Some, but NOT ALL extended health plans cover my fees. Please ask your company benefits plan if they cover the fees of a Registered Clinical Counsellor and if so, for how much per session and per year. If they do, you may submit my receipts to them for reimbursement. If not, you may wish to claim them under ‘medical expenses’ when you file your income tax. Any expense more than 3% of your gross income is returned.
My 2017 clinical rate is $195.00 per 60 minutes session plus 5% GST and pro-rated at 15 minute intervals for sessions that extend beyond one hour.
I generally see couples and families for 90 minute sessions. This time frame allows for deeper work where new skills can be practiced and all voices can be fully heard.
Note: Services provided online to non-residents of Canada are tax free.
An occasional 5 minute pep talk is free to existing clients. Telephone consultations are charged in 15 minute increments at the above clinical rate.

I’m doing more and more online work as people’s lives get busier and more mobile around the world. Sessions for new clients must be pre-payed via PayPal or e-transfer and will be charged at my regular hourly rate.
Brief and occasional emails are free to existing clients. Email consultations are charged in 15 minute increments at the above clinical rate.
