Policies and Fees
The fees for the services are charged on an hourly basis at the rate of $180 per 50 minutes of psychological treatment.
It it usually recommended to have a longer first session in order for you to have enough time to provide the relevant information, and for the therapist to gather sufficient details of your situation/condition. If you would like to schedule a longer first appointment, please request that at the time of scheduling the first session.
The fee will be set accordingly, depending on the length of the appointment (based on the rate of $180 per 50 minutes). You may pay by cheque or cash.
Some of our therapists provide psychotherapy for reduced fee of $160-$170 per session. This depends on the availability of specifically allocated sliding scale slots. We make an effort to provide those lower fee appointments in order to make therapy more accessible. In any case, all of our services are eligible for coverage by extended health benefits.
Payments are made in the beginning of a session with either cash or cheque. Receipts will be produced at the time of payment.
Extended Health Plans
Most extended health benefits plans cover psychological services. Please refer to the booklet describing your benefits or talk to your insurance company to find out about your coverage.
Please note that OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) does not currently cover expenses for psychological treatment, however such expense can be claimed as a medical expense on your income tax.
Cancellations need to be made at least 48 business hours ahead of scheduled session. Missed appointments or cancellations, made within less than 48 hour period will be charged according to the hourly rate.
