Frequently Asked Questions

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 $140 + 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.
