I have been on medical leave as of May 2015, so at this time I'm not taking on any clients until further notice. I am also unable to continue to update the Resources on my webpage. Thank you for your patience.
As of April 2015, I am now a Canadian Certified Counsellor through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). This means that many insurance companies offering extended health insurance benefits will cover a portion of my professional fees when clients submit their claims (with a receipt from me for services rendered) for reimbursement.
Please check out the “About Me” page to learn about the May 2014 launch of my recent book (with Prof. Dan Irving), Trans Activism in Canada: A Reader. (Canadian Scholars’ Press).
Please check out the “Publications/Presentations” page to access my newest (revised) trans-focussed clinical research paper (with Celia Schwartz, MSW, RSW), “A Collaborative Preparedness and Informed Consent Model: Guidelines to Assess Trans Candidates for Readiness for Hormone Therapy and Supportive Counselling throughout the Gender Transitioning Process” (Oct. 12, 2012, revised May 1, 2015).
Please note that I’m now diversifying my practice to also counsel older people/seniors and Indigenous clients.
Please Note: Due to severe limitations around time and energy, I am unable to
respond to inquiries other than those directly related to the contracting of my
professional services. Thank you for your understanding. ~ RR
