Frequently Asked Questions
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario and I am a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I hold a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Carleton University.
Psychotherapy is a way to help people who are dealing with a variety of life challenges, mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Mental health professionals help individuals reach their goals, increase their well-being and overall health. Problems can include difficulties in coping with daily life; the impact of trauma, medical illness or loss as well as specific mental illnesses (i.e. anxiety or depression).
The first session helps us establish if I am a right fit for you. This is the opportunity for you to give me an overview of your story, your goals and really what brings you to therapy. I will also go over some documents with you and some of our policies.
The sessions are 50 minutes in length for individual therapy, 80 minutes in length for couples and family sessions, and the initial phone consultation is 20 minutes long.
This will be discussed during our first meeting as it would depend on each client.
