Counselling & Psychotherapy

Candace has always believed that the typical 50-minute session is not long enough. For this reason, the base length for all face to face counselling appointments is a full 60 minutes.

 

Payment, Insurance and Cancellation Policy

New Clients

First sessions for individuals and couples are extended by 15 minutes for a total time of 75 minutes. This additional time will ensure we have enough time to disseminate the reasons for your visit and, your goals for therapy. Additionally, this extra time will allow us the opportunity to develop the foundation of a strong therapeutic relationship. This is important to me as a clinician because research has shown that clients have an greater chance of experiencing positive outcomes from counselling and psychotherapy when a strong-working therapeutic alliance is established. This extra time, in conjunction with filling out the intake form that follows, will give us a great head start!
