FAQS

DO YOU WORK MAINLY WITH COUPLES?

As a couple therapist trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), my work is largely focused on couples, but I also value working with individuals.  With almost 40 years of research on the science of attachment and bonding, EFT is a proven evidence-based model for couple and individual therapy.  This empirically-proven model can help partners not only deescalate the negative patterns that have taken over their relationship but can also help them build stronger bonds that will last.

HOW MANY SESSIONS DO WE NEED?

Goals of therapy and the number of sessions depend on the circumstances of each individual or couple.  The focus is to not only find short-term resolution but to create lasting change to the long-term path of the relationship.  The goals of therapy will always be collaboratively reevaluated throughout therapy.

WHAT ARE THE INITIAL STEPS TO START?

After contacting me and you feel like there is a good connection, I will email you an intake form for you to fill out separately.  This form will have questions that will help me understand your needs better so we can begin our work.

DOES MY INSURANCE COVER THERAPY?

As a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #3164) licensed by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC), most insurance companies recognize this designation.  It is best for you to check with your service provider.

DO YOU OFFER ONLINE THERAPY?

Yes, I have shifted to online therapy this past year, and the clients that I see prefer the convenience of connecting from home to accommodate work and family schedules.  This has also allowed partners in long-distance relationships to seek out support.  Telehealth has not affected therapy outcomes nor compromised the therapist-client relationship.  Couples have shared that being at home has allowed them to feel safer to access their vulnerability -- to practice those missing conversations in the space where it's supposed to happen is a big advantage!  Evening and weekend times are available.
