IMPORTANT OFFICE NOTICES
VIRTUAL TELE-HEALTH COUNSELLING ONLY
UPDATE - Winter 2023-2024
HOLIDAY HOURS: I will be away from work December 18th to January 8th. You may email me, but I will not be booking sessions during this time.
CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW REFERRALS (ADULT/INDIVIDUAL)
NOTE: I NO LONGER accept WCB, legal or MVA or insurance referrals/claims as my practice is part-time and the reporting involved cannot be accommodated). If you choose to do counselling with active legal issues, understand that I will not be providing legal reporting.
2023 UPDATE ***
All sessions will be virtual effective June, 2023. My hours will be Monday and Tuesday 8-4. If needed, I will add Wednesday morning 8am to noon. So, 15 client hours total per week.
This change coincides with my celebrating 40 years this July 2023, as a Psychologist. I am not intending to retire yet, but my practice will remain part time. Please reach out with any questions that you may have.
VIRTUAL COUNSELLING ONLY
I will continue to offer "TeleHealth Counselling" over the internet platform called Doxy.Me. It has high standards for security, encryption, confidentiality (nothing is stored) and is HIPAA approved. My professional association does not encourage Skype or FaceTime given the lack of online security both of these lack. You will need to review and sign a virtual consent form prior to your session. As mentioned, research shows that 'virtual counselling' can be as effective as face to face in office sessions. Payment is still due after each session and can be sent directly by e-transfer to: [email protected]. My fee for a 90 minute assessment or session is $300, and $220/hour for regular 1- hour sessions. If you would like to book an additional 30 minutes or your session extends past the hour, you will be billed accordingly. You will receive a receipt from me to submit directly to your independent insurance company for reimbursement.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
