What is your cancellation policy?

Will my insurance or extended health benefits cover me for counselling?
I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC #6913) - this means that my services will often be covered by extended benefits plans. Make sure to check with your benefits provider to determine eligibility.
What is your confidentiality policy?
Everything we talk about in counselling is kept between you and me. In line with industry standards, the only exceptions to this are the following:
- If you were to disclose that a child or vulnerable person is being, or is about to be, abused or neglected
- If you were to disclose your immediate intention to end the life of another person, or your own life
- If you were to become involved in legal proceedings and a court of law were to subpoena your file
