Therapeutic services may be covered by your health insurance policy or employee benefits plan. Please check with your policy provider by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- Are registered psychotherapists, registered social workers or registered psychologists covered as treatment providers?
Cash, cheque or e-transfer are generally accepted methods of payment..
Do I need psychotherapy?
Everyone goes through difficult challenges in their life and sometimes we need extra support to help find our way through or out of something.
How can therapy help me?
A therapist provides a safe, neutral space for you to talk about whatever you need to and hold the space for any feelings associated. Sometimes we trace the feeling or reaction back to the source so that it is no longer displaced. At other times a therapist can validate your experience and also challenge any limiting beliefs you developed long ago.
What happens during therapy?
We primarily engage in talk therapy however sometimes we will offer something experiential.
Will our conversations remain confidential?
Confidentiality is a key component of therapy. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else. By law, your therapist can’t release this information without your written consent, except in the following situations:
- The therapist suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults or elders.
- The therapist suspects the client is in danger of harming themselves or has threated to harm another person.
