Tailored to you

Individual therapy is so helpful for so many people because it’s the best way to get truly customized therapy. You control the pacing of your therapy, the methods used, the amount of analysis or feedback you can receive, and the timing of your sessions, you owe it to yourself to look into individual therapy. It can help you win against whatever you’re battling by putting a real expert in your corner. It can help you improve your everyday life and give you a tailored therapy experience.

Does insurance cover psychology services?


Psychology Services are covered by many health insurance plans and/or through employer flex benefits. The amount covered/available depends on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan. It is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?

Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?

Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?

Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

How do I prepare for the first session?

Congratulations on booking your first appointment. This is the first step toward feeling better. It is completely normal to feel excited, scared, anxious, uncertain, and/or any/all/none of the above. Making an appointment is a huge step and likely is one that you have been considering for a while.

To prepare for your first appointment there is nothing you HAVE to do. But taking some time to prepare and decide what is important to you will give both you and your therapist a solid starting point for you to get the most out of your therapy sessions.

Here are some suggestions to help you feel like you are ready to make the most of your first appointment.

PHONE CONSULT: Please feel free to ask for an initial phone consultation. Choosing a therapist is a big decision. A brief initial phone consult is not required but is available if you would find it helpful. Please keep in mind this initial consultation is not a therapy session. It is more like an introduction to ease your mind and ensure you feel comfortable. Here are some questions others have found helpful:

  1. How do you approach helping people?
  2. Do you have experience working with people who have concerns like mine?
  3. Do you make treatment plans? If you do, will I be involved in mine?
  4. What can I expect during our sessions?
  5. What will you expect of me?
  6. Will I have homework?

THINK ABOUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU” In the week before your appointment take some time to consider and/or write about (1) your background (eg., family situation, significant events, etc. (2) current concerns (3) what have you tried already (4) what prompted you to book a session now.

CLEAR SOME SPACE BEFORE AND AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT (15 minutes is ideal): This time allows you to get the most out of each session by helping you feel ready for your appointment and giving you time to reflect after your session.

MANAGE YOUR EXPECTATIONS: Therapy isn’t a quick fix. You likely won’t leave the first session feeling ‘cured’ BUT it is likely you will fee a sense of relief and direction. After a few sessions you should have a new understanding of your concerns, have a game plan and have a sense of hope

If you feel frustrated after three or four sessions, it’s okay to find a new therapist to work with. Please consider chatting with me. In my experience conversations about what is not working can be incredibly transformational for you and I can often help direct you to a different treatment or therapist that may be more helpful.

What happens in the first session

During your first session, your therapist may ask you to begin sharing your story and ask questions about the reasons you are seeking treatment. Your therapist may also want to know about how your problems are affecting your life and what your goals for the future are. You will also likely discuss aspects of treatment such as how often you will meet and how your treatment may change from one session to the next.

Virtual Therapy/Telehealth

Do you need support, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment? Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have the time to drive across town for an appointment? Do you live in a more rural area, or maybe you prefer to just do things Virtually? Virtual Therapy may be the solution you have been looking for. Virtual therapy allows us to provide therapy via live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere you have a computer or smartphone. It allows you to schedule an appointment directly online and have the entire therapy session take place digitally. While you don’t need a video camera, we do recommend you use one.

COVID safety precautions

The College of Alberta Psychologists is encouraging all Psychologists to exercise prudent judgement and diligence in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Mental health services are essential. However, it is not essential that all services be delivered face-to-face. Therefore, provision of face-to-face mental health services will be performed based on the risk management strategies recommended by the Chief Medical Officer of Health, work site policies and respect for the health and wellness of myself, my family and my clients.

Therefore, the risk-management strategies utilized are:

PRE-SCREENING for symptoms and current criteria outlined by Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer.

RAPID TESTING prior to in-person appointments.

NO WAITING ROOM will be available. The work site has requested each client text their clinician from their vehicle and, when advised, proceed to the door for accompanied admission to the building.




Given my role as a Health Psychologist I frequently have contact with people with compromised immune systems AND there is a history of immune difficulties present in my immediate family as well.

Your appointment may be CHANGED TO VIRTUAL IF:

  1. patient or practitioner experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19
  2. you or your practitioner has had cohort contact with COVID-19 positive case in last 14 days
  3. patient refuses or is unable to wear a mask
  4. COVID positive test result within 14 days

VACCINATION STATUS: I respect that vaccination is a highly personal medical decision and I truly respect your privacy and right to health autonomy. However, it is important that I exercise prudence and balance your needs/decisions with the risk-status of myself, my family, and my other patients.

Therefore, although health services are exempt from partaking in the Restrictions Exemption Program, for the health and well-being of myself, my family, my community and my other patients I respectfully request that you:

Request a virtual appointment if you are unable to or do not wish to vaccinate.

OR, if you desire an in-person appointment, I request you complete a Health Canada approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR, or lab based PCR test within 72 hours of your appointment time.

Individual Therapy

Do you think you could benefit the most from individualized attention? Are you hesitant to talk to others about your problems? Then individual therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking. In individual therapy you are the sole focus of a single therapist who helps you develop and achieve your goals for therapy.
