How do I start?

After you have read our biographies you can either choose which therapist you think you'd like to see or you can contact us via email, text or phone and we can help you figure out who it would be best for you to schedule a free 15 minute consultation with to discuss the main issue that brings you to therapy. We can answer any questions and we can decide if it's a good fit. You do not need a referral from a physician.

Do you take insurance?

Most insurance companies have extended coverage in some of their plans for psychotherapy services with a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) or Registered Social Worker (RSW).  Every insurance company is different and coverage can also vary depending on which plan your employer has purchased. You will need to contact your insurance company and ask if they cover psychotherapy services.  If so, you pay for your session up front and we can give you an invoice for services rendered. You then submit the invoice to your insurance company for reimbursement.
