Frequently Asked Questions

Q1: Will my insurance cover the cost of therapy?

Several extended health insurance plans cover therapists like me who have a Masters of Social Work (MSW). Some companies that have covered MSW services in the past include:

  • Manulife Financial
  • Liberty Health
  • Blue Cross (some plans)
  • Desjardins Financial (new plans only)
  • Great West Life
  • Sunlife
  • Claim Secure
  • Empire Life
  • Equitable Life
  • Green Shield

You need to check first with your insurance company. OHIP does not cover my services.

Q2: What happens if I don't think you are the right counsellor for me?

All good counsellors understand that it is essential that the client feels comfortable. Occasionally clients need to see more than one to find the 'right fit'. Most clients I have worked with express high satisfaction.

Q3: How long are therapy sessions?

Sessions are one hour.

Q4: How soon can I get an appointment?

Usually within a week.

Q5:Where is your office?

My private practice office is located a few blocks from Carlton and Yonge Streets in downtown Toronto. The College Street subway is the closest. Parking is available at meters on side streets, or in a parking lot one short block away.
