Counselling and psychotherapy fees are either paid out-of-pocket or through your insurance benefits.
Counselling fees – Out-of-Pocket
$110 per 60min appointment (+HST). Longer or shorter appointments can also be booked depending on your needs. With HST the fee for an hour becomes $124.30, so I round it up to $125 per hour including HST.
For out-of-pocket payments I accept cash, cheques and email money transfers (paid before the appointment).
Receipts not submitted to insurance coverage may be tax deductible as medical expenses. Please check with your accountant to confirm.
My services are often reimbursable under extended health insurance plans. I would encourage you to call your benefits provider:
- ask if Psychological Services are covered and if so what providers are covered (e.g. Reg Psychotherapists, or Reg Psychologists etc)
- how much you have available per year
- when your benefits renew
I am a Registered Psychotherapist and more and more providers are accepting this designation. My services can often also be covered of a Registered Psychologist because I receive supervision from one.
Payment is made at the end of sessions and I provide you with a receipt which you submit to your health insurance provider for reimbursement.
Once you clarify your insurance details, please contact me with any queries.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please give at least 48 hours’ notice.
Once an appointment is scheduled, without due notice, you will be expected to pay a $80 cancellation fee unless it is an emergency.
Thank you for understanding.
