What happens during a therapy session?
The first few sessions will be spent on getting to know you. From there, we will collaboratively create a plan which will move you towards your hopes and goals in therapy. Sessions will include sharing thoughts, looking at different perspectives, sharing emotions, practicing skills and above all, stepping outside of your comfort zone. You will be supported along the entire process.
How do I know if we are a good fit?
A relationship with your therapist is important. A therapist supports you on building upon your inner strengths and skills to navigate through life’s storms. A common misconception is that a referral to therapy is required. You can set it up on your own and feel empowered in making the right decision for yourself. I want you to feel comfortable and safe with me. I offer a 15 minute phone consultation to new clients who may be curious or have questions.
How long is the therapy process?
This is completely based on individual circumstances and goals for therapy. During the first session, we will discuss the frequency that is best aligned with you. Typically, the start of therapy is scheduled with more frequent sessions. For some, therapy may be a shorter process to achieve immediate and specific goals. For others, with longer-standing issues or as part of their self-care routine may envision a longer therapy process.
What if I can't make my appointment?
I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy. I understand that life emergencies or challenges may arise; however, if your appointment is cancelled within the 24 hours there will be a charge.
What is your rate and coverage?
Individual sessions are $180 per 50 minutes and $250 for 90 minutes. Psychological services are covered by most Extended Health Care Plans. Certain companies may cover counselling by a R.S.W (Registered Social Worker). I am happy to share my registration number with you in order to ensure coverage. Please contact your insurance company to inquire regarding the terms of your policy.
What are your payment options?
I accept e-transfers, Mastercard, Visa, and American Express.
E-transfers are to be sent prior to scheduled appointment.
