Based on government and health official regulations, all appointments will be held virtually until we are advised to return to normal activities. Ensuring counselling supports are available, along with protecting everyone's health and safety, are my top priorities. Rest assured that my office hours will remain the same, and that video call appointments work very well.
If you have any questions, please contact Dara to discuss your personal situation.
Please note that the final 10-minutes of all appointments are reserved for note-taking and client prep (so a 60-min booking includes 50-min of counselling time).

Extended Health Plans/Employee benefit insurance plans often cover social work services. Counselling services can be claimed as a tax-deductible medical expense. Receipts provided on request at time of payment..
Cancellations/changes require 2 full business days notice or the full session fee will be charged. Without notice, late appointments will be held for 15 minutes, after which time it may be necessary to reschedule and the above cancellation fee may be applied. Thank you.
