Frequently asked questions
What are your fees?
Fee is 160$/per 50min session. Although my services are not covered by OHIP, many extended health benefit plans cover psychotherapy provided by a Registered Social Worker (RSW). Please confirm coverage with your provider. Additionally, fees may be claimed as an allowable medical expense on your income taxes.
Can I talk to you before I decide to book an appointment?
Of course! If you provide your number and a good time to call, I will be very happy to talk with you.
What can I expect in my first session?
A decision to start therapy can feel stressful. The first session will focus on getting to know you, what is happening in your life, and what your hopes are. This will happen in a warm, caring, and non-judgmental environment.
Is your office accessible?
Unfortunately, my office is on a second floor, with one flight of stairs and no elevator.
