Psychotherapy is not covered by OHIP or most insurance plans. This means that I must charge a fee for my services.
I use a sliding scale, based on ability to pay, in order to make my services accessible to people with fewer resources. The standard fee is $135 per hour, with the sliding scale going down to $80 per hour. At your first session we will determine the fee that is appropriate for you.
Please give me 24 hours' notice if you need to cancel a session. Clients must pay for any missed sessions which have not been cancelled 24 hours ahead.
I try to be flexible with both payment and scheduling.
I see individual clients as well as couples. The age range I counsel is late teens to senior. A typical session lasts 60 minutes, and sessions are usually scheduled once per week or once every two weeks. The length of time that an individual stays in counselling varies, but several months to a year is typical.
Between sessions, we usually are in touch only to make scheduling adjustments.
Everything you say is held in confidence within the limits of the law.
