Frequently Asked Questions
What is your fee for an individual session?
$180.00 including HST for a 50 minute session.
Contact me for more information about group fees and consulting work.
Are your individual psychotherapy services covered by OHIP or Insurance?
Psychotherapy services are not yet covered by OHIP. However, most insurance companies now cover psychotherapy. I am a registered psychotherapist with the College of Psychotherapists of Ontario (#003623), so check your benefit package to see if my services are covered or partially covered. Therapy sessions can also be claimed as a medical expense for tax deduction.
Can we meet before I commit to therapy?
Yes. I offer a free 20 minute consult in person, on the phone or by video chat.
When is payment due?
Payment is due before each session begins. I accept e-transfer, cheque, credit card or cash. A receipt is given directly after each session.
What is your cancellation policy?
I need 24 hours in advance before your session begins or I charge for the missed session.
Are there any forms for me to sign before I begin therapy?
Every client I see has to read and sign the “client informed consent form.” I will send it to you by email and ask you to sign and return it. This form tells you of your rights and responsibilities as a client.
How many sessions do clients usually have?
That depends on a lot of factors such as symptoms, scheduling, finances etc. I offer both long term and short term work.
Do you offer a discount on therapy?
Yes, I have 3 spots available at a discounted rate. Please speak with me if you are in need of a subsidy.
Do you have a waiting list?
Usually. Once you have a 20 minute consult and we determine that we are a good fit, I put you on a waiting list if there are no spots available and let you know when one becomes available. I also provide referrals to other therapists if you need to see someone immediately.
