Counselling & Consultations

Our therapeutic relationship is key in developing a supportive space for you during our time together. Therefore, I believe that informing you of my fees, policies, and options are important to discuss prior to investing your time. I have provided some of the information below. This information will also be discussed in our initial appointment, along with my consent to service and confidentiality forms.

For more information about me, my perspective, and the therapeutic relationship, please review HERE.
