Fees & Insurance:
  • Psychotherapy services are not covered by OHIP, but most of the extended health care insurance plans cover all or a portion of the cost. Call your insurance company to inquire about your insurance policy, coverage and refund policy. 

  • You can call or email your insurance provider to ask about the amount they cover your plan for counselling &  psychotherapy per year. You can also inquire about the date of renewal of that coverage yearly. 

  • Once your insurance coverage ends, you may ask your psychotherapist for a sliding scale that is suitable to your income to continue therapy until your new year coverage gets renewed.  This ensures that you continue receiving the counselling and psychotherapy services you may need even if your insurance does not cover.

  • In cases where the insurance plan does not cover all the session, or if the client is not eligible for insurance coverage, therapy services can be claimed as a medical expense for income tax return.   

  • I am a Registered Psychotherapist, my registration number at The College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario is 6324. Some insurance policies cover all or a portion of the cost. 

  • Session Fee is set at $137.17 plus taxes. Sliding Scale is available for clients who have no insurance plan. Depending on the client income a reduced rate can be discussed with the Psychotherapist. Please feel free to phone and ask for the sliding scale at 613-854-8883

Method of Payment:
  • Payment is due at the end of each session and can be made by debit, credit or cash.  

  •  A receipt will be issued that you may submit for insurance reimbursement. An invoice is provided following each session.
