Consult your accountant for more information.
