First and foremost, congratulations! It's a big step to acknowledge that something isn't working and to reach out for help. I applaud you for making the call and I am totally honored to be going on this journey with you.
At your first appointment, there will be some paperwork to complete. You can download the intake and consent form here ahead of time if you wish. Just remember to bring it with you and/or email it to me password protected to ensure your safety and confidentiality.
We may talk about things you haven't thought about in a long time. Lots of different things can come up in therapy. Please prepare yourself for this.
Everything you say will be kept confidential except if there is reason to believe you are a harm to yourself or someone else, I get subpoenaed to court, or something were to happen to you in session. For more information on confidentiality, review standard 3.1.
Being on my own journey, I can share with you that I haven't liked all the professionals I have worked with. The reason I share this with you is because perhaps we won't be a good fit. There may be things about me that don't resonate with you and that is totally okay. If that is the case, check out some of my colleagues! Sheila Bristow, Erin Byron, Jaime Armstrong, and Paula Carter.
My rate is $135.00 plus HST. I accept cash, cheque, and e-transfers. E-transfers can be sent to Michelle Peddle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check with your insurance provider prior to our session to review your coverage.
I am registered with a variety of programs that cover the financial costs of therapy. If you have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) or are working with the Victim Crisis Assistance and Referral Service (VCARS) call them first so they can refer you to my services.
If you are First Nations or Inuit, I am registered with the Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB). Let me know prior to starting our work together so that we can complete the necessary paperwork.
