COVID-19 Update: I have immediate 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.
Counselling Session Fee: $150
A limited number of extended health benefits/employer benefits cover social worker service.
Life Coaching Session Fee: $150
Life coaching fees are not covered under the extended health benefits/employer benefits.
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.)
