New Referrals

A referral, from your Physician, is not required to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sherri Taras. If applicable, it can be helpful to verify with your private insurance carrier, if a referral is needed for the reimbursement of any fees paid for assessment or treatment services provided by a registered, licensed Psychologist.



Scheduling an Appointment

You can schedule an appointment with Dr. Sherri Taras by calling 647-430-9118
or by sending an email to drsherri@taraspsychology.com

Appointments are approximately one hour in duration. Early in a client’s treatment plan, it is common for sessions to be scheduled on a weekly basis or every other week. As treatment progresses, the frequency of appointments typically reduces (e.g., once every two weeks, or once per month), at which time sessions are focused on maintaining treatment gains made to date and relapse prevention. Dr. Sherri Taras appreciates the time, energy and cost involved in seeing a psychologist and works flexibly to meet the needs of each client.



Rates

Psychological Services in the province of Ontario are not covered by OHIP. Rates, per session, are set within the guidelines established by the Ontario Psychological Association.

Payment is collected at the end of each session. Dr. Sherri Taras accepts Visa, MasterCard, Interac, Cheque or Cash. Receipts are then issued to the clients at this time and can be used for reimbursement from private insurance or for income tax purposes.



Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact Dr. Sherri Taras, by phone or email at least 24 hours ahead of your scheduled appointment time. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be billed at the usual rate. It is understood, however, that in some emergency and unexpected situations the required notice cannot be provided and, under these circumstances fees will not be charged.



Confidentiality and Privacy Policy

All discussions with a psychologist are strictly confidential. Information cannot be disclosed without your consent, except where required by law. The latter circumstances refer to professional and legal limits to confidentiality that all Psychologists are obliged to adhere to. Briefly, this refers to situations in which a client presents clear indications of intending to harm self or others, in cases of on going child abuse or in the rare circumstances in which records are subpoenaed by a court of law. These law apples to all health professionals. These limits will be discussed in greater detail during the initial session.
