Toronto (Tkaronto: “where there are trees in the water”) is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and is covered by various treaties including Treaty 13.
The impact of colonialism and white supremacy culture is ongoing in Canada and the world. Structural racism and trauma create particular challenges for members of this country’s many First Nations communities. Through federal funding, there is some financial support available for treatment.
I am an approved healthcare provider with Health Canada’s Indian Residential Schools Resolution Health Support Program (IRS-RHSP). This means that if you or an immediate relative attended a residential school in Canada, you may be eligible for full coverage of your therapy fees.
If you do not meet these criteria, you may also consider my fee option for BIPOC clients. This differentiated fee reflects my commitment to addressing historical and ongoing racial inequities. Clients who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Colour are invited to select this option, regardless of the ability to pay.
Please contact me if you would like further information.
