How do I know you’re the right psychotherapist for me?
I offer a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to all potential new clients to determine if we’re the right fit for each other. There’s no obligation to continue therapy following this consultation.
Do I need a referral to use your services?
No referral is necessary to use my services. Simply contact me to begin the intake process.
What is your appointment availability?
I offer both daytime and limited evening appointments. My practice is closed on weekends.
How long is each session?
Each session is 50-minutes long, leaving time for me to complete notes after your appointment.
Do you offer in-person or virtual therapy?
Due to the ongoing pandemic, I currently offer all my therapy sessions via a secure online video platform or the telephone. In the future, I may consider offering my Toronto psychotherapy services in person again.
What are your fees?
The current fee for each session is $130 + tax, and is subject to change.
Does OHIP cover psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy services are not covered by OHIP. However, you can use the receipt I provide for income tax or benefit reimbursement purposes.
Would I be able to see you through my Employee Assistance Plan (EAP)?
Currently, I don’t offer my services through EAPs.
Does your practice offer a sliding scale?
I believe that psychotherapy should be available to anyone, regardless of financial constraints. I offer a sliding fee scale to a limited number of clients. Please contact me for more details.
How do I pay for your services?
I keep a credit card on file but accept payment by e-transfer as well.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations made within 24 hours of an appointment will incur a 50 percent charge. Missing an appointment without cancelling will result in a full charge of a session. I politely ask for a 24 hour notice if you need to cancel.
Can I call you if I’m currently experiencing a crisis?
I may not be immediately available to respond during a time of crisis. Visit your nearest hospital, call 911, or contact your local crisis centre.
