Privacy Policy

Privacy of personal information is an important consideration.  Online therapy sessions will be conducted using platforms that comply with PHIPA and PIPEDA privacy laws.  Please note that correspondence through electronic mediums is not completely secure.  The increased security risk to health information being intercepted or disclosed to third parties exists when using internet services.  To help keep your information safe and secure, you can:

  • Use a private computer/device (i.e., not an employer’s or third party’s computer/device), secure accounts, and a secure internet connection.  For example, a personal and encrypted email account is more secure than an unencrypted email account; accessing the internet via your home network is generally more secure than an “open guest” Wi-Fi connection (i.e., public library, Tim Horton’s, the mall, etc.).
  • Ensure the physical space you choose while accessing an online session is private.

Are our meetings confidential?

In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and psychotherapist / coach. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client.

However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule.

Exceptions include:

  • If suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse, the therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person, the therapist is required to notify the police.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, the therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
  • If client records are subpoenaed by a court of law.

* Please ask if you have any concerns prior to engaging in services.
