FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is psychotherapy? 
Psychotherapy is talk-based therapy between a client and a regulated mental health professional.  It allows for self-awareness and identifying of unhelpful thought patterns and behaviours. Collaboratively, we will set goals and discover what improvements you would like to see in your mental health and well-being. Generally, psychotherapy can be offered in individual therapy sessions, couple therapy sessions, family therapy sessions, and group therapy sessions. I currently offer sessions for individuals and couples. 

What is a Registered Psychotherapist
A Registered Psychotherapist refers to an individual who has been specifically trained to provide psychotherapy and is licensed and regulated by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). 

 

Is online therapy right for me?

Many people enjoy online therapy sessions, but it might not be the right fit for you. You know yourself best. If you are the type of person who needs to be in a face-to-face setting, sitting across the room from a therapist to be able to express yourself, you will want to seek in-person therapy. If you are on the fence about online therapy, try a session and see how it feels.

s easy and accessible with many benefits:

Convenience – your life is busy, save time and eliminate the hassle of commuting to appointments and sitting in waiting rooms. Therapy is only a click away.

Do you charge insurance companies directly?

At the moment I do not, you will have to submit your receipts for reimbursement. After you have completed a therapy session you will automatically be sent a receipt which will be stored in your account and a copy will also be sent to your email.

How long does a therapy session last?
Hourly individual sessions last a total of 50 minutes. You can also book extended sessions (75 or 90 total minutes) if you feel more time is needed. Prior to your first session be sure to complete your assessment form and submit your consent forms, this will allow your therapist to be prepared and will not take away from your session time.

 

What methods of payment do you accept?

I prefer eTransfers or  (email transfer - EMT) and also accept major credit and debit cards, processed through the Jane App booking system. For Norway, I currently accept Vipps.
