COVID-19 Update: I have openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honoured to support you during this time of uncertainty. I use a secure online video platform called OnCall Health.
Individual Counselling Session Fee: $150
Couple and Family Counselling Session Fee: $170
A large number of extended employer health benefit plans reimburse registered social worker fees.
Individual Life Coaching Session Fee: $150
Couple and Family Life Coaching Session Fee: $170
Life coaching fees are not reimbursed under the extended employer health benefit plans.
The fee per session is based on the standard rates for therapists or life coaches in Toronto, which tends to range between $100 and $250 per session depending on the therapist's or life coach's education and experience. For those that have extremely limited incomes, university students or teenagers paying out of pocket, I do offer a special fee arrangement.
Appointment cancellations with less than 48 hours notice will be subject to a $150 fee for the first appointment and a $150 fee for follow-up appointments.
ARE YOUR FEES COVERED BY OHIP?
While social workers and psychologists are regulated health professionals in Ontario, unfortunately they are not covered under OHIP. The majority of extended health benefits/employer benefits; however, do cover psychologist and social worker service (typically in your health and dental insurance package).
I encourage you to speak with your insurance provider about counselling services provided by a Registered Social Worker and Psychologist to determine your eligibility, approved rates of coverage and claim procedures (e.g., whether or not a letter or referral from your physician is required, details required on receipts, amount per person per calendar year etc.)
