To Schedule a Counselling Appointment
*If you are in crisis please call 911 or proceed to your nearest hospital
If you have an extended health benefits (EHB) program through your job, or a partner’s employer, please check with your EHB provider to be sure which professionals will be covered by your insurance. We do not deal directly with insurance providers. You will need to pay for your appointment when you come for your session and then submit your receipt to your insurance company for them to pay you.
