Frequently Asked Questions

General FAQs

Why is your name Red Bridge?

I love the colour red and I love the symbolism of bridges. Red is such a bold and passionate colour and I’ve always loved it. Bridges are just…cool. Bridges are how we get over obstacles, and I feel like that’s a good metaphor for therapy. You’ll find out that I love a good metaphor!

Is Kristeen the only therapist at Red Bridge Counselling?

Yes! Kristeen is the owner of Red Bridge. She has had other therapists working with her in the past, but she really loves keeping things simple. Red Bridge Counselling is not a giant operation – it’s a small business and she believes it’s important to know and care for each client personally. She has worked with amazing therapists over the years and loves to refer clients to other professionals if she isn’t the right person for the job.

What services do you provide?

I do individual therapy for adults. This can be online or in person. I also do mental health talks for businesses.

Are you covered by insurance?

Great question! I am covered by many insurance benefit plans, but not all. It’s best to check with your insurance provider about your specific plan.

What is therapy like?

Psychotherapy is a very unique experience. You’ll sit down to talk with Kristeen about your individual challenges and struggles. Together you’ll come up with a plan to help you achieve your goals. Kristeen is non-judgmental and very welcoming, so over time the goal is that you’ll feel comfortable sharing things with her that are difficult to share with others. Kristeen’s goal is to help you recognize your own strengths and your ability to improve your life.
