Fees and Payment

Counselling sessions are generally 50 minutes in length. However, depending on the needs, clients may book longer sessions (75 minutes). This must be arranged in advance and fees would be adjusted according to the length of sessions. 
  • Individual and Couple Session: $130.00
  • Group Session: $50/person (per session)

Investing in yourself

Therapy services can be an expense, just as gym memberships, clothing and beauty products are. It's a valuable investment that you are making in yourself. By committing to the process, you can enhance your well-being, happiness and your ability to deal with life challenges. The following options may be available to you to finance therapy services: 
  • Healthcare Benefits: Please inquire with your healthcare benefits provider regarding the details of your coverage. While some companies cover the entire cost of a therapy session, others do not. 
  • Employee Assistance Programs (EAP): Some employers offer assistance programs to their employees to help them deal with problems that may impact their health and well-being. These programs generally include short-term counselling and referral services. 
** If you do not have coverage, you may wish to consult with Canada Revenue Agency or your financial planner/accountant  about claiming your fees for psychological services under tax deductible health care expenses on your income tax return. 

Cancellations and missed sessions

If a session is to be cancelled or rescheduled, at least 24 hours notice is required. If you do not provide me with 24 hours notice, you will be billed at the full rate.
