Each session is 50 minutes, starting at the beginning of the scheduled appointment time. Since the relationship between therapist and client is a very important part of therapy, I offer either a 15-minute consultation at no cost or a first full session for $45+HST to see if we'd be a good fit. Just let me know what you would prefer for our first meeting.
My session fee for individuals is $120 (HST included), and are payable by cash or by email money transfer on the day of each session. I can, on occasion, offer sliding scale for those who are in financial need, or if your therapy is not covered by healthcare benefits. If you do have benefits, please check with your insurance provider to see if "registered psychotherapy" is covered so we can discuss this further when we meet.
Out of respect for everyone's time and commitment involved in my practice, I ask for at least a 24-hour notice for a cancellation. A late cancellation will result in a full session fee, unless another appointment can be made within four days. For a missed appointment, a full session fee is charged.
