About David Collict

I completed a Bachelor of Arts (B.A., Honours) in Psychology from Carleton University in 2016, a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Clinical and Counselling Psychology at the University of Toronto in 2020, and am currently pursuing my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Clinical and Counselling Psychology at the University of Toronto with an intended graduation date of 2024. I am registered as a Student Affiliate with the Ontario Psychological Association (OPA) and as a gay man, I believe in giving back and supporting the queer community through research, advocacy and clinical work.

To me, being in the therapy room is an incredible privilege; hearing your story in a safe and confidential space is something I feel lucky to experience with you. Having a particular interest in addictions, mood, queer and identity issues, I also have experience conducting psychodiagnostic/psychoeducational assessments under the supervision of Registered Clinical Psychologists, co-facilitated support groups on topics such as anxiety, depression, body image, and substance and behavioural addictions, in addition to conducting research on queer mental health.

I draw most of my practise from Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) in pursuit of best applying these practises toward your therapeutic goals. Together we can explore your emotions, address behaviours and thoughts you find challenging, and create coping skills in a safe and welcoming (virtual) room.

The decision to seek support can be daunting – and yet a brave act that is an exercise in self-care and self-advocacy. With this in mind, I believe strongly that you come into the therapy space as the expert on yourself. I invite you to reach out so that, together, we can start a journey of self-exploration and insight.

Secondary Assessments for Transition-Related Surgery (TRS)

Secondary Assessments for Transition-Related Surgery (TRS) require an initial 80-minute consultation session and 80-minutes for writing the report. If David identifies only one 80-minute consultation as necessary in order to complete the report, a payment of $250 will be required at the end of the initial 80-minute consultation session and he will produce the secondary assessment report within 2 weeks following the initial 80-minute consultation session. Payment can be made through cash, credit card, debit, or eTransfer.

If David identifies further sessions are necessary and you agree to meet for those sessions, an additional $85 will be added for every 50-minute session to the base amount of $250. If you decide to postpone further appointments, you will only be required to pay $125 at the conclusion of the initial consultation session understanding that David will not create any secondary assessment report until future appointments are scheduled and the full fee is paid.

Note: If you have extended health benefits, you will be able to submit the receipt for this service to your provider for reimbursement if you are covered for psychological services.

David's Information

Cancellation Policy

When you book a session, your clinician reserves their time for you. In the event that you will be unable to keep an appointment, please notify your clinician at least 24 hours in advance, so that someone else may utilize the time. Similarly, when your clinician is unable to keep the appointment with you, they will give you more than a 24-hour notice and rebook to another date and time.

In the case whereby you are unable to provide 24-hour cancellation notice (e.g., you cancel an appointment on the day of the appointment [i.e. the same day] or do not show up for a scheduled appointment), unless for emergency reasons (e.g., medical or family emergencies), you will be charged the fee for your session and payment will be required at your next scheduled session.

Note: Employee Assistance Programs and other insurance-based programs will not reimburse you, the client, for missed appointment costs.
