Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a cancellation policy?
I am committed to providing every clients with exceptional care. When a client cancels without giving enough notice, it prevents another client from being seen. For this reason, I require 48 hours notice for cancellations or rescheduling. However, unexpected circumstances happen and I am happy to discuss these on a personal basis. My policy is the full fee of the session is charged for missed appointments or late cancelation.
Running late? Please contact me. I will do my best to give you the full hour, however your session will be shortened if there are other clients after you.
Are sessions covered by benefits?
Many extended health benefit plans (e.g. Blue Cross, Sunlife, ManuLife, Great West Life, etc.) will reimburse for the services of a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC). I am certified as a RCC. If your plan covers for counselling or psychotherapy services, you will pay for the cost of the session in full. Then submit the receipt to your extended health care provider for reimbursement.
How often are the sessions?
Weekly therapy sessions are recommended, especially in the early stages of the psychotherapy process. However, therapy is collaborative work. Together, we will discuss the schedule that best benefits you.

What to Expect
01 – FIRST STAGES
Through our first few sessions, I am taking the time to unpack my clients’ reality and motif of consultation gently. These first sessions are fundamental because therapeutic work can only happen if there is a sense of comfort and trust in the room. While learning about my clients, I assess the situation, the presence of emotional patterns, recurrent challenges and clients’ strengths. I call this first stage de-escalation as we are looking to frame and identify the negative cycle that keeps individuals and couples stuck. At the end of this stage, clients begin to recognize their cycle as the enemy of their situation – are capable to step out of the cycle as it happens – express hope – and show openness to their partner or other individuals in their life.
02 – MIDDLE STAGES
During the second stage, clients begin to feel the benefits of the therapy. Individuals and couples can now access and engage with their emotional experience. Emotions are no longer foreign or frightening. The focus on this stage is restructuring the bond within oneself or between the partners. Clients describe it as the opening phase through which their fears are no longer triggering. They can be responsive and emotionally engaged with one another in a more natural manner. An inner sense of peace and bonding events mark the transition toward the third stage.
03 – ENDING STAGES
With the need for closeness being restored, clients are consolidating their therapeutic gain. They enact new positions in their ways of living and engage in constructive cycles with others, including their partner. The end of the final stage is no better to describe by the ability to turn towards a significant other in time of need with ease and comfort. In addition, couples are offering mutual support to each other and shape new solutions to pragmatic issues.
