When you call our office we will be able to answer any questions you have about the intake process and how you can get started. 

Sometimes people just want to consult about a difficulty for one or two sessions. Most engage in short-term work lasting 10 to 20 sessions. Some want more substantial gains in personal growth and engage in longer term therapy and Clearing work.

Ethics & Boundaries

Confidentiality is of utmost importance so that you have the safety you deserve. There are some limits to confidentiality (requirement by law to report child abuse, subpoenaed records by the Court or we may be called to testify, and if your life or somebody else's life is in danger). In these cases, we will initiate actions to keep you or others safe. Aside from these exceptions, issues discussed in counselling sessions remain confidential.

We willingly abide by all ethical guidelines as set out by our governing body and are insured.

Please consult with your human resources department or insurance company to determine whether your employee extended benefit plan covers therapy provided by Master Therapeutic Counsellors (RTC) registered with the Association of Cooperative Therapeutic Counsellors of Canada (ACCT). If you have insurance coverage you still pay us at the time of service and then submit receipts for reimbursement. 

This list is updated sporadically. To find up to date information or to find out how we can help you get reimbursement through your provider, please email us. 

ClaimSecure has added ACCT to their approved association's list. Please ensure your client's policy covers "counsellors", if the policy states "clinical counsellors" you will not be covered.  Claimsecure distinguishes between therapeutic and clinical counsellors.
