Virtual Counselling FAQ'S

How do I prepare for a virtual counselling appointment?

  • ​Use headphones with a microphone. Better sound quality. 

  • Choose a place in your home where you have privacy, can speak openly and feel comfortable. 

  • Plug in your laptop or computer. 

  • Gather any items you would want to have on hand before your session (water, tea/coffee, tissues).

  • Schedule some free time after your session as counselling can bring up a lot of emotions and thoughts, sometimes in ways you didn't expect. 

Is virtual counselling secure and confidential?

  • I use a telehealth platform (Jane.App) designed for virtual health services, including counselling. There is no electronic platform that can guarantee 100% security, but telehealth platforms meet the highest standards of encryption and all of Jane.App servers are located in Canada.

I'm uncertain about virtual counselling. Can I try it?

  • I offer a complimentary 10-minute phone consultation. Around 99 % of my clients have said that virtual counselling feels comfortable and have decided to continue working together. 

  • MSW: Master of Social Work. In Ontario, MSW is the most common designation of therapists - and it's also the most commonly covered by benefits.

  • I charge the following for counselling:
