Your First Session
Your first session can take anywhere between 50 - 80 minutes. During this session, you and your clinician will discuss your presenting concerns (i.e., why have you reached out for counselling services), your background (e.g., family, medical, social, etc.), gain a general understanding of what you seek from counselling, and identify how our services might support your process. You and your clinician will decide on how frequently you will meet (e.g., once or twice a week at 50 or 80 minutes), which can change as necessary.
Interested in scheduling your intake session? Refer to the clinician biographies below, visit the online scheduling system, select your preferred clinician from the STAFF option, select 1.5 Hour Intake Session, and follow the subsequent prompts. You will receive an automatic verification email once you schedule the intake session, then your clinician will send a confirmation email with further details in regards to your first session.
Service fees are covered by extended health programs if you are covered for psychotherapy, psychology, or social work (MSW / RSW).
When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.
In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e. the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.
Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.
