Fees and Practice
As a private practice, our services are not covered by OHIP. However, they are covered wholly or partially by many extended health insurance plans. Please check with your extended health insurance provider to determine whether you have coverage for psychotherapy/ counseling services and whether a referral letter is needed. Alternatively, you can also contact us for details.
Psychotherapy/ counseling services can also be claimed as a medical expense for tax deduction. An invoice will be issued to you and fees are paid at the end of each session, which can be used for reimbursement from your insurance company and income tax purposes.
The fee schedule varies between $120-$200/session depending on the nature of the service. A typical one-hour session is 50 minutes long with 10 minutes allocated to documentation and paperwork. Please contact us to further discuss your needs. Sliding scale payments are accepted if necessary.
In all cases, the identities of clients and their self-disclosures are handled in a strictly confidential manner. However, there are a few exceptions to client confidentiality due to legal or ethical obligations. You will be informed about these exceptions at your first session
