Like any relationship, the therapeutic relationship is only as good as its boundaries. Mutual respect of time and space are important to make this relationship work. Holding to agreements like appointment times, cancellation times etc. is part of a respectful relationship. Another part is honesty and direct communication. If at any point you have questions or concerns about your therapy, please let me know. Below outlines my business practices as they concern scheduling and sessions:
Free Consultation: I offer a complimentary 30 minute initial consultation to answer any questions that you may have and to give you the opportunity to decide whether I am a therapist that you would feel comfortable working with.
The First Appointment: The initial appointment involves a time of getting acquainted. It also involves reviewing the Limits of Confidentiality, General Consent for Therapy, talking about what issues you are experiencing at this time and identifying your goals for therapy.
Fees: $150 for 50 minute hour plus HST. Fees are payable at the end of each session, either by cash, cheque or etransfer. Fees are the same for office, phone or video conferencing sessions. If the above fee is not affordable in your current life situation, please contact me to discuss my sliding scale.
Cancellations & Rescheduling: To avoid being charged in full for a missed appointment, kindly give 24 hour notice for appointment cancellation or rescheduling.
