15 to 20 minutes (over the phone)
I understand that therapy can be quite costly. That is why I offer various session lengths that can fit your budget. Therapy does not need to be a lifelong investment. The number of sessions does depend on what type of service you are looking for and what you take away from therapy. We discuss coping strategies, techniques, and various practices; taking all those with you and practicing them is what makes therapy work.
I do offer a free 15 to 20-minute consultation to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy at this time and discussing whether I might be the right fit for you. Every therapist has a unique style and method in supporting your therapy goals. You may or may not feel my methods are right for you, so I prefer to discuss that right in the beginning. In addition, I prefer to be transparent with my strengths and weaknesses; if I feel I am unable to support your needs, I will tell you right away. From there, I offer 30, 50, and 75 minute individual sessions, and my fees begin at under $60 per session. For more information please contact me.
Unfortunately, psychotherapy has not become HST exempt in Canada. However, the therapy community is working to ensure the government recognizes the need to exempt taxes from service. I do include HST in my service rates, so there will not be any surprise additional costs.
In terms of coverage, I recommend that you reach out to your provider to find out what your plan covers, as every plan is different for therapy coverage. I will provide you with an insurance-friendly receipt that includes all the information about the service provided and the amount paid. This receipt can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you have no coverage, the receipts are still useful for income tax use.
