Areas of Expertise

Psychotherapy

Clients work one-on-one with a therapist in a safe, supportive, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviours, and present-day difficulties. Services are available in Russian and English online only. There is good evidence that online therapies can be as helpful as face-to-face therapies. I'll send you Informed consent before the first appointment with detailed conditions for the service.

My fee is $150 per session for individual sessions (HST is included in my fee). A session is 50 minutes in length. Acceptable methods of payment are credit card and Interac e-transfer.

 

Please note that 24 hours' notice is required to cancel appointments without charge.

Psychotherapy is not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) and with an extended coverage check with your insurance company.

Supervision

Supervision is a necessary part of professional development which serves three main purposes - 'formal assessment' (e.g. case management and quality control issues), 'experiential processing’ (e.g. encouraging emotional experiencing and processing) and ‘teaching’ (e.g. maintaining and facilitating the supervisees’ competence, capability and general effectiveness).

Supervision is conducted in a one-on-one or mini-group format with a focus on case formulation and personal struggles which get in the way of supporting clients.
