The Initial Consultation
The first meeting is an opportunity for me to find out about what is going on for you and for you to experience what it is like to work with me. If we agree it is advisable to continue, we book a series of appointments.
The duration of psychological therapy is determined through joint discussion and ongoing review. Individual meetings run 50 minutes. Online videoconferencing or telephone sessions can be provided as necessary.
Cancelled or Missed Appointments
Except in exceptional circumstances clients will assume responsibility for the fee of an appointment that is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
Psychologists are not covered by Government health insurance (OHIP). However, psychological services are reimbursable (usually in part) under many work-provided and private health insurance plans. Payment is made to the Psychologist directly and receipts can be submitted to your extended health care provider or can be claimed as medical expenses on your income tax return.
My fees for psychological services are consistent with the guidelines set out by the Ontario Psychological Association.
