This is therapy for lasting change.

At the heart of our therapy philosophy is you. We don't use a cookie-cutter approach. We help you build more adaptive coping mechanisms through a collaborative process.

Your active involvement in this process empowers you with choices, ensuring that the changes you experience are sustainable. We believe in creating an environment where you can better understand yourself. We have found that when people understand themselves better, they have more agency and a sense of control over their lives.

What’s Included for Individual Therapy:

Sessions

Therapy appointments are based on a 45 to 50-minute hour. They generally occur weekly but can happen more frequently or, in rare cases, less. It is our strong recommendation that sessions happen at a regular time frequency weekly for best results.

Fees

Costs vary depending on the clinician’s level of training and experience. Dr. Ferguson’s fees are $250/hour for individual therapy and $275/hour for couples therapy.

RP and RP(Q)* fees vary from $180-$210/hour for individuals and $200-$220/hour for couples.

*An RP(Q), or Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), has completed their Master’s program in a relevant field but is in a phase of qualifying, so a fully registered therapist supervises them.

We’ll look at your motivations, unravel recurring patterns, and develop personalized, adaptive coping mechanisms that work best for you.

Supervision & Consultation

Overcome therapeutic challenges and impasses.

Are you struggling with therapeutic complexities? Consultation can help guide you through the maze of transference and countertransference dynamics. Gain clarity and enhance your therapeutic effectiveness as you understand and navigate the nuanced relational pieces in your therapeutic work.


If you feel you’re missing something in your therapeutic approach or want to expand your ability to conceptualize and formulate your work, supervision or consultation that includes an integrated approach can be supportive and enlightening.

Research shows that psychodynamic therapy, which many clinicians including Jonathan Shedler, Nancy McWilliams, Otto Kernberg and Peter Fonagy champion, has lasting effects. Shedler's 2010 meta-analysis, "The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy," shows that it goes beyond treatment, leading to sustained, long-term improvements in personality functioning and overall well-being. This highlights the potential for meaningful and lasting changes in people.

How It Works

Therapy is a voluntary process, and although we encourage people to work through some kinds of discomfort, it is always up to their discretion whether or not to continue.

Get in touch through the button below, and we'll reach out to schedule a short call. During this call, we'll gather some information and answer any questions you may have. After that, we'll connect you with a therapist. They'll have 3-4 sessions with you to understand your needs and history. If you decide to continue, you'll work together until it's time to conclude your treatment.
