Individual Counselling

VIDEO SESSIONS | BRITISH COLUMBIA | REGISTERED CLINICAL COUNSELLOR

Hey! I’m Kate,

I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor in British Columbia.

I work with clients (mainly moms!) entirely online through video-based sessions, and I’m so grateful that technology allows us to connect in convenient, and effective ways!

Maybe you found me by chance, maybe you’re here from a friend’s referral or you saw me online … but whatever path you took to get here, I’m guessing you’re wondering if counselling would be helpful for you right now.

Here’s what I know for sure:

Motherhood is hard, quite possibly the hardest transition you’ll go through. So if you’re suffering, just know that you are far from alone.

I also know that we all need support.

Our cultural push to be-all-the-things and manage everything seamlessly is so unrealistic and causes a lot of pain.

And lastly, I know that connecting through video chats can feel incredibly meaningful, therapeutic, and supportive. The mom’s I work with tell me over and over again how they love skipping the logistical issues of booking and making it to an in-person session.

I’m so glad you’re here! Take a look through this page to learn more about how this might be a great fit for you.

COUNSELLING SPECIALIZATION

I primarily support moms (or pregnant women) in my practice, relating to their transition to motherhood and the multitude of challenges that can emerge during this time and the years that follow.

My areas of specialization are:

  • Postpartum anxiety and depression
  • Prenatal mental wellness
  • Other mood difficulties
  • Intrusive or scary thoughts
  • Relationship changes / challenges
  • Identity transitions
  • Birth trauma
  • Feeling blue, low, or uninspired
  • Fertility challenges and pregnancy loss
  • Managing life stress, changing roles, family dynamics
  • Grief and loss

 

If you find yourself extremely distressed, need urgent support, or are having intense thoughts of self-harm or suicide, please contact a crisis line or call 911 right away.

HOW DOES ONLINE COUNSELLING WORK?

Online counselling is similar to in-person counselling, we just meet online ???? Just click the button below to book your first session or a consult call. Once your account is set up, you can really easily book your appointments, enter your video sessions, and pay for your sessions.

You do not need to download anything. Just make sure you have an updated browser (Chrome works well) and a good internet connection.

Can I Use My Ipad Or Other Devices?

Ideally, you would use a laptop or computer, with a screen that’s big enough to see me well. However, a smartphone or tablet will work in a pinch. You’ll just need to download the Jane App from the app store if you plan on using one of those devices.

HOW DO BILLING, PAYMENT AND INSURANCE WORK?

I offer a 1-hour session for $135 (CAD). Video sessions are similar to in-person sessions, where you and I “meet” for 1 hour, and I spend at least that much time outside of your session planning, learning, and keeping progress notes.

You’ll receive an invoice after our session, and I ask that this is paid within 3 days. All payment information is kept for you in your online account (which you can access from my website).

You can make payments with e-transfer or with a credit card.

Many extended health benefit plans cover counselling from Registered Clinical Counsellors in BC. Make sure you check with your provider directly. I do not do direct billing.

I am registered with BCACC (British Columbia Association for Clinical Counsellors), and my RCC number is: 16514
