How do my rates compare?
A psychotherapy session in the GTA is now typically over $115.00/session, which for many is cost-prohibitive. My goal is to offer therapy at more affordable rates.
Think of therapy as investment in yourself.
What do the fees cover?
My fees cover office rental, insurance, additional time I spend in related research, administration, and clinical supervision.
Fees are payable at each session. I accept cash, cheque, or credit cards (add 2.75% to cover service charges). Payment by E-transfer can be arranged. If you pay this way, I request you pay before the session.
Please note that I do not accept payment through third parties: if someone else (partner, parent, etc.) is paying for your sessions, I ask that you get the payment from them and pay me directly, as outlined above.
I will Email you receipts after each session, regardless of how you choose to pay.
Will my work benefits cover therapy?
Unfortunately, the only answer I can give you is "Maybe," Some work insurance benefits plans do and some don't. Please contact your work's provider or HR department for details. Please note that I am not yet an RP (Registered Psychotherapist); this could make the a determining factor in whether sessions are covered.
Can I claim therapy on my income taxes?
Again, the best answer I can give is "Maybe." I am not in a position to give tax advice.
