Frequently Asked Questions:

 How long are sessions?

All sessions are 50 minutes in length.

 How often should I come?

Ideally, it is recommended that you come once a week in the beginning, so that you can get into the momentum of changes and then switch to less if you wish.

 How many sessions will I need?

It’s impossible to predict how long you will be in therapy once you begin. For some, a short period is all they need, for others, therapy process that can take years. Therapy is most effective when you are willing to take it beyond the time you spend with your therapist and implementing it into your daily life.

 What if I have to cancel?

Similar to most professions, a 24-hour cancellation policy is in place. Without sufficient notice, you will be charged the full amount for your missed appointment. The exception to this is illness or bad weather.

 Is psychotherapy covered by OHIP?

No, however if you have an Employee’s Extended Healthcare Insurance or private insurance, you may want to check if psychotherapy is covered under your plan. In addition, psychotherapy services are always covered as a CRA Medical tax-deductible expenses.

Check with your insurance plan to see if they cover Registered Psychotherapists (RP), if not, here is what you can do to enhance your coverage…

The CRPO is the College that regulates the profession of psychotherapy in Ontario. Since becoming a regulated profession, Registered Psychotherapists are being recognized more commonly by insurance companies. If your employer/insurer does not yet provide coverage for RPs, you might be able to request extended coverage.

See the Registered Psychotherapists Insurance Committee web site for more information, including a letter you can download to request your employer extend your mental health benefits to include Registered Psychotherapists. Find a list of resources here: RPIC Resource List

 What are your methods of payment?

Session fees can be paid by cash or e-transfer.  If you choose to e-transfer, the e-transfer must be sent before our session begins and will be accepted/deposited after the session is completed. 

 Do you do ONLINE Therapy/E-Counselling/Video Chatting?

Yes, I have several clients who prefer to do counselling from the comfort of their home and these methods of counselling are highly effective.

 I’ve never been to therapy before, and I’m not sure how I feel about talking to stranger about my feelings. How do I know if this is right for me?

Like everything else, when you’re doing something for the first time it can feel uncertain, nervous, and even doubtful but seeing a therapist is a way of investing your emotional and mental health so you have a balance and manageable life. The best way to know if therapy will be comfortable and right for you is to reach out and connect for a free 15-minute consultation.
