Counselling & Life Coaching Fees


Social Worker Service Fee

Individual Counselling Session Fee: $150

Couple and Family Counselling Session Fee: $170

A limited number of extended health benefits/employer benefits cover social worker service.

Life Coach Service Fee

Individual Life Coaching Session Fee: $150

Couple and Family Life Coaching Session Fee: $170

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.

Cancellation Fee

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.)

HOW DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR SERVICE?

  • Service is provided in-Person, by-Telephone or Online.
  • Payment by cash, cheque, credit card, e-transfer or online.
  • Payment for service is due prior, at the beginning or end of every session.

  • The regular fee will apply to appointments not cancelled 48 hours in advance.
  • The average time to resolve a moderate counselling issue is 4-5 hours.
  • Reports, letters, etc., will be charged at the regular fee.
