Policies


A session is 50 minutes long, because I use the rest of the hour to write confidential notes.

My Psychotherapy fees are not covered by OHIP. Many Employee Benefit Plans have coverage for services provided by Regulated Health Care Professionals. Regulated Psychotherapy fees can be deducted as a health expense in many instances. Small business owners who have certain health insurance packages can deduct Psychotherapy fees as a business expense.

I accept cheque or cash at the session, or email money transfer or Paypal prior to the session.

My policy for change or cancellation of a session is 24-hour notice; however, please give me as much notice as you can, as I will do for you. If your session is scheduled for Monday, then 24 hours notice is on the previous Friday before the hour you have scheduled for Monday.

I have a scent-free practice since I know that there are people who are allergic to scent and fragrance and react badly to it.

Our work together is confidential, meaning I cannot share what you tell me, unless you give me informed written consent. There are certain exceptions that require me to report child abuse and exceptional risk of harm to self or others. This obligation helps to ensure the safety of children and also of adults at risk of mortal harm. I will be happy to discuss this with you in detail if you have questions that are not answered here. All Health Care Professionals have this obligation, not just me. Another circumstance in which there could be a limit to confidentiality would be if I were to receive a court order for records from a judge, or if someone has driven a motor vehicle to my office under the influence of substance.

If you wish to book a session or if I have not answered other questions that you have, please telephone or email and I will respond, usually within 24 hours and often the same day.

Location


My Psychotherapy Practice is located in Central Toronto, near Bathurst and Eglinton, where I have been practicing since 1998. My office is on the subway line. The subway stop is Eglinton West, and my office is also on the 32 Eglinton bus route.
