common questions

Therapy, also known as counselling or psychotherapy, is a collaborative process between a trained therapist and a client. The aim is to address emotional, psychological, or behavioral challenges and work towards personal growth and well-being. During therapy sessions, clients can openly discuss their thoughts, feelings, and concerns in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Therapists utilize various therapeutic techniques and approaches tailored to each individual’s needs to explore underlying issues, develop coping strategies, gain insight, and foster positive change.

Therapy sessions typically last around 60 minutes, though the duration can vary depending on the therapist’s approach and the specific needs of the client.

I am certified and approved by multiple insurance companies; however, please note that I do not offer direct billing services for insurance providers. If your insurance plan covers RTC counselling, you can submit your receipts for reimbursement. Below is a list of insurance providers that typically cover my counselling services:

  • Alberta School Employee
  • Canada Life | Great-West Life
  • Equitable Life of Canada
  • Green Shield Canada
  • iA Financial Group
  • Manitoba Blue Cross
  • Pacific Blue Cross
  • SunLife

Feel free to check with your insurance provider to confirm the coverage details and reimbursement process for our services. I am committed to helping you access the support you need, and I’m happy to assist with any questions you may have regarding insurance reimbursement.

The frequency of therapy sessions varies depending on your circumstances and therapeutic goals. In the beginning, sessions might be more frequent (e.g., once a week) to establish a strong therapeutic relationship and address immediate concerns. As progress is made, sessions might become less frequent, transitioning to bi-weekly or even once a month.

Finding the right therapist is crucial for a successful therapeutic experience. It’s essential to consider factors such as the therapist’s qualifications, specialization, approach to therapy, and personal compatibility. I offer a free initial consultation, which can be an opportunity to discuss your concerns, ask questions, and gauge how comfortable you feel with the therapist.

The number of therapy sessions required varies greatly depending on your individual needs and goals. Some clients may find significant progress in a few sessions, while others might benefit from longer-term therapy. I will collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan and regularly assess your progress to determine the most appropriate duration of therapy.

Between the Vines Counselling is located at 339 Fairview Road in Oliver BC, Canada. Online counselling sessions are also offered where I can assist clients anywhere around the world.

Confidentiality is a critical aspect of therapy. In general, therapists are bound by ethical and legal guidelines to keep the content of therapy sessions confidential. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. Therapists may be required to break confidentiality if a client poses a threat to themselves or others, or if there are suspicions of child or elder abuse. Additionally, therapists may consult with colleagues or supervisors for professional development purposes while ensuring the client’s anonymity.
