Frequently Asked Questions

What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy and is intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Registered Psychotherapists work with individuals, couples and families in individual and group settings. Psychotherapy occurs when the Registered Psychotherapist (RP) and client enter into a psychotherapeutic relationship where both work together to bring about positive change in the client's thinking, feeling, behaviour and social functioning. (https://www.crpo.ca/what-is-psychotherapy/ from the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario website, May 2021)

I'm looking for a therapist that shares my faith, is this available?

Yes. Our therapists and staff are all practicing Christians. We believe we are made in God's image and redeemed by Christ.

I'm not religious can you still help me?

Yes. Faith can play a role in the therapeutic process, but does not need to.  We have clients of every faith, including those who don't subscribe to any religion. Our therapists respect each client when it comes to where they stand in their religious beliefs. 

I don't have insurance. How can I access your services?

After you complete an intake form, our Client Care Coordinator will reach out to you via email or phone to talk about fees and payment methods. We have many payment options and do our best to make our services accessible to everyone.

Do you offer online therapy?

Yes. We offer online therapy through a secure, private platform.  Once your intake is complete and you are scheduled with your therapist, you will have access to the proper links for your session.
