At our institution, we charge the rates fixed in the Ontario Psychological Association, which is $200 hourly fee. For those who find this fee unaffordable, there are ways to bring down the costs, since we have flexible rates. Do not hesitate to contact our office for further information about discount fees.
Psychotherapy fees are not included into regular health insurance plans, but certain health insurance providers cover the therapy of such issues as STD/LTD, WSIB. Some Motor Vehicle Accident Insurances include coverage of psychotherapy costs. Check with your Human Resources Department if the fees for psychotherapy can be reimbursed by your employing company. Certain cases of car accidents are subject to psychological aid coverage, to be further checked with your lawyer. In certain cases, the money you pay out of your pocket for psychological help can be returned to you as part of income tax return for medical expenses.
A standard therapy hour equals astronomic hour, i.e. 60 minutes of therapeutic session. You can choose to have shorter, 30 minute sessions, or multi-hour sessions (recommended for cases requiring immediate psychological aid). Standard sessions are held at our office, while longer sessions can be held at your place, subject to previous arrangement at our office.
