Fees & Coverage
Each session lasts up to 50 mins at a rate of $150 plus HST. Payment methods currently accepted include cash, etransfers, or credit card. If paying by etransfer, the transfer must be sent prior to the start of the session. The transfer will not be deposited until the session has occurred.
Counselling and psychotherapy services are not covered through OHIP. However, our practice is supervised by a clinical psychologist and services are therefore covered by most extended health insurance plans. You will be given an official receipt at the end of each session which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement
It is strongly recommended to check with your insurance provider prior to your first appointment to see if coverage for therapy services is included in your plan.
When checking with your provider, ask what kind of service providers your plan will cover:
- If your plan covers services provided by Canadian Certified Counsellors or Registered Psychotherapists, it will recognize our credentials.
- If your plan covers services provided by a Registered Psychologist, it may cover our services. Our practice is supervised by a Registered Psychologist which means services are overseen by our supervisor.
- If your provider covers a Supervised Practice, our services will be covered.
Please note that psychotherapy receipts that have not been reimbursed by health plans can be used to receive deductions on your taxes.
A cancellation fee is charged for missed appointments or cancellations with less than 24-hours notice unless it is due to illness or an emergency.
Our practice is a safe and supportive space for clients to work collaboratively with mental health professionals to establish therapeutic goals and work towards self-improvement and understanding. We are passionate about the work we do and look forward to supporting clients in the Ottawa and surrounding area.
