Fees & Policies

 

FEES

While Social Work is a Regulated Health Profession, unfortunately treatment by Registered Social Workers is not covered by OHIP.

However, the majority of extended health benefits / insurance programs provide coverage for services provided by Registered Members of the Ontario College of Social Workers.

Consult your insurance carrier for your entitlements.

As of September 2012, treatment provided by Registered Social Workers has been recognized as income tax deductible medical expense by Revenue Canada

Please consult this list of authorized medical practitioners for further details.

My fee per 50 minute session is $175.00.

I offer a discounted rate for students, seniors and persons with disabilities.

POLICIES

Sessions will be charged in full without 48 hours notice.

Requests for letters / reports will be charged at my usual hourly rate for completion.

Your confidentiality is assured.

Information you share is collected and stored with strict adherence to Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act.

I can and will only share information about your treatment with your expressed, written consent.

A ‘Duty to Report / Warn’ exists for all regulated health professionals to contact appropriate authorities should you disclose an intention to harm yourself or others.

 

Change is possible.

It can be a difficult decision to seek treatment for sexual difficulties and it is important to seek treatment from an experienced, skilled and compassionate therapist. I welcome any questions you may have to support you to achieve better control.
