Registered Counselling Therapist, Registered Professional Counsellor

Client-focused counselling conveniently located in Bedford, Nova Scotia. Special interests in depression, life challenges, men’s issues, and more. Counselling is also available for allied healthcare professionals (Doctors NS PSP, physicians, residents, veterinarians, technicians/assistants, dentists).

I work from a goal-oriented approach to help you achieve your personal goals and live a healthier life; this is why one of the first questions I ask is ‘What are you hoping to get out of therapy?’. It gives us a destination to work toward. I believe that counselling is a team effort; it is you and I against the problem as a team, you’re not alone.

Counselling is $110.00 per therapy hour (55 minutes in-session, 5 minutes for notes and file maintenance). You can pay by cash or e-transfer (e-transfer only for virtual clients).

After each appointment you will receive a digital receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. We do not do direct billing.
To lean more about fees, see informed consent.

Everything we talk about is confidential and private*. Without your written consent, I cannot disclose any information about you or your therapy, including to parents, partners, and employer. There are a few limits to confidentiality as required by law, which you can read about in the informed consent page.
