The most important part of therapy is a good therapeutic relationship between the patient and therapist. Therefore, all prospective patients receive a no-charge 30 minute in person consultation. Often after 30 minutes a prospective patient is able to determine their comfort levels with their therapist. Consultations can be done on their own or combined with an initial session. Note that if Kevin is not the therapist for you, he will be happy to help refer you to somebody that is a better fit.

Registered Psychotherapist coverage is becoming more common in benefits packages. Please check with your insurance company for your specific details. It is important to keep in mind that even when there is coverage, it will often not cover the full treatment required regardless of the type of mental health professional that you work with. As you will receive a receipt with Kevin’s license number on it, treatment will likely qualify as a medical expense for tax return purposes.

As a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, his services are considered an eligible service under the OAP Core Clinical Services. You would submit the paid receipt that is provided and then submit an expense form to the OAP. You will need to be aware of your billing cycle ends to ensure that sessions and your billing cycle are in sync if you are to use your OAP funding.

As long as it is going to help the therapeutic process then for sure! Sitting and talking is great for some people, but others are more visual or like to touch things for themselves. Videos are often shown on the large wall mounted TV and the whiteboard is used extensively in many sessions.

Therapy can work when a person has decided that they want to feel different. When a child or teen is unable to express their goals, a therapist can help them determine what happiness means for them.

Everybody’s therapeutic experience is unique. Like most things in life, in order to succeed you will have to work hard…and the potential results are life-changing! Click here to hear directly from Kevin on this important topic.
