My standard rate is $120 for an 90-minute session.
However, I offer a lower rate to clients who are experiencing economic hardship or who are on a fixed income, on Disability Assistance or Employment Insurance. For these circumstances, my rate is on a sliding scale.
If you have insurance coverage for counselling, the following insurance providers have a relationship with ACCT (my professional organization):
Ele is an excellent therapist, guide and teacher. She has taught me that Relational Somatic Therapy is a finely tuned balance between focused talk therapy, mindfulness, safety focused exploration, and tuning into the healing wisdom of the mind and body. Ele helped me heal wounds that I had been experiencing as frequent nightmares. She masterfully guided me to explore, experience and describe the feelings within my body as well as explore the parameters surrounding these feelings and experiences. She then enabled me to find my strengths as well as guided me to reimagine and re-experience different scenarios (to the outcomes in my nightmares) at both a visceral, psychological and intellectual level. I am finally free of these nightmares. Ele also helped me to re-imagine a safer environment than the ones I experienced growing up.
After just three sessions with Ele, I gained deep insights into long-standing issues and felt lighter, freer and ready to move forward with my life. Her calm compassion and gift for deep listening let me hear my own heart-felt feelings, and constructively problem-solve from my own center.
Ele offers a safe haven for exploring deep issues in my life. Her confident, gentle approach helps me feel comfortable in our shared space, even when I don't feel comfortable with myself. Ele has a deep, calm and healing presence that is hard to find, it helps me go to places I would otherwise not have the courage to go. Thank you Ele.
I worked with Ele to break through personal barriers, both physical and emotional, and it has been beneficial in my development to know myself. Ele’s kind and reassuring presence allows for opportunities to explore deeper into who I am, discover and let go of that which does not serve me, while revisiting those memories of when I truly felt whole and loved. These are break through moments that imprint themselves in the body, mind and spirit.
If we decide to work together, I will email you an intake form that you will fill out and sign and then email back to me.
We schedule a time for our first appointment. After the appointment we decide what comes next.
In addition to in-person counselling (which I think is the best), I offer on-line counselling (when this is all that is available to you given where you are at).
You will need a phone/tablet/computer that has a good camera . I will connect with you in real time in any geographic area that has a good internet connection. Sessions are 90 minutes long.
Please email me so I can send you an intake form and to schedule an appointment- thank you.
