FEES AND POLICIES
I offer a free 15 minute introductory phone call to discuss how I can best support you.
60 minute sessions ~ 2022 Rates ~ $130.00 per hour
90 minute sessions ~ $200 (90-120 minute sessions recommended for EMDR work)
These fees are NOT covered by OHIP as that coverage generally extends to medical professionals only (i.e. doctors or psychiatrists).
Many employers offer benefit plans which provide coverage for counselling services. Please check with your employer or EAP (Employee Assistance Program) prior to the session to ensure they will cover a therapist with Master of Social Work. Some plans will only provide funding for psychiatrists or psychologists.
Most colleges and universities have benefit plans for students, which provide some funding for counselling. You may be able to access this information through your student website or through student services.
I can currently bill some insurance companies directly on the client’s behalf including Medavie Blue Cross, Greenshield, Arete and Compsych.
FYI: If you do not have insurance you can submit your therapy receipts as a Medical Expense on your personal income tax.
How To Pay For Sessions
I currently accept payment through most credit cards or by etransfer. Payment can be submitted in advance of the session or on the day of the session. Receipts will be sent to you directly so that you can submit it to your insurance for reimbursement.
I do offer some sessions at a reduced rate for clients who may not have benefit coverage or have limited funding. Please contact me directly to discuss your needs.
Missed or Cancelled Appointments
Please be advised that I require a MINIMUM of 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel a session. This allows me the opportunity to offer the time to another client and to avoid a missed appointment session charge.
Any appointment that is missed or cancelled without adequate notice will be charged a full session fee.
