Fees & Payment:

I am happy to communicate with you during a free consultation to discuss your needs and goals. 

My fees are consistent with the OPA suggested rates.  While fees for therapy are generally set and are consistent during our work together I am able to offer a sliding scale based on need. Should there be any changes to fees, you will be provided notice ahead of time. Fees for assessments can be determined on the nature of and length of assessment needed. I am happy to discuss fees and scheduling before setting the first appointment. 

 

Payment is due at the end of each session and can be paid by cash, cheque, credit card, or email transfer. You will be provided with a receipt for services that you can submit for insurance or for income tax purposes. 

 

It is important to note that services by psychologists are not covered by OHIP. Therefore, it is recommended if you have extended health benefits to check if services can be covered in full or in part. Other questions to ask your extended health insurance provider may include:
 

  • What services are covered and for how much per session or service?

  • When do services renew each year?

  • Are there limits to what is covered?

  • Is approval from a primary care physician required to access insurance coverage?

Cancellation Policy:

Please be aware that you may be billed for the full rate of sessions missed without at least 24-hour cancellation notice.
