Book With Ruth Nixon

Appointments are available Monday to Friday.

PLEASE NOTE: Ruth offers phone and video sessions only.

Ruth is only seeing returning clients at this time.

As a Registered Psychotherapist, Ruth's services are often fully or partially covered if you have an extended health benefit plan (e.g. Sun Life, Manulife) that includes coverage for a "Registered Psychotherapist". 


After booking your appointment online, you'll receive a confirmation email with important details about your appointment (e.g. instructions on setting up phone or video appointments).

All clients must complete both an Intake Form and a Consent Form prior to your first visit. To access these forms, go to our Client Portal and chose the form that applies to your situation. Each form can be completed and submitted securely online. Contact us at 905-321-0550 if you have any questions about how to complete these forms.

Booking and 24-hour Cancellation Policy:

  • A valid credit card is required to book your first appointment.

  • Your appointment time is reserved just for you. If this is your first session with us, your credit card will not be charged, but secures your appointment and will only be charged for missed appointments or late cancellations. A $1 charge will appear on your card for validation purposes only, and will be released (voided) after six days.

  • A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in the therapists' day that could have been filled by another client. As such, we require 24 hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Clients who provide less than 24 hours notice or miss their appointment will be charged the full appointment amount.

  • To cancel or reschedule more than 24 hours before your appointment, you can use the 'Cancel/Reschedule' link in your confirmation email or call our office at 905-321-0550.
