What to expect from your sessions with Rosa:
  • First Session: For couples and family counselling, I like to see all participants together for the first session. The first 10 minutes or so are used to go over and sign some forms about the service. The rest of the session will enable me to get a sense of what has brought you all to counseling and how I can help
  • Second and third sessions: After the first joint session, I like to have a separate session with each participant so I can get a more in-depth understanding of what is going on for each person
  • Subsequent sessions: all subsequent sessions will usually be joint sessions. My role in these sessions is to help all participants begin to find new ways to communicate, reach out and connect. 

  • $148 for a 60 minute session (applies to individuals, couples and families)
  • Services covered under many insurance companies and receipts will be provided
  • If you are covered by an EAP program, you may be able to access Rosa's services through your EAP coordinator at an alternate rate
