The office is at 59 N. Court Street, Suite 104, Thunder Bay, Ontario P7A 2V3.
This is at the corner of Court and Camelot Streets. The building is called the Dental Medical Building. Suite 104 is on the main floor. Come in the front door and see signs directing you to the office. There are steps at the building entrance and the washrooms are on the lower and upper floors, none on the main floor where the office is located. Nearby parking is on-street with meters. Please do not park in any of the nearby parking lots or your vehicle may be towed. There is a city bus line on Court Street.
To make an appointment call 807-345-3925. You may need to leave a message for me on my confidential answering system. Please give your name, telephone number, and the times that you are most likely to be available to take a call. I return calls left Monday through 4PM Thursday within 24 hours, usually sooner than that. Calls received on Fridays may not be able to be responded to until Monday. If you have not received a call from me in that time frame please call again in case there was a problem hearing your telephone number or connecting with you in the times you suggested. When I return calls I do not leave a message unless you ask me to do so.
Health care practitioners may fax referrals to 807-345-3925 (and yes, it is the same as the telephone number).
Most initial appointments for individuals are planned for an hour in length. Appointments for couples are booked for 90 minutes. Appointments for some types of assessment may require a longer appointment. I can usually schedule an appointment within 3-7 days unless you require very specific times.
Psychologist fees have not been included in the provincial health insurance (OHIP). You may have coverage through one of the following:
- Extended health insurance through employment
- First Nations and Inuit Health Programs (Non-insured Health Benefits)
- WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board)
- Disability Insurance
- Veterans and active military
- Criminal Injuries Compensation Board
If you are self-paying the cost of psychological services you can use this as a medical deduction for income tax.
Fees that are being self-paid (including ones that an individual sends to an extended health insurer for reimbursement) are paid by cheque or cash at the time of the appointment.
Fees for the service you are requesting will be discussed when you call for an appointment.
