Therapy involves a substantial commitment of time, energy, and money. Choosing the right therapist for you will make the most of your investment. To facilitate this process, I offer a free consultation session by secure video or phone. This will allow us to discuss your needs and to see if my style is a good fit for you.
My standard self-pay rate is $225 per 45-minute session (HST exempt) as recommended by the Ontario Psychological Association. I request a credit card on file for any missed or late canceled appointments. This card can be used for payment and billed automatically each session. If you want to pay with e-transfer, check, or cash, please make arrangements in advance. I have a limited number of reduced-rate spots available. Please ask about availability at initial contact if you want to be considered for a reduced rate.
Psychologists are a regulated health profession in Ontario and their services are often covered by extended health insurance plans. I will be happy to provide an invoice or statement for you to submit for reimbursement.

- Since I work in two different countries, I have separate rate schedules for each one. At the time the rates were set, they were roughly equivalent. Please understand any exchange rate changes that make it appear that I am favouring one country or the other are temporary and not something that I can control.
