Counselling

My work as a counsellor is trauma-informed, social-justice aware, and client-focused. I adapt my clinical approach to best meet the needs of 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, and that emotional health should not be a luxury. 

If you cannot 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. I will never ask you to verify or prove your financial means. Please contact me to arrange a rate that works for you.

I do not bill insurance providers directly, but some benefits cover RSW services, in which case you may be able to have your fees reimbursed.
