Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! To determine compatibility and determine which therapist and services would be the best fit for you, we provide a free 20-minute consultation. You can book a free therapy consultation online here or send us a message and we can schedule your appointment!

You do not need a referral from a physician to receive counselling. While doctors can suggest therapy, they do not provide referrals for it.

The majority of insurance companies cover psychotherapy; however, we strongly advise you to contact your insurance company to confirm coverage. We do not bill directly with the insurance company. The client is responsible for payment and a receipt is provided following payment that the client can directly claim with their insurance company.

Information is kept confidential, and privacy is of utmost importance in our practice. Your therapist will have a lengthy discussion prior to commencing therapy regarding circumstances where there are limits to confidentiality (for example, the Duty to Report in instances where children may be at risk for harm). Prior to commencing therapy, clients will sign a consent form that discusses your rights to privacy and confidentiality and therapists are open to discussing how we keep our client information private and confidential.

Psychotherapy is a journey, and time limits are usually never set. Each client has a therapeutic plan that determines the appropriate length for therapy, with the understanding that this is always open to changing. Upon setting goals for therapy and understanding your unique challenges, your therapist will discuss the plan with you. Most clients will attend 9 to 12 sessions with some attending therapy sessions for much longer. Weekly sessions are recommended to start and sometimes bi-weekly sessions are appropriate as well. Each session can last anywhere between 45-60 minutes. Some couple or family sessions may be up to 90 minutes (this will be discussed with you and the rate for therapy will be prorated to reflect same). It all depends on the treatment plan and the presenting issues you would like to work on as well as the therapeutic goals set out collaboratively with your therapist.

Yes! Therapy may be offered on a sliding scale or at a reduced rate. These spots are dependent on availability. Please reach out to us to discuss low-cost therapy further.
