What We Do
SECURE. Effective. Convenient
Video conferencing has become a familiar and necessary tool for work and school as we navigate a global pandemic. Online therapy is simply receiving treatment electronically, whereby the client and the therapist are in two separate locations. Video sessions are accessed through a secure, PHIPA-compliant video conferencing platform. Accessing the platform is easy, using a one-click link you will receive by email.
Virtual therapy is not new. The technology and infrastructure for Teletherapy have been available since the mid-1990s. More recently, a sizeable meta-analytic study compared clinical interventions and assessments delivered via videoconferencing with those shown in person. Overall, they found that in-person and virtual sessions produced similar outcomes (Batastini, 2021).
Benefits of Online Therapy
Convenient: Book anywhere, anytime, online. All paperwork is completed online; no emailing, scanning or printing is required. You decide how you want to receive the services- by video or phone from anywhere with any device you choose (computer, tablet or smartphone).
Psychological Comfort: You only need an internet connection and a quiet, comfortable space. No worrying about running into someone you know in an office or waiting room.
Physical Safety: Receive therapy in the comfort of your own environment, which decreases your risk of coming into contact with COVID-19—no need to wear a mask.
Accessible: Online Therapy provides accessibility to individuals who are disabled or housebound. Online Therapy also offers access to mental health treatment to people in rural or remote areas across Ontario.
Cost/Time Efficient: Save money on gas and travel time. Driving long distances and taking significant time out of a busy schedule to seek in-person Therapy can be a barrier for some people.
Consistent Therapy: Decreases absences due to poor weather, illness, car trouble, etc. Lapses in regular appointments can lead to a regression in progress.

Clinical Supervision for Psychotherapists
I am trained in different modalities of Clinical Supervision and Consultation. I have been a Clinical Supervisor for advanced and Masters level students since 2013.
I offer Clinical Supervision and Consultations to Qualifying Psychotherapists, members of the CRPO, and Registered Psychotherapists in the mental health field who are motivated to have a space to reflect on their practice.
My clinical supervision and consultations approach is focused on a collaborative perspective to facilitate reflection and conceptualization, trusting the supervisee’s internal resources, work, and life experiences. Clinical supervision is a self-care practice, professional development and safe and effective use of self.
