I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) practicing in Ontario that specializes in working with women during the perinatal (pregnancy and postpartum) period as well as other life stages , to help them feel more confident, fulfilled, and capable of living a life that feels health for their unique self. I believe that regardless of what obstacles we have faced in our lives, we are capable of growth and can evolve from past and present experiences to become a healthier individual.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are a number of benefits that can be attained from participating in therapy. The nature of the therapeutic relationship is collaborative to work to bring about positive change in the client’s thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning. Individuals usually seek psychotherapy when they are experiencing thoughts, feelings, moods and behaviours that are adversely affecting their day-to-day lives, relationships and the ability to enjoy life. Depending on each individual’s unique goals, therapists work to provide support to the client so that they can understand their problem or concern better and learn new skills and coping strategies to effectively manage potential problems presently and in the future. Some potential benefits of therapy may include:

  • Improved self-awareness and sense of well-being
  • Self-acceptance and self-compassion
  • Enhanced self esteem and body image
  • Ability to process emotions and feelings
  • More fulfilling relationships
  • Development of new coping skills and strategies
  • Positive behavioural changes
  • Improved overall mood

Unfortunately, psychotherapy fees are not covered under OHIP, however many health insurance plans do cover the costs of therapy services with a Registered Psychotherapist (RP).

I recommend checking with your insurance provider for additional information on the details of coverage options.
