Fees & Insurance

Counselling Fees

Counselling and psychotherapy are paid for either privately (out-of-pocket) or via your health insurance benefits. Counselling is not covered under OHIP. I accept payment via credit card, debit, cash or cheque and provide you a receipt immediately at the end of sessions. I also accept payments via credit card over the phone or via email money transfer. Read more about my fees and health insurance below.

No-Cost Initial Session

I provide a no-cost initial 60min session for all new clients. This makes counselling more accessible and gives you a chance to determine if I’m a good fit for you. If, for whatever reason, we don’t continue to work together I will help find referrals for you that are better suited to your needs.

  • No-Cost Initial 60min Session for New Clients

Counselling Fees – Out Of Pocket

My regular fees are below and can be paid for via credit card, debit, cash, or cheque:

  • $105/60min plus HST for individual and couples counselling.
  • Sessions may be extended past 60min at a fraction of the hourly rate (e.g., 90min)

 Insurance Coverage

My services are often reimbursable under extended health insurance plans (e.g., Sunlife) which cover the services of a Registered Psychotherapist or a Registered Psychologist.  I would encourage you to call your benefits provider and ask if psychotherapy services are covered, how much you have available per year, and when your benefits renew.

Payment is provided at the end of sessions and I provide you with a receipt which you submit to your health insurance provider for reimbursement. Should you use up your benefits, you are welcome to continue at the out-of-pocket rate.

  • Call your provider ahead of time to verify.
  • Ask if you are covered for the services of a Registered Psychotherapist or Psychologist 
  • Ask how much you have available per year and when your benefits renew.
