Phone, video and text sessions are available in the evenings and on weekends, and are a little more flexible than regular office hours. They are done from my office or from my secure home office, where I wear headphones and am able to have complete privacy. If you are needing video, phone or text sessions, keep in mind that for your own security and privacy, you will want to ensure that you will be somewhere where you will not be overheard, interrupted, or disturbed. Because Video and Phone sessions do not appear here in the Online Booking, email, phone or use the contact form to set these up. Video sessions are done through Doxy.me or Zoom, which meets Canada’s encryption and privacy laws. You will receive a simple one-click log in code, which will take you right to your session. You will then be invoiced after your session is over. Texting sessions are done through Signal, which also meets Canada's encryption and privacy laws, and is an app that you can download to your device.
100% of my availability is NOT listed here for online booking. I do keep a few appointments a week available for urgent issues that can come up for my clients, so just contact me if there isn’t a suitable appointment time listed here for you.
It is highly recommended that you book your next few sessions ahead of time (especially if online), just to ensure you have the appointment time that you prefer, and so that you don’t have to wait anywhere from 3-6 weeks to be seen. If you are not choosy about appointment time, booking just your next session or two will be helpful for you.
The therapeutic relationship is very important, and it can be hard to get a feel for each other online, so I generally prefer to meet in person for the first session. There are always exceptions and situations where this isn't possible, so email for more information.
