An Intake Assessment is conducted with an OPTIONS clinician. This can take from 1 to 4 sessions


While on the waitlist, if you require any assistance, please call your intake clinician for support. For instance, if symptoms increase, or things change, please contact us.

Following the completion of an intake, you will be placed on a waitlist


Once your child is off of the waitlist you will be contacted by the clinician to begin counselling.

Counselling sessions are 1/week for 50 minutes .


Crime Victims Assistance Applications

If you are approved for services, CVAP provides financial assistance for private counselling services for immediate family members, victims, and witnesses in dealing with the effects of violent crime. At Options, children are offered free services until the age of 19; however, if you feel more support is required afterwards, financial assistance from CVAP may be acquired. If you are not approved for CVAP, an appeal can be made. If you feel you require immediate services while on the Options waitlist, and have been approved for CVAP, you have the option of using those funds to see a private practitioner. Please Note: If you choose to use your CVAP funding to see a private practitioner immediately, you will be removed from the waitlist. Either way, please let your intake clinician at Options know that you have applied, and whether you have been approved or not.
