How to choose a counsellor:

Effective therapy requires a good fit between you (the client) and the counsellor you choose. What determines a good fit? Things like: the counsellor’s experience and counselling style, the combination of the two personalities, and your readiness to explore issues. There are also very practical concerns like cost, location, and office hours.

I have a few sliding-scale spots available in my practice. My usual hourly rate is $100 for one-on-one counselling and $120 for couple counselling. Since COVID, I have been working virtually and will continue to do so; I no longer offer in-person sessions. My ‘office’ is open Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00 – 6:00.

My clients are primarily members of the LGBTTQ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, queer). I also see gay-positive heterosexual people.

I encourage you to shop around for a counsellor…make a few phone calls and ask questions. Be clear about what you would like to work on. Narrow down your choice to at least three counsellors and then take advantage of ‘free consultations’ to find the best counsellor for YOU.

I’d be happy to answer your questions and/or set up a free consultation.
