I provide both individual and couples counselling sessions for adults and youth/adolescents (13 years and older). Typical sessions are 50 minutes long. Longer sessions are available at client request. I also provide support letters, progress and assessment reports for court purposes upon request of the client. An additional fee applies to these services. Please speak to me about what you require. I provide an initial telephone consultation free of charge.
Also, please note that I have a limited number of sliding scale (reduced fee) appointments for clients who cannot afford to pay my full fees. Feel free to speak to me about whether you may qualify.
I accept payment for services by way of cash, personal cheque and email money transfer. Payment is due at the conclusion of each session. If you wish to pay via email transfer payment must be made in advance of the session. A receipt for all payments will be issued.
** Please note that counseling services provided by registered social workers are not covered by OHIP. However, many supplemental insurance plans, such as the kind provided by your employer, will provide reimbursement for these services so check with your insurance provider. I provide invoices and receipts for submission to your insurance provider. **
Cancellation Policy: At least 48 hours notice for appointment cancellation is required or you may be charged in full for the missed session.
Confidentiality Policy: Confidentiality is strictly adhered to in accordance with the requirements of Ontario College of Social Workers. No information regarding your treatment, including your status as a client, will be disclosed without your express consent. A legal 'Duty to Report' exists in circumstances of imminent harm to self or others and in circumstances where a child may be at risk of harm.
