My hourly fee is 120$ +HST and is pro-rated according to duration of the session. Couple and Family sessions are typically 1.25 hours (75 minutes) in length. (150$ +HST for 1.25 hours). Individual sessions are typically 1 hour (60 minutes) in length, with the initial session being 1.25 hours (75 minutes). Please note that the advised length of a session is dependent on number of individuals present in session and personal preference.
Payment is due at the end of each session by cash, cheque, or e-transfer. A receipt will be provided.
24 hour's notice is required to cancel all sessions. The full session rate will be charged if a session is missed.
If you have extended insurance, please check with your particular insurance company to see if the services of a Registered Psychotherapist, Couple/Marriage and Family Therapy, or Psychotherapy Services are covered. It is the responsibility of the client to submit the receipt I issue you for reimbursement. I do not bill insurance directly. Some people may also have a health spending account though their employer/extended health coverage.
University of Guelph students' health plan covers up to 500$ for the services of a Registered Psychotherapist.
If your plan has mental health/counselling coverage but doesn’t recognize the services of a Registered Psychotherapist, there is a possibility that your employer could make a slight change to your insurance plan in order to be covered.
