Several new developments have happened with Anchor of Hope. We now have an online booking calendar so anyone can browse the available times and grab the one that fits best with your schedule. This new tool will send you email reminders prior to your session, no matter how far in advance you book your session(s) and rescheduling or cancelling your appointments can be done with a click! The link to that scheduler is:
Also, huge victory... I am now recognized as a registered psychotherapist and most insurance companies will now allow for submissions against your health care plans for reimbursement. This includes Manulife, Blue Cross, and SunLife.
Anchor of Hope is soon to be expanding! We are starting a build on a new property in Bayside (Airdrie) that will include a side entrance for all clients, and my soon to be clinical partner (and wife) Melissa who will be launching her wellness / holistic health practice as an extension of Anchor of Hope. Stay tuned for more information. This may start to impact location of services in the short term as we prepare to list our existing home and throughout the moving process so we will keep everyone who is currently a client up to date on service locations and options.
With all the preventative measures that our country is taking to reduce the spread of the Corona Virus, I wanted to take a brief minute to reach out to every client, past and current, and ask you all to remember to not lose hope. Fear cripples where hope can set us free. Take care of yourselves, take care with others, and regarding any appointments with Anchor of Hope, we will remain open for anyone preferring face to face sessions, but videoconferencing is another option if you prefer to stay at home but still keep your booked appointment. Also, for anyone coming for face to face sessions, out of respect for everyone, (as hard as this will be for me ) I will not be extending any handshakes or hugs until this threat has passed. As for cleanliness and protection within the office, there is hand sanitizer available and all surfaces (chairs and tables) will be disinfected between sessions. Thank you all in advance for your understanding and we will see you in person (or virtually) very soon!
