My work as a counsellor is trauma-informed, social-justice aware, and client-focused. I work a little differently with each client, but focus on empowerment, validation, and strengths. I believe in harm reduction and take a non-judgmental, non-shaming approach.
I strongly believe that cost should not be a barrier to getting counselling, that it's ridiculous that our healthcare system doesn't cover more of this, and that emotional and mental health should not be a luxury.
If you can't comfortably afford my regular rate, I work on a sliding scale and customize my fee based on individual need.
In order to continue offering flexible and sliding scale rates, I ask that clients pay as much of the regular rate as they comfortably can - if paying for therapy means being late on your electricity bill or skipping some grocery items, you're paying me too much. I will never ask you to verify or prove your financial means. Please reach out to me and we can figure out a rate that works for you.
I do not bill insurance providers directly, but some benefits cover RSW services, in which case you can most likely submit your receipt to be reimbursed.
