Psychotherapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario; however, it is not covered under OHIP. Many extended health benefits/employer benefits do cover psychotherapy (typically as part of your health and dental insurance package). I encourage you to speak with your insurance provider about counselling services provided by a Registered Psychotherapist, Canadian Certified Counsellor, or Registered Social Worker (my supervisor) to determine your eligibility.

My Fee:

  • Initial telephone consultation - FREE
  • Standard Psychotherapy/Counselling Rate: $135-180 per 50-minute session
  • Sliding Scale: I offer a “sliding scale” or special fee arrangement for counselling/psychotherapy, for students or on the basis of financial need. Contact me to discuss.
  • Mindfulness Fees: please review the mindfulness programs available here for details. 

Payment:

I collect payment at the end of each session via cash, credit card, or e-transfer. You will be issued a receipt upon payment.
 
University students who currently receive OSAP may be eligible for up to $2000.00 in mental health funding. Learn more, here.

Cancellation policy:

I require a full 24 hours notice for the cancellation of an appointment. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full rate of the session regardless of the reason, including for no-shows.
