How do I know you're the right therapist for me?
You don't. That's why I suggest that you schedule a free consultation with me, and we can see if we're a good match for each other.
Do you provide video and phone sessions?
I provide video sessions on a safe platform. I generally do not offer phone sessions, but we can discuss this option to see if it can work out. Due to COVID-19, I am not providing in-person sessions.
How much do therapy sessions cost?
Each session is 50 minutes long, for $225. My services are not subjected to HST taxes, so $225 is the final cost.
The fee covers a variety of things: our time together, required administration and documentation, research and continuing education, as well as clinical consultation.
Why is the session not 60 minutes long?
It is not a full hour because I use the 10 minutes after sessions to prep, and to make sure my body and mind is fresh and ready for my session with you. In my experience, this makes our time together more productive and helpful for you.
When are you available for sessions?
At the moment, I have spots open on Sundays and Mondays.
Do you accept insurance?
Most extended health benefits or employee benefits do cover my services. Please check with your insurance provider to see if they cover social worker services. After each session, I send you a receipt that you can use for your claim. I am however, not covered by OHIP.
What forms of payment do you take?
I accept etransfer and cash as forms of payment
What should I expect in the first visit?
The first session is a bit different from other sessions. It will be our first introduction. We will go through some paperwork, and discuss how the information is kept and safeguarded.
We’ll take some time to get to know each other, and talk about your goals for therapy, and what you expect out of our time together. We will discuss the process of therapy, and you can ask me any questions you have about the process and what it is like to work with me.
I think you're a great fit for someone I know. How do I refer you to them?
If you have any other questions that are not covered here, feel free to contact me to schedule a free phone consultation.
