ISABEL BELAND MACP, RP, CCC
Working online with clients, in Ontario
“Sometimes we’re tested. Not to show our weaknesses, but to discover our strengths”
I believe that seeking help is a strength.
I am a trauma trained therapist who has worked with survivors of sexual violence and first responder populations. I also work with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, PTSD, borderline personality disorder and dissociative disorders.
My core philosophy is a supportive environment that fosters the development of trust, consistency and collaboration as part of the therapeutic relationship. I believe in compassion and warmth.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with an online practice in Ontario. I completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree at Yorkville University; and I consistently update my training so that I may continue to provide high quality therapeutic services.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are psychotherapy sessions covered by OHIP?
Therapy sessions are not covered by OHIP; however, many extended health insurance plans include coverage for psychological services.
What can I expect in my first session?
The first appointment is called an intake session. It involves an assessment to understand your history and background, relationship dynamics and the stressors/challenges that have contributed to your needing support. Your therapist will also discuss your goals for therapy and work with you to develop a treatment plan to meet those goals. My aim is to provide you with a safe place to talk about your concerns.
Does health insurance cover psychotherapy?
Healthcare insurance plans differ considerably in terms of the type of coverage they provide. It is
important to check with your
particular insurance plan to see
what coverage they provide for psychological services.
Do you prescribe medication?
No, I am not a medical doctor. Some clients find medication helpful, and some progress well in therapy without medication. If you want to be evaluated for psychiatric medication, either contact your primary care physician or a psychiatrist. If you are already taking medication, I can coordinate care with your doctor.
