Rates

Regular session (“1 hour”) = $120/hr +HST
Double session (“2 hours”) = $200/hr +HST

SessionĀ Length:
One session of psychotherapy is 45-50 minutes in length so that therapists can make notes after your session and review their notes prior to your next session. Double sessions are 90-100 minutes in length.

First Session/Intake:
There is a flat rate of $100 for the first session (intake).

Reduced Rates:
1. I offer a reduction in rate by $5 per session for Cash/EMT/Check payments to account for not having to pay credit card processing fees.
2. I also offer a limited number of reduced rate sessions for those unable to afford my standard rates. Please contact me to see whether this is an option for you.

Payment Plans:
I also offer payment plans so that you can pay for therapy over time to make it more affordable.

OHIP:
Psychotherapy from a Registered Psychotherapist is NOT covered by OHIP.

Extended Health Coverage Insurance:
Psychotherapy is covered by many extended health coverage plans. If you are not sure whether your health insurance plan covers psychotherapy, please contact your plan administrator directly and ask if psychotherapy by a registered psychotherapist is covered. I am unable to check your insurance coverage. I do not do direct billing of insurance, but will give you an invoice that you can use to submit to your insurance company if your plan covers psychotherapy.

Taxes:
Psychotherapy by a Registered Psychotherapist is a tax deductible medical expense in Ontario according to the CRA (link). Please contact your accountant or the CRA for more information about this.
