Who do you work with?
I am qualified to work with individual adults 18+. Some areas of specific experience and attention include: parents and parents-to-be; issues arising around work/self alignment and life transitions; cultural bereavement, existential grief, anxiety and the ongoing stress of our "post-pandemic" lives.
Do you offer a free consultation?
Yes. I offer a free 30 minute in-person or phone consultation to see if it might be a good fit for us to work together.
What types of sessions do you offer?
I offer in-person and telephone sessions.
Is your office an accessible space?
At this time my practice space is on the third floor of an older building and as such is only accessible to those who can walk up and down stairs unaided. If you need or would like a referral to a therapist with an accessible space, please let me know.
Do you offer sliding scale rates? Are your fees covered by OHIP?
Yes, when I am able. Currently my sliding scale spots are all full and my hourly rate is $130. Psychotherapy is not covered by OHIP. However, it is often covered by private insurance plans. Please check with your health care plan for the rate of coverage and the process by which to submit claims.
How long does each therapy session last?
Each therapy session is at least 50 minutes long, with an option for longer sessions as needed.
What are your credentials and training?
I trained for six years at the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto (Graduated in 2019) and for a year in a Group Facilitation program at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto. I am a member in good standing of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO #008150) and the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy. I hold a Level 1 certificate in Trauma Counselling for Mental Health Professionals from the Centre for Community Mental Health Learning Centre at Sick Kids and I am currently in training as a volunteer on the Crisis and Support line at the Durham Rape Crisis Centre.
