Payment options

Fees are due at each session. Payment is accepted by credit card or e-transfer. You will be provided with a detailed receipt after payment.

Missed or late appointments

Your appointment time has been reserved especially for you, which prevents others from accessing services. Therefore, 48 hours cancellation notice is required or a no-show fee equivalent to the full session fee will be charged (except in the case of an unforeseen emergency or illness).

Clients arriving more than 15 minutes late will be considered to have missed their appointment and a no-show fee equivalent to the full session fee will be charged (except in the case of an emergency).

Third-party payment

Many extended health benefits plans (e.g., Blue Cross, Manulife) will reimburse you for the services of a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) or a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). Check your plan's details to see if it includes psychological counselling or psychotherapy services with a RCC or CCC designated counsellor. You will pay your therapist for the cost of your session and be provided with a receipt that you can later submit to your extended heath care provider for reimbursement. Direct invoicing to extended health care plans is unavailable at this time. Some clients have arranged to have their sessions paid for in other ways (e.g., fertility clinic, lawyer, etc). Many fertility clinics will offer to pay for one counselling session for every completed IVF cycle. Please check with your clinic for details, as some clinics offer direct billing and some do not.
