Frequency asked questions

What kind of therapy do you offer?

I offer individual psychotherapy to adults. My therapeutic approach is grounded in cognitive behaviour therapy imbued with the compassion and encouragement of person centered therapy. Through cultivating awareness of patterns in our thoughts and beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world, I support my clients in examining them with curiosity and self-compassion. Being able to cultivate an appreciation for our inherent worth and to meet our innate drive for growth are one of many things that can be explored in therapy.

What is virtual psychotherapy?

Virtual psychotherapy refers to providing psychotherapy services remotely using video conferencing. I utilize a private and confidential video conferencing service called NousTalk that has an encrypted connection and is PHIPA (Personal Health Information Protection Act) compliant.

Are you covered by insurance?

Insurance providers may cover fees either completely or partially, which is dependent on your specific extended health insurance.

It can be helpful to inquire about the following with your health insurer:

  1. Does my plan include mental health benefits?
  2. If so, how much do you cover for registered social workers providing psychotherapy services?

I provide receipts that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

Do you provide in-person services?

I exclusively provide online therapy.

What is your availability?

I am typically available Tuesday to Friday between the hours of 8:00am-5:00pm.

What is the cost of a session?

My session fee is $120 for a 60 minute session.

How do I get started?

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for a free 20 minute consultation phone/video call so that we have an opportunity to connect. This is an opportunity for you to tell me more about what brings you to therapy, and for me to answer any questions that will help you in finding the right therapist.
