WHO WE ARE

Why work with Oceanside Psychology Group

When you need to feel a difference in your life – not just say the words or talk about it, but truly experience it – we use an approach that works to transform how you feel and live.

At Oceanside, we believe that people already have the wisdom to navigate life’s challenges, they just need someone to guide them in working through emotions and experiences that are getting in the way of living the life they want.

We specialize in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), an approach that is grounded in more than 30 years of psychotherapy and neuroscience research: It gets to the core of what hurts the most and transforms how you feel about yourself and others. It integrates what we know about the brain and how memories and emotions are created, stored, and revised to create long-term change.

Opening the door to new experiences is the first step to living life more fully. We help you create those new experiences.

We help you heal

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a referral?

We do not require a referral to access our services.

Are you currently accepting new clients? Is there a long waitlist?

We are pleased to be accepting new clients. We know that it can take a lot to take the first step in making a phone call to see a therapist. As a result, we aim to keep our waitlist to no longer than 1-2 weeks and to schedule your first appointment as soon as possible. We offer daytime, evening, and weekend appointments to make it easier for you to meet with us when it’s convenient for you.

Are services covered by the provincial Medical Services Plan (MSP)?

Unfortunately, MSP does not cover the cost of psychological services. However, many clients are pleased to learn that services are covered in full or in part by their extended health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please contact your insurance company for more information regarding your benefits.

Do you direct bill my insurance company?

We do not direct bill insurance agencies for your visit and, instead, require that clients who have insurance coverage pay for services directly. We’ll provide a receipt for you to submit to your insurer.

How does payment work?

We require payment at the time of your session. We accept most major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover), as well as Visa Debit, and Mastercard Debit. We do not accept personal cheques, cash, e-transfer, or Interac Debit.
