Social Work is a regulated health profession in Ontario, however it is not covered under OHIP. The majority of extended health benefits/employer benefits do cover psychotherapy and social work services (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 to determine your eligibility and approved rates of coverage.
Psychotherapy services provided by Registered Social Workers are recognized as an income tax deductible medical expense by Revenue Canada and are HST exempt.
There is no fee for an initial telephone consultation
My fees are consistent with the recommendations set forth by the Ontario Association of Social Workers
Payment is collected at each session via cash, cheque, credit card or same day email transfer
A receipt will be issued upon payment
I require a full 24 hours’ notice for the cancellation of an appointment.
If you cancel with less than 24 hours’ notice, you will be charged the full rate of the session regardless of the reason, including for no-shows.
