Counselling Services

Counselling sessions are 60 minutes in duration and are offered virtually or in-person to anyone 18 years of age or older. Single session counselling is available.


Fees are due in advance of the session. A sliding scale fee structure is available for students and seniors.  A free-of-charge 15-minute intake session is available to answer questions before booking a session.

Brightwater Counselling does not direct bill insurance companies but will provide a receipt for you to submit with your claim. Your insurance provider will be able to tell you if your plan covers counselling services.

If you have questions about the counselling process or you are ready to book a session, please send a message. I will be in touch as soon as possible.
