My fee for the therapy hour (i.e. 50 minutes) for individuals and couples is $180.
Couples or partner therapy can sometimes benefit from being longer, depending on the people involved. If we jointly decide that we’d like a longer session, the fee is $210 for 80 minutes.
I offer limited sliding scale slots for students, activists, and LGBTQ folks who cannot otherwise afford access to private practice therapy. These slots are often full, but please ask me if you’d like to be put on a waiting list.
Payment is weekly, at the end of each session, by cash, cheque or credit card. Credit card payments are managed online.
Once we have agreed upon a set time for us to meet (usually weekly, although if appropriate, I do meet every second week with some clients once we have established our goals and momentum), this time is set aside for you. You will be charged for this time if you miss it. Please note I require 48 hours’ notice under all circumstances, illness excepted. If you are ill, please give me 24 hours’ notice to avoid being charged for your session.
If you go away for an extended period of time and still want me to keep your slot for you, you may be charged to enable this. We will discuss this together if necessary.
I do not take insurance. However, I will work with you in submitting a superbill to your insurance company to help you get reimbursed according to the rules of your provider. My practice is registered with a company that will submit on your behalf. I will generate the superbill for you, and you can choose to submit it to them. They will charge you $2 per claim filed, and will also contest claims refusals for you.
Please note also that this means you are responsible for weekly payment upfront, and that I am not responsible for ensuring you do get repaid in part or full by your provider.
