1. Do you provide a receipt for insurance coverage?
Yes! If you have extended health benefits through your employer, you may have coverage for psychotherapy services. It is important that you check with your provider to get the details of your coverage to verify that is psychotherapy is covered.

5. Is this going to be confidential?
Absolutely – confidentiality is a critical part of the therapeutic relationship. In our sessions, you will be able to speak openly and honestly. My primary responsibility as your counselor is to provide an environment in which you feel comfortable and safe to share your story, goals, and the reasons you’re seeking counselling. I am bound by College of Registered Psychotherapists (CRPO) and Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP) will not discuss the content of our work outside our sessions and will adhere to both the federal and provincial laws and ethical standards that guide my profession by protecting the confidentiality of the information I receive.
As your counsellor, I may share your information with my supervisor or peer supervision group to discuss or collaborate to ensure your counselling experience and progress can be at an optimum level. Both of these parties also operate under the same professional confidentiality standards that I do. I will ensure your privacy will be adequately protected in this process. Any other exceptions will be discussed at our first appointment.
