FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


Will my insurance plan cover your services?

If your plan covers the services of a registered/clinical psychologist, yes my services will be covered.


Do you offer a sliding fee scale?

No, I do not offer a sliding scale for fees. My fees are competitive and are already reduced for clients who do not have coverage through their extended health benefits.


Do you offer free consultations?

I am happy to do 15 minute telephone consultations for new clients.


Why did my fertility doctor ask me to book a session with you?

Fertility clinics in Canada and the U.S. require patients using third party fertility treatments (donor sperm, donor eggs, or gestational carriers) to do one counselling session prior to treatment to make sure you are fully informed about, and prepared for the process.  Some clinics also ask patients doing IVF to attend a counselling session for the same reason.
