When choosing a therapist, finding the right “fit” is important. Investing in your mental health is so valuable! I am happy to provide you with a 15 minute telephone consultation prior to any commitment to therapy. This consultation can be used to ask me any questions you may have about my services or my approach and get a sense if I am a good fit for you. Please reach out!
The 15 minute free consultation is intended to share information regarding services I provide and to give an opportunity for both of us to explore the possibility of an agreement for ongoing counselling services where appropriate. The agreement for counselling support does not take affect until your first scheduled session, the intake is completed and consents for service are reviewed.
About Online Counselling
Distance and accessibility are no longer barriers to receiving the help you need! Online therapy can provide all the same advantages of in person counselling while you stay in the comfort of your own home and maybe even in your PJ’s or comfy pants. Secure video therapy offers flexibility for counselling to occur from a space that feels safe and comfortable for you. There is no need to be concerned about travel time, parking fees or incremental weather. I use a secure online platform for counselling to ensure privacy and confidentiality which is compliant with Canadian Healthcare Privacy laws.
With this shift to a hybrid model of therapy, sessions can be online, by telephone or in person. This allows more flexibility to meet your needs. We can discuss the details of the modality you prefer during your initial consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
I provide counselling to individuals aged 16 and above. My rates for virtual and in person counselling are:
- $140 for individual session
- $210 for couple session
HST will be added to the fee.
Please cancel 24 hours prior to appointment. Last minute cancellations will be billed 50% of the session rate. No shows are billed for the full cost of session excluding medical emergencies.
Therapy is not covered by OHIP, check with your insurance carrier to clarify what coverage you have. Some questions to ask your insurance provider are:
- Do my benefits cover Social Work?
- What coverage amount do I get per session?
- Is there a limit to the number of sessions per year?
- If you have further questions please Contact me!
