Do you have insurance or extended health benefits? Please read below:
My services may be covered by your workplace/extended health insurance through my affiliation and clinical supervision with Life Restoration Counselling Group.
Very important that you check with your insurance provider to ensure coverage. Your policy needs to indicate coverage for Registered Social Worker (RSW), and double check your annual limit. Each client who is using their insurance for reimbursement is responsible for knowing their coverage and limitations.
If you are planning on using your insurance for reimbursement please let me know right away. Policies and paperwork is different between Life Restoration and my own practice.
Q:What forms of payment do you accept?
A: All major credit cards and e-transfers
Q: Can I pay cash in the office?
A: I don't accept any in-office payments.
Q: How do your rates compare to other therapists?
A: Rates vary quite a bit between counsellors. A major reason is because each of us have different expenses that need to be covered. Generally, my rates are 25-50% lower than other counsellors.
Q: Do you provide receipts?
A: Yes, of course.
Q: Should I choose the Standard Sessions or the Short Sessions? What do you recommend?
A: I strongly recommend the Standard Sessions for all clients for the first session. If you are coming alone, you may find that the short 45 minute sessions are sufficient. Others may find that they prefer the extended sessions. We could discuss it after the first session to see what fits best.
"No need to search through pages of information or be forced to call me to find out how much I charge. I believe in full transparancy of my rates..."
"Though many of my clients are getting reimbursed for their sessions through their extended health benefits, my practice is focused on providing affordable and professional counselling to residents of Ontario who do not have insurance. I think you will find my rates to be among the lowest in the area."
