How do I know if you are the right person to help me? You will have a feeling about who I am because what you have heard or read. Perhaps, we have spoken briefly on the phone. It is important to trust your own judgment.
Do I need a referral? A referral is not necessary. You can make an appointment by contacting me directly.
How do I make an appointment? Simply email me Contact@DrCarrieBailey.com or call 416-726-9945 to make an appointment. Please let me know your availability.
Do you have a wait list? Availability of appointments depends on how well our schedules match. I try to accommodate your request for an appointment as quickly as possible. Currently, I have no wait list.
Are the services covered by OHIP? Counselling is not covered by OHIP. You may have insurance coverage through your benefit package at work. You could submit your receipts for counselling as a medical expense on your income tax.
What is your cancellation and missed appointment policy? Your appointments are important to you. If you need to cancel, I trust you have a good reason. Please cancel your appointment at least 24 hrs in advance. Naturally, extenuating circumstances will be discussed if you miss an appointment. There is no charge for missed appointments. I may implement a policy at a later time, if needed.
What if I am in crisis and need help after hours? I do not offer crisis appointments. If you are concerned about crises, we will develop a good safety plan during our appointments.
What if I don’t feel like I am getting the help I want? From time to time, we will discuss how your sessions are going. Reflection and evaluation are important. If our sessions are not meeting your needs, we can discuss a different approach or I can help you find a therapist who would be a better match.
