CLIENT CARE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
New and returning clients may have questions about the policies and practices at my office. A brief summary follows below - please get in touch with any questions you may have.
Protecting Your Health, Your Family’s Health and the Health of our Healthcare System
Client safety is my highest priority. As a Psychologist, I receive and review guidance documents from the Ontario Ministry of Health, the College of Psychologists of Ontario, and the Ontario Psychological Association. After reviewing these documents, and assessing their impact on our therapeutic work, I have decided to continue offering virtual and telephone meetings until December 2022, and will re-evaluate options at that time. ***Beginning in July 2022, in-person services will be offered on Saturdays only.
Procedures for COVID-19 Self-Screening (Saturday appointments)
Clients attending in-person health services have a broad array of health concerns, and some may have a higher risk of acquiring COVID-19 infection, or acquiring more serious complications of a COVID-19 infection. For the safety of all clients attending the office, self-screening and public health precautions (masking, hand hygiene, respiratory etiquette, physical distancing) will be used to reduce the risk of viral transmission.
Technology-Assisted Mental Health Care
Psychological services are available via telephone and Zoom TeleHealth. Zoom TeleHealth offers a secure (PHIPA/HIPAA compliant) and user-friendly video-conferencing service. A PHIPA-compliant client portal is available for online scheduling, and to receive reading materials and receipts. Click here for information about the portal. Payments are accepted via e-transfer or credit card.
Zoom meetings require the use of an App on either a desktop computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Please visit the following links to learn more:

Your well-being is important to me. Some clients may have concerns about using tele-psychology, adequate privacy at home, and/or challenges in securing child-free time to participate. These concerns are understandable. Please reach out to discuss them with me.
Be Vigilant About Fraud
I encourage all clients to continue to be mindful of fraud. I do not send unsolicited emails asking for confidential information (eg., passwords, PINs, credit card numbers, health information, etc.) or inviting you to make purchases. Please contact me by phone if you receive an email and are unsure if it originated from my office.
As a reminder, please self-isolate if you feel ill or unwell, even if mild in nature, and use the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/. For health services, contact your family physician or Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000.
Information provided by local, provincial and federal health authorities is reviewed as it becomes available. Any changes in my practice will be shared with clients as soon as possible. Active clients receive updates about pandemic-related policies via the portal. Archived copies of letters can be viewed from the FAQs page.
