Your First Session

Your first session can take anywhere between 50 - 80 minutes. During this session, you and your clinician will discuss your presenting concerns (i.e., why have you reached out for counselling services), your background (e.g., family, medical, social, etc.), gain a general understanding of what you seek from counselling, and identify how our services might support your process. You and your clinician will decide on how frequently you will meet (e.g., once or twice a week at 50 or 80 minutes), which can change as necessary.

Once there, click “Book a Session” to schedule an intake session with your preferred clinician. Select from the drop down the location you wish to book with your clinician, select 50 Minute Intake Session or 80 Minute Intake Session (for couples or those meeting with a student clinician) and follow the subsequent prompts to create an account. You will receive an automatic verification email once you schedule the intake session.

Service fees are covered by extended health programs if you are covered for psychotherapy, psychology, or social work (MSW / RSW). Please review your extended health policy to identify if you have coverage for a psychotherapist, psychologist, or social worker (RSW/MSW) and speak with your clinician about this during your first appointment.

Cancellation Policy

When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.

In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e. the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.

Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.

About Adam

I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of Victoria in 2009, a Bachelor of Education in Social Sciences from University of Victoria in 2013, and a Master of Education in Adult Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2016 from University of Toronto, OISE campus. I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW), a Registered Psychotherapist (RP), a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC), and a registered teacher in British Columbia, Ontario (OCT), and the Yukon Territory. I am a Certified Member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Practitioners (OAMHP) and a voluntary member of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF).

Growing up in Prince Edward County and living in mid-to-large cities across Canada, I have worked with a variety of populations ranging from hard-to-reach inner city clients, adult survivors of childhood trauma, and the LGBTQ2 community, which has fostered a sincere understanding of the various daily life challenges and struggles.

Practicing from an eclectic therapeutic model, drawing from such modalities as Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) model, and Schema Therapy, the focus of my clinical experience has been directed toward the age range of 21 - 85 with presenting issues relating to depression and general anxiety, childhood physical, psychological, and sexual trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and gender/sexuality-related issues.
