More information about each session type is included below, and please feel free to connect if you have any questions. 

In-Person Session Procedures for Youth and Adults
 

Please note that as with entering any shared public space, there is a risk for transmission, however the following procedures are put in place to reduce this risk as much as possible:
 

  1. I will call 1-2 days prior to your session to do a pre-screening. This is important as if any symptoms are present, this gives us time to shift to a video session.

  2. The waiting room is not available for use. Please arrive a few minutes prior to your session and wait on the porch at Three Tides Wellness. Please call me directly when you arrive (647-990-7692) so I can complete the final screening before inviting you into the space.  

  3. Clients will enter through a front door and exit through a back door.

  4. Both client and therapist are required to wear a mask for the duration of the session.

  5. In the therapy space, the chair/couch will be 6 feet apart to allow for physical distancing.

  6. Hand sanitizer will be available for use, please use this when you arrive.

  7. 25 minutes is scheduled between all in-person clients. This allows me to spray the couch with a fabric lysol product, as well as the high traffic surfaces.

  8. Art materials are not being offered for use at this time. If clients would like to bring some materials of their own to use while seated on the couch, they are welcome to.

  9. Payment for sessions will be e-transfer only.

In Case Symptoms Develop: If you are sick, or develop symptoms prior to our scheduled session, please let me know as soon as you are able. A cancellation policy will not apply for cancellations less than 24 hours for reasons related to sickness during this time. 

Outdoor Picnic Sessions for Children
 

  1. I will call 1-2 days prior to your child's session to do a pre-screening. This is important as if any symptoms are present, this gives us time to shift to a video session.

  2. Please have your child use the washroom prior to the session as the office washroom will not be available for use.

  3. I will be wearing a non-medical mask throughout the session. Please have your child, and yourself wear a mask as well.

  4. I ask you to arrive only a couple of minutes prior to your session and wait inside your car, or outside. I will call to do a final phone screening before inviting you to the picnic space. 

  5. I will be set up with a picnic blanket, and have hand sanitizer set out 6 feet away. I invite your child to set up their blanket around this space, and unpack their picnic bag. Please pack:

    • Blanket​

    • sunscreen

    • water bottle (maybe a snack depending on the time of day)

    • picnic bag with some art supplies (paper, markers, pencil crayons

    • a clip board or children’s book to serve as a hard surface to draw on

    • a small bottle of hand sanitizer if needed.

  6. ​​You are welcome to park and head for a walk during the session, do an errand, or bring a book to read, and return at the close of the session.

  7. Payment for sessions will be e-transfer only.

 

In Case of Rain: I will be in touch on the day of our session should there be rain in the forecast. We can shift to a video session, or re-schedule for another day (no cancellation fee will apply in this case).

In Case Symptoms Develop: If your child is sick, or develops symptoms prior to our scheduled session, please let me know as soon as you are able. A cancellation policy will not apply for cancellations less than 24 hours for reasons related to sickness during this time.
 

Telehealth Sessions for Children (~6 years of age+), Youth, and Adults
 

  1. A telehealth consent form must be completed before participating.

  2. For video sessions: I will provide the link and instructions for accessing the virtual therapy space. The platform that I use is secure and confidential (it is called doxy.me).

  3. For phone sessions: Please ensure that I have your correct phone number.
