Counselling Services are not covered by OHIP. Counselling and Psychotherapy is typically covered by Extended Healthcare Plans provided by your workplace, or through Extended Health Insurance that you have purchased privately.
Clients are advised to check with their Insurance Provider prior to attending the first session for the following Therapist designation:
Registered Clinical Social Worker MSW, RSW (First Title)
Psychotherapist (Second Title)
Psychologist Coverage: I work in affiliation with Cindy Stulberg, Psychologist, and services may be covered if they are under her supervision. Please speak to me for details.
Did you know? Counselling services with a Clinical Social Worker is now accepted as a tax deductible health care expense that can be claimed on your personal income tax.
Payment: Payment is due at the completion of each session. I currently accept cash, cheque, and e-transfer as payment for services. You will be provided with a receipt for each session. Clients are responsible for submitting receipts to their insurance provider for reimbursement.
Cancellation Policy: I require 24 hours notice for cancellations, otherwise my policy is to collect the full fee for the missed session. This is a standard cancellation policy for Counselling Services.
You are welcome to leave me a message to cancel your session if the office is closed, or if you are otherwise unable to reach me
