SERVICES I OFFER
INTRODUCTORY CONTACT - NO COST
Prior to beginning therapy, I offer a free 20-minute phone conversation to introduce ourselves to each other, to determine your therapeutic goals, and to ensure we are a good “fit” given your goals. Please e-mail me to arrange a time for us to connect via phone.
INDIVIDUAL THERAPY - $125 (50 MINUTES)
I provide assessment and treatment for eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and general mental health concerns for children, adolescents, and adults. Sessions are individualized and based on clients’ needs and goals. Please note, if you are seeking out eating disorder treatment, I recommend that you receive a nutritional assessment from Registered Dietitian Michelle Johnson (Guelph) or Suzanne Dietrich (Kitchener-Waterloo). Michelle and Suzanne have experience working with eating disorders.
FAMILY-BASED THERAPY - $150 (60 MINUTES)
Family-based Therapy (FBT) is the recommended treatment model for various eating disorders. FBT typically lasts 6-12 months in duration, with sessions weaning off as families move through three phases. Phase 1: Refeeding/normalization/exposure of meals, Phase 2: Returning developmentally appropriate control of meals, and Phase 3: Establishing healthy autonomy and any additional concerns.
Please note: You must have a medical practitioner following your child/loved one's health.
PARENT COACHING: EMOTION-FOCUSED FAMILY THERAPY SKILLS-BASED APPROACH - $160/HR**
Parents and caregivers are vital to the recovery of their loved one. Often times, I see the loved one in individual treatment who has little motivation for recovery. I offer EFFT sessions for parents who have a child with a mental health concern or struggling with communication with their children. This is particularly helpful for parents who have a child who is refusing treatment or a parent who is struggling with supporting their child's emotion regulation. This service is applicable for children across the lifespan (parents of young or adult children). EFFT is typically 6 sessions in duration, with three core sessions and 3 booster sessions.
**The first 3 sessions may last up to 2 hours.

CLINICAL CONSULTATION - $105 (50 MINUTES)
I provide clinical consultation using an emotion-focused lens, for therapists and front-line workers who are employed in the field of mental health and health services. Consultation will focus on clinical blocks through an Emotion-Focused Therapy standpoint, as well as the use of reflexivity around the therapeutic "self". Additionally, case collaboration and session planning are also offered. Sessions typically last 50 minutes. Supervision is offered in-person or through video.
