My hourly fee for individual sessions is 130$ +HST and is pro-rated according to duration of the session. Individual sessions are typically 1 hour (60 minutes) in length, with the initial session being 1.25 hours (75 minutes). My hourly fee for Couple and Family sessions is 145$ +HST and is pro-rated according to duration of the session. I typically recommend that Couple and Family sessions are 1.25 hours (75 minutes) in length. 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 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.
