Meet and Greet
There is no cost for this first visit.
This session lasts 15-30 minutes, and helps us determine whether we are a good fit to continue moving forward in our work together. It is an opportunity to ask about such matters as scheduling or my approach to therapy, and to gauge your own comfort level with starting the therapy process. This is not an opportunity to do a “deep dive” into longstanding issues or detailed concerns; please book one or more full sessions if you wish to fully explore your psychotherapy needs.
Single Session or Initial Assessment - $160+
A typical session with me lasts 50 minutes. Some appointments, such as an initial assessment, one-time consultation, or individual strategy session may take up to 75 minutes.
This is a private service not covered under OHIP. You may receive full or partial reimbursement via third party insurance or extended health care plans. Your visits may also be eligible for income tax health deduction purposes. Please contact me to discuss further.
All payment processing takes place through the online portal by credit card, unless other arrangements have been discussed.
If you are unable to attend a session, please cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
