In your initial meeting, your therapist will conduct a thorough intake assessment to fully understand your unique situation. They’ll inquire about your concerns, family background, social interactions, previous counseling experiences, as well as hopes and expectations. Rest assured, all information shared will be held in the strictest confidence, upholding our commitment to your privacy. We provide you with a secure, private, and non-judgmental environment, allowing you to express your feelings and thoughts openly and without fear of judgment.

After gathering this information, your therapist will carefully explain what you can expect in upcoming sessions, answering any questions you may have, and ensuring you feel comfortable and ready to proceed. Together, you and your therapist will create a collaborative and adaptable treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. This personalized approach ensures that your therapy sessions align with your objectives, laying the groundwork for meaningful progress and positive change.

Seeking the expertise of a Clinical Psychologist or Counsellor is often a step taken to address mental health concerns, manage life challenges, or pursue personal growth. Our clinic specializes in both mental health conditions and assessments, providing tailored support for issues ranging from Obsessive-compulsive disorders, anxiety, and depression to learning disabilities, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and more.

Whether you’re seeking understanding, coping strategies, or therapeutic intervention, our team is here to provide the compassion and professional care aligned with your specific needs and goals.

Yes, parents of minor clients are required to sit in for the first part of the initial session to understand the therapy process and what it entails. This time allows parents to express any questions or concerns, and the therapist may discuss the treatment plan and ways parents can support their children at home.

After this initial portion of the session, we encourage parents to allow their children to engage in individual therapy time. However, some children may feel more comfortable with a parent present, or the therapist may recommend parental involvement in certain circumstances.

Our approach is flexible and geared toward creating a safe and confidential environment that best meets the child’s needs. Anything shared with the therapist will remain private unless the child consents to share it with you. We place a high priority on your child’s privacy, creating a trusting relationship that enables effective therapy.

The number of therapy sessions required to see improvement is highly individual and depends on several factors. These include the nature and severity of the problem, the risk level, the client’s motivation and dedication to the process, as well as support and resources available outside of therapy. Urgent situations arising between sessions may also influence the number of meetings needed.

At our clinic, we follow an evidence-based approach to determine the most effective treatment plan tailored to your unique situation. Your therapist will assess your progress and needs throughout the therapy process and will usually conduct a review mid-way. This evaluation helps in determining how many additional sessions might be best for you.

At our clinic, maintaining your confidentiality is a top priority. We adhere to strict privacy laws, including HIPAA compliance, and are ISO27001 certified. Our state-of-the-art electronic health record (EHR) system ensures that all client information is securely stored and accessed only by authorized personnel.

Communication between therapists and clients is conducted through secure channels, and all staff are trained in maintaining confidentiality. Rest assured, your information is protected with the highest standards of care and privacy.
