Professional and secure online therapy for folks navigating religious deconstruction and the effects of adverse religious experiences and spiritual abuse.
We work with people who have been raised in an unhealthy religious or belief system and experience a gap between who they know they are internally, and who they feel able to portray within their society or community.

What to Expect
We are an every-day, down-to-earth people and we avoid top-down relationships, admit to our own shortcomings, and meet our clients on a personal, human level.
We are built for connection; when we truly experience healthy connection and community, so much can change and be restored.
We are life-long learners and hold a strong curiosity about the world and believe in “further up and further in.”
We believe in the ‘village’ and we highly value collaboration with others whose work intersects with ours, whether other mental health professionals, artists, faith leaders, NGOs, and more.
we highly respect the autonomy of our clients and their process, and hold space for all individuals, regardless of religion, sexuality, gender, age, or ethnicity.
We are trustworthy and we do what we say that we will do.
Yes, we use only HIPAA compliant, secure technology for our sessions and the storage of our notes. Confidentiality is of top importance and we do everything in our power to make sure this is the case, especially through the internet. If you would like more information about which specific programs we use, we are happy to answer any questions!
Within Canada, we can see clients who are located in all provinces and territories, except for Quebec (due to provincial regulations).
Technology offers a lot of flexibility and many of our clients live all over the world, especially in the Middle East. We have to follow the regulations for counsellors/therapists in the country where each client is located. Unfortunately, due to this, we are unable to see clients who are in the US.
However, if you are from or located in a country where we have never seen a client, we are happy to do research on the regulations in that country as part of deciding whether we are a good fit.
Although some Canadian and international insurance companies cover our services, we are not officially part of any insurance panels and cannot guarantee coverage. It is the client's responsibility to determine whether they have coverage or not. We highly recommend reaching out to your insurance company before starting therapy.
Additionally, we do not provide direct-billing to insurance companies. Regardless of whether your insurance covers our sessions or not, it is the expectation that all fees be paid up front and a receipt will be issued after each session for possible reimbursement.

That's no problem! We offer a free 20 minute consultation without any pressure to book a session afterwards. It is really important to us that both you and your counsellor feel good about working together.
Each clinician draws from approaches that align with how they naturally work as counsellors and with the training that they have received. You can see the individual approaches under 'Booking Details' for each clinician.
If you aren't sure about which approach(s) might serve you best, we recommend that you fill out a Counselling Inquiry Form and we will match you with the clinician who is most likely to be a good fit. You also have an opportunity to do a free consultation before deciding to start counselling. This is a great time to ask any specific questions that you might have about the counsellor's approaches.
