The practice continues to stay open in both Durham and Sarnia-Lambton. We are providing service via phone and secure video, and some sessions in-person, with COVID safety measures in place.
Message For Active Clients
Your therapist will be in touch with you to provide any information you may need.
As always, online booking is available at all times to new and current clients on this site. The main office phone - (226) 349-7937 - accepts messages 24/7 and calls are often answered during business hours.
Trying Online or Tele-Therapy for the First Time
We use a platform that is compliant with federal privacy laws and the psychotherapy standards of practice.
Feel free to consider trying out a short “test session,” at no cost.
We’d like to recommend Wellness Together Canada, which is sponsored by the Government of Canada. This site is free and hosts high-quality resources. Read about it here. Key aspects of the site are:
information about how to connect with mental health professionals for free assistance,
an in-depth self-assessment of your distress level, well being, functioning,
a showcase of a number of mental health resources that are available online.
The World Health Organization's tips are here.
