My fee for counselling is $130.00 per hour (including HST). I do offer a sliding scale for fees that may better match your income level and budget. During our first telephone consultation we will determine the fee.
Together we can decide how frequently you would like to attend counselling. Another way to make therapy affordable is to attend bi-weekly or monthly appointments. I am happy to work with a schedule that best meets your psychological and budget needs.
Payment options: cash, cheque, interac e-Transfer or Visa through Paypal. Payment is required at the end of each appointment.
Some extended health plans will reimburse people for the costs of counselling with a Registered Psychotherapist. I recommend that you contact your plan provider to ensure coverage and check for any annual dollar limits as coverage varies between plans and providers.
I require at least 24 hours notice if you wish to postpone or cancel your appointment. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged $65.00 for the missed appointment. Please note that insurance providers do not usually reimburse the cancellation fee.
