Fees and Policies

Fees

Because I am registered through the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, some insurance companies cover my fees. Check with your insurance carrier. Benefits insurance plans do not cover mediation services.

Subsidies are available for people with limited means. As much as possible, I try to adjust my fees so that you can comfortably afford the counseling you need as often as you need it.

Please contact me for hourly rates.

Payment

Please pay by cash, cheque, or email bank transfer. I do not currently take credit cards.

In person clients pay me at the end of each session.

Skype or phone clients pay me before each session.

You will receive a receipt.

Lateness and Cancellations

Your appointment time is reserved for you. Please be available to start on time. After 5 minutes grace, your time begins and you will get as much time as there is left when you start.

If you need to cancel, please do so at least 24 hours before your appointment to avoid being charged.

Same day cancellations may be subject to a charge.

You will be charged the full amount for appointments missed without notice.

Confidentiality

I hold in strict confidence all information about clients and only disclose information when required by law or when clients have consented to disclosure.
