All of the information that we share together is strictly confidential unless one of the following should occur:
1 The courts subpoena our files or I am subpoenaed as a witness in court.
2 If I suspect cases of child abuse that have not been previously reported. This includes physical harm, sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, and emotional harm. In this case, we are required by law to report to the Ministry of Children and Families.
3 If you threaten to harm yourself or another. In this case, we are also required to report this to the proper authorities.
Rescheduling & Cancellations
Setting time aside for therapy and committing to that time is an important act of honoring oneself and the therapeutic process. I ask that you cancel appointments with me as soon as you are aware that you need to.
If you cancel with a minimum of 48 hours notice, no fee will be charged. If you contact me to cancel with less than 48 hours notice, half of the regular fee will be charged. If you do not contact me to cancel I will assume that you are late for the appointment, wait for you throughout the appointment time, and the full fee will be charged.
If you arrive late for a session, we will end at the originally scheduled end time, and the full session fee will apply.

“Sarah is exceptionally perceptive, intuitive, and genuinely caring. She has a solid, strong presence combined with true sensitivity and compassion, which made me feel both comfortable, safe, and challenged when working with her. I found it easy to open up to her and I always felt supported. I would absolutely recommend Sarah as a counsellor without hesitation.”
