CONSULTATION

I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to answer any questions you may have about therapy, to discuss fees and policies, and to determine whether I am the right therapist to meet your needs.

COUPLE / FAMILY

In couple and family therapy, we will work collaboratively to explore relationship dynamics and core issues that may be interfering with healthy communication, transitions, intimacy, and/or closeness.

INDIVIDUAL

In individual therapy, we will work together to process distressing thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and experiences in a safe and supportive environment. I provide confidential, in-person counselling to adolescents (aged 14 and up) and adults.

PHONE / VIDEO

I can offer phone or video therapy sessions to individuals who cannot attend an in-person session. This service can ONLY be offered to clients currently residing in Ontario.

I can help you with...

  • depression

  • ​anxiety

  • stress management

  • relationship/interpersonal concerns

  • self-esteem

  • disability/illness-related concerns

  • family-of-origin healing

  • bullying

  • sexuality

  • eating disorders

  • grief and loss

  • suicidal thoughts/self-harm

  • academic/work-related issues

  • life stage transitions

  • pregnancy and postpartum mental health

 

I also offer supportive counselling to caregivers (i.e., family members, partners, friends, etc.) who are coping with the physical or mental-health related issues of a significant other.

Sessions

 

The frequency of our sessions can be tailored to meet your individual needs, however, most clients find meeting weekly or bi-weekly to be the most helpful.

 

Every session is confidential and at no point will any records be shared without your explicit written permission (unless there is a situation involving personal or public safety which requires disclosure by law). ​

 

​​Cancellation policy: Missed appointments and those cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged my regular session fee. 

​​Payment / Insurance

Fees are due at the start or end of a booked session. Payment is accepted via cash, credit card, or interac e-transfer.  A receipt will be issued at the time of payment.

 

Sliding scale: I can offer a reduced rate for individuals with limited financial resources, and to current students with a valid high school or post-secondary student ID card. Please contact me to learn more.

Psychotherapy services provided in a private practice setting are not covered by OHIP.  Many other extended health insurance plans offer partial coverage. Please check with your provider to determine if "psychologist" and/or "psychotherapist" coverage is available, details on claim procedure, and whether there is a need for a referral, as some insurers require a letter of referral from your family physician.
