Our Therapy Fees
In person counselling session: $120 per 60 minute session
longer or shorter sessions are available, prorated accordingly
Workshops: Rates vary depending on the workshop
These fees cover the cost of the session, phone calls, handouts, research and preparation time, continuing professional education, clinical consultation, and other operating costs.
Full payment is expected at the end of each appointment in the form of cash or personal cheque. In the event that payment is not made when due, payment will be required prior to scheduling subsequent appointments. In the event that payment is still not made, we reserve the right to employ the services of a collection agency to recover unpaid fees. In the case of bounced cheques, a $40 service charge will be added to the amount owing.
Clinical counsellor fees are not covered by OHIP but may be completely or partially covered by your extended medical plan or possibly deductible as a medical expense on income taxes. Counselling services may be covered under your company or workplace's extended health benefits. If you will be using insurance or third party coverage, you will be required to cover the full fee, regardless of the amount reimbursed to you. You will also be responsible for payment of services should your insurance coverage or third party provider stop funding.
Please be sure to check that counselling by a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) is covered by your benefits prior to booking if you plan to use extended health care benefits. We do not bill insurance plans, however we can provide receipts for you to submit for reimbursement, if covered.
Cancellation and Missed Appointment Policy
24 hours notice must be given for the cancellation of appointments otherwise, half of the session fee will be charged. As there is a high demand for services, your time is reserved exclusively for you and therefore is not available to others.
- Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time will be billed at half of the agreed-upon hourly rate. If you fail to provide 24 hours notice or miss a scheduled appointment for any reason including, but not limited to, bad traffic, simply forgetting, not receiving a reminder call, car trouble, minor illnesses (i.e. common cold), or personal schedule change the missed appointment policy applies.
- Cancellation fees will only be waived in the event of a medical emergency requiring urgent professional treatment, death in the family, or in the event of a natural disaster.
- Clients who do not show up for a scheduled appointment ("no show") are billed at the full cost of their scheduled session.
- Out of fairness to you, if we cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, your next appointment is 50% off. In the unlikely event that I do not show up for your scheduled appointment, your next appointment is free.
