Frequently Asked Questions

Are you accepting new clients?

At this time my practice is full and I am only accepting clients for my wait list. Please contact me to reserve a spot on the wait list. 

How long does therapy take?

That answer depends on you and your personal goals. I offer single session, short-term (2-8 sessions) or long-term (9+ sessions) service based on your preference.

Each session lasts for 1 hour. 

What is the cost of service? Do you offer sliding scale rates?

The cost of service is $120 for 1 hour of individual psychotherapy. 

However, I do reserve a limited number of spots in my practice for sliding scale rates based on financial need. I am sensitive to the fact that therapy can be costly and not accessible to all people. Contact me to discuss a rate that is feasible for you. 

Are your services covered by OHIP?

No, my services are not covered by OHIP. However, many insurance plans will cover all or a portion of the cost. Check that your insurance plan lists Social Work as a covered benefit.

I don't have experiences of trauma or abuse, can you still help me?

Yes, although my specialization is in trauma and abuse, I still do work with people over a variety of issues and concerns. I have broad mental health training focused on emotions, thoughts, behaviours and interpersonal relationships, among others. Please contact me to discuss your situation and goals for therapy.

How does payment work?

I accept cash, cheque, e-transfer or credit card at the conclusion of each session. I provide detailed receipts for you to submit to your insurance plan, should you have it. 

For virtual sessions, payment by e-transfer is required and your receipt will be sent by email. 

I have some more questions, how can I contact you for more information?
