(please see email information below)
Limestone Counselling Coaching & Consulting is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the shared traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishnaabe and Neutral peoples. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon Treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabe peoples and symbolizes the agreement to share and protect resources and to refrain from engaging in conflict. From the Haldimand Proclamation of Oct. 25, 1784, this territory is described as: “six miles deep from each side of the river (Grand River) beginning at Lake Erie and extending in the proportion to the head of said river, which them and their posterity are to enjoy forever.” We acknowledge that we are settlers of this land and respect the enduring presence, deep traditional knowledge, laws and world views of the Indigenous peoples of this land. We accept our responsibility to continue our education and our collective commitment to taking actions towards Truth and Reconciliation including our responsibility to ensure our children are educated on the true history of Canada.
Office hours are by appointment only.
The office is closed on all statutory holidays.
If Waterloo Region schools are closed due to poor weather, this office will also be closed. Appointments will be rescheduled as soon as possible upon re-opening.

Billing / Payment
Fees are due at the time of service. Fees will be charged in accordance with the contracted terms of service. Requested documentation and phone sessions are billed in 15 minute increments according to contracted service fees.
As a registered social worker, it is ethically sound for me to attempt to equalize access to services by providing a sliding fee scale. Please inquire if you may be limited in your ability to pay full fees.
Email transfer, debit, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover
Many health benefits packages cover the costs of psychotherapy and counselling services. Our services are covered under both Psychotherapy and Social Work.
Please ask your health insurance company about your coverage.
Scheduling an Appointment
Appointments can be made by calling or sending us a message. Self referrals are accepted. Please indicate the days and time that you are available to attend. If you are contacting us for the first time, please indicate days and time you can be reached by phone and if you are interested in having an initial phone inquiry prior to booking.
Cancellation and Missed Appointments
Please make every effort to schedule appointments on dates and times when you are able to attend. If an appointment needs to be rescheduled or cancelled, we ask that you give at least 48 business hours’ notice. Less than 48 hours’ notice will result in a late cancellation fee of between half and a full session fee for the reserved time as per standard fees.
