Individual session: $150/ 60 minutes (includes 5 minutes for session scheduling and payment)
If you would like to arrange a Single Session Consultation of 90 minutes or two hours, please feel free to discuss this with me. If you would like to arrange a 90 minute individual session or a 60 minute family session, please discuss this with me. Telephone calls, report writing, or other services in excess of 15 minutes will be billed at the usual hourly rate and will be discussed in advance with you.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your extended health benefits plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have coverage for a Registered Social Worker for psychotherapy/counselling?
- What is the amount of my annual coverage?
- Is there a deductible for each session?
Note: Social Work services are considered a medical expense tax credit for income tax purposes. Any fees not covered by your benefits plan can be claimed when you file your income tax return.
Cash (exact amount please), cheque, e-transfer or Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Payment is due at the end of each session, with the exception of e-transfer, for which I request payment be made prior to the session from the second session forward. Receipts are available upon payment and session completion, and are emailed to you. I charge a fee of $35.00 for NSF cheques.
I request 48 hours of notice for a session cancellation, so that I can offer your appointment time to someone else. Your full session fee is charged for missed appointments or if you do not provide at least 48 hours of notice in advance. Unfortunately, I cannot make exceptions to this policy except under emergency circumstances. An invoice will be mailed to the address on file for late cancellations or missed appointments.
