The cost of your counselling session is $130 per hour when working with Rick Defoe, and $125 per hour when working with Tanya Wright or Marisa Ottens. This hourly rate is below the suggested guidelines for social workers in Ontario. Payment will be received at the end of each session.
As a Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Canadian Counsellor, and/or a Registered Social Worker, our services are covered by most benefit and insurance plans. If you have extended health coverage through your benefits program/insurance, you will need to pay the bill at the end of your session and seek reimbursement from your insurer afterwards.
Method of Payment
Due to Covid and mostly all sessions taking place online at this time, the only available form of payment is via e-transfer.
When Covid no longer presents a safety risk, and when we can safely return to in-person counselling, you will have the option of paying for your sessions by way of – Debit, Cash, or Cheque. Debit will be the preferred method of payment.
Cancellation Policy and Missed Sessions
If you are unable to attend an appointment, we request that you provide at least 24 hours advanced notice to the office either via email or phone call. If you happen to miss a session, and do not provide 24 hours notice, you will be responsible for the cost of that session. The exception of this expectation is in the event of illness, severe weather, or an emergency.
