It takes courage to call for an appointment and even more to walk through the door of a counselling office. Dr. Gail helps to reduce the anxiety by providing a calming and relaxing office. Some clients report that it is like sitting in a living room talking with someone who is willing to listen without judgement. The first session includes some paperwork, includes discussion of confidentiality, your goals, and contact information. The rest of the session is about getting to know you, relevant history, what you would like to achieve, and how we can make that happen.
It is about making a plan that is realistic for you, not the therapist.
That's why Dr. Gail uses several different types of therapy models - there is no one method that works for every situation or person. Its difficult to say how many sessions are required for an issue. However, practicing skills learned during session may help the number of sessions required. It is about trusting the process and be willing to take the risk of being vulnerable during sessions.
The cost of individual counselling is $220 per 50 minute session. Payment can be made after each session by cash, debit, mastercard, or visa. Many will have extended health care coverage that may cover or partially cover the cost of your counselling.
Dr. Gail can be reached by calling 403-527-3936. A confidential voice mail can be left if she is not available.
