FAQ

Do I have to lie down to do ESM?

Lying down on the Energy table represents a type of “surrender” to the process, which enables the development of a fuller body awareness of what is happening. If you are reluctant to lie down, it suggests that you are not fully open to the process. which in turn, interferes with healing and self-change. If you don’t feel comfortable lying on the energy table, it is best that you seek assistance with another therapist until you are more open and ready for ESM.

Do I need a referral from my doctor to see you?

No, you are welcome to contact me yourself. It’s up to you to decide whether or not you want to inform your doctor that you are seeing me.

How confidential is what I say to you in therapy?

I take the issue of client confidentiality very seriously. I keep all information shared with me confidential, unless I am given your written authorization to do otherwise. The only exception would be a situation in which I had reason to believe that you might pose a threat to yourself or another person.

What is your fee?

Fee for Individual Therapy: My fee is currently $190 per 60 minute session. Most individual therapy clients benefit from a 90 minute session (for a reduced rate of $225) which allows for more time for both discussion and Energy Work. My fees compare favourably with the fee guidelines of the British Columbia Psychological Association which recommends $200 for a 50 minute therapy hour.

Fee for Couples Therapy: I generally see couples for 90 minute sessions, which allows for deeper work wherein new skills can be practiced and both voices can be fully heard. The fee for a 90-minute couples session is $225. Additional time, if warranted, is pro-rated in 15 minute units.

Healthcare Insurance: You may be covered by an extended benefits plan. My fees are tax deductible under the medical portion of one’s income tax. My fees are exempt from GST.

Payment Methods: I accept cheques, cash and E-Transfer from on-line banking. I do not accept credit or debit cards.

You say you are a feminist therapist. Does that mean you don’t work with men?

On the contrary, I enjoy working with men as they constitute a significant portion of my caseload. Moreover, because of my knowledge of the gender differences between the psychological development, socialization and, thus, life experiences of men and women, I have found my orientation as a “feminist therapist” to be well-received and effective in my therapeutic work with male clients.
