Do you offer pro bono or sliding scale services?


I'm sometimes able to offer services at a lower rate/no cost to you in the following circumstances:

  • I'm an authorized provider of mental health counselling through the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA).  This means that if you're Indigenous we can apply for coverage through the FNHA.  They have programs for Indigenous people with and without status numbers.  If this applies to you, get in touch with me and we can talk details.

  • I'm an authorized counselling provider for BC's Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP).  This means that if you have been the victim of a crime and have been approved by CVAP for counselling coverage, they will cover a portion of your session fees with me ($95/session) up to a certain number of sessions.  I am sometimes able to offer a sliding scale for CVAP clients who are unable to cover the whole remaining balance of my fee.  Feel free to get in touch with me for more details. 

  • I hold a certain number of pay-what-you-can spots for clients who have experienced a traumatic birth and would not be otherwise be able to access counselling.  2SLGBTQIA+ and BIPOC people will be given preference for these spots, but everyone is welcome to apply.  If you'd like to be on the waitlist for one of these spots, send me an email briefly introducing yourself.

How do I book a session with you?


To book your first session with me, get in touch by phone - (250) 538-8777 - or email - - and we'll find a time that works for you.  Once we've connected, I'll set you up in my online booking system so you'll be able to book your own appointments at your leisure.

What if I'm not sure yet if I want to book a session?  What if I want to meet you first?


No problem.  I'm happy to book a 20 minute phone chat with you, free of charge, so you can hear my voice and ask any additional questions you may have before deciding whether to move forward or not.
