Psychotherapy is a scientific way of assisting someone to cope with mental health issues or addictions by using different modalities of talk therapy.
I start with a free 30 minute session, where you talk about your concerns. This is an enjoyable experience and gives you an opportunity to establish rapport and experience the therapeutic connection, which is the core of any therapeutic relationship. During the meeting we develop the best plan of care for you.
Widely psychotherapy cost ranges between $100/- to $200/- . Since it has been regulated more and more insurance companies are providing coverage under extended health benefits. You are encouraged to check with your insurance company. I work with sliding scale and it is discussed with you when you connect for consultation
Privacy and confidentiality of clients is the core mandate. Your information, or any information pertaining to you accessing services wouldn’t be disclosed to anyone, unless consented by client in writing. Having said that, it is imperative to be infromed that there are limits to confidentiality. You will be informed about the limitations when you connect for sessions.
I work with individuals, couples and families. My expertise are in working with children above the age of 10 years, youth, and adult population. I also provide culture specific services to racialized individuals, who wish to seek therapy in context of their culture. This is a safe space for those who identify with LGBTQ community or at risk population, as all the services are provided from Anti-Racism/ Anti-oppression and holistic framework. Therapy can be provided in language of your convenice, English, Hindi,Punjabi or Urdu.
No, psychotherapists cannot prescribe any medication, but if you are taking medication the therapy would not interfere with it.
