FAQs about Online Therapy

Online Therapy FAQsOnline Therapy for Individuals + Couples

What is confidential?
Almost everything you share is private and protected both legally and ethically. Even if a close friend or family member were to contact me and ask about you, I would not disclose that I even know you. Information will only be legally divulged under 4 circumstances: 1) I have reason to believe that you are in imminent danger of harming yourself or another person; 2) I am subpoenaed by a judge; 3) You reveal to me that you know of specific cases of either child or elder abuse occurring; 4) I have your written consent.
What does therapy cost?
Therapy generally consists of between one or two, regular, 50-minute sessions per week over a period of weeks, months or years. Deep work cannot be achieved by rushing. Twelve sessions are equivalent to a weekend workshop, or a full year is equivalent to an intensive 10-day seminar. Therapy is considerably cheaper than a holiday (often seen as a solution to distress) and it may provide longer lasting benefits. Learning to navigate and understand your interior world is a process of commitment and an investment in your long-term health and well-being.
Do you do testing?
Yes, I do testing to gain insight into an individual's personality—for example, in schema therapy modality to discover patterns of behaviour and in career assessments. For more specific testing, I can refer you to clinicians who specialize in neuropsychological assessments.
Do you work with couples and other relationship types?
Yes, I do work a lot with couples—whether it is to help rekindle the depth of love and trust in a long-standing relationship, or to assist in establishing a sense of security and understanding in a new relationship. I may be asked about renewing existing bonds (to renew trust, love, safety, and respect after infidelities) and I may facilitate more personal, effective, and respectful breakups of couples who have decided to either divorce, separate, or disengage in some way.
What are the major modalities are in Creative Process Therapy?
Postmodern Gestalt Therapy
Postmodern Gestalt therapy is an existential/experiential form of psychotherapy that emphasizes creative adjustment, and focuses upon the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist-client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
ACT is an empirically-based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies mixed in different ways with commitment and behaviour change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.

Schema Therapy + Transactional Analysis
These therapies were developed for use in treatment of personality disorders and chronic Axis I disorders, such as when patients fail to respond or relapse after having been through other therapies (for example, traditional CBT). Schema Therapy is an integrative, 21st-century psychotherapy synergistically and systematically combining theory and techniques from previously existing therapies. Transactional Analysis is an older version of Schema Therapy; however it has a broader base of assumptions and models which are also useful to consider.

Short-Term Psychodynamic Therapy
Short-term dynamic psychotherapy applies psychoanalytic principles to define and understand the dynamics and problems that clients bring to the therapy session. The aim of this approach is to uncover the feelings or thoughts that interfere with a client's relationships, communication, and daily functioning.

Meditational Practices
These practices, originally derived from the non-religious side of Buddhist teachings, include techniques designed to promote relaxation and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness.

Drama Therapy
Drama Therapy is the use of dramatic techniques to facilitate personal growth and promote mental health. Drama Therapy exists in many forms and can be applicable to individuals and couples.

Art Therapy
Art Therapy combines visual art and psychotherapy in a creative process using the created image as a foundation for self-exploration and under-standing. Thoughts and feelings often reach expression in images rather than in words.

Spirituality Focused Therapy
If the client wishes, this approach can address the integrated nature of the mind, body and the elusive "soul". Most therapists choose to bypass spirituality, the divine, and the soul, and yet, this work can be an important component of our work together—even to those who claim to have limited views on spirituality benefit from this work.
Do you work with children and teens?
No. I only work with clients 19+ who are serious enough to engage in psychotherapy.
