Do you offer services Internationally?
Yes! I offer online Therapeutic Art Workshops and Non-clinical Art Therapy1:1.
What does non-clinical mean?
Due to the international relationship I will not assume the role of Therapist but instead offer you therapeutic art experiences as additional support to mental health resources you access in your home country
Please be aware that clients outside of Canada will NOT be covered by Third Party Insurance.
What will my first session be like?
Your first session will focus on creating an environment where we explore with different tools, ask questions and build relationship with each other. It is important to explore and find the right modality and therapist for you.
What is your registration number?
Registered Therapeutic Counsellor
Registered Art Therapist

Each individual plan is unique. Please check your coverage with me before your first session. ie: Plans that specify psychologist or social worker only are NOT covered.
Do you offer sliding scale?
Yes, a portion of my practice is reserved for sliding scale for short term counselling. 6 sessions at 30% off the currently advertised rate. Please contact me to have your name added to the waitlist. This is available for clients that have no other support services such as Third party Insurance
Will you re-open the Studio?
It is my goal to reopen to in-person once we have finished relocating to our new home. Join my newsletter to stay up to date!
How do you accept payment?
My preferred methods of payment
Credit card through your client portal
What ages do you see?
I would love to say ANY age but I find virtual meetings work best with ages 12+.
~Ages 5 and up in person.
How often should I come?
This depends on your goals. I recommend weekly sessions to begin so we can set a strong foundation to launch from then transition to every two weeks for slower sustained progress and monthly for maintenance. Some clients transition after reaching their goals to reconnecting during times of need or stress.
