As of January 2024, our rates for a 60 minute session our Registered Psychotherapists (RP) is $160 including HST. Play Therapy sessions are $175 including HST. Safe & Sound Protocol Sessions are variable depending on your treatment plan and will be discussed at your first session. Rates with any of our Registered Social Workers are also $160, however, this is tax exempt.
Why is the price different for your MSW vs RP therapists? Please visit this page to learn more about the current struggles in Ontario in regards to our profession and how it is affecting our clinic and the fees you are paying.
These fees includes time spent preparing your unique treatment plan, as well as documentation after the session together and preparation of homework for subsequent weeks of therapy. It also includes any time spent outside of the session (for example - if you need to reach out to us for support in between sessions) *Medical notes are $30 if created outside of session time. It is important to think of counselling/therapy as an investment in your mental health and/or your child's mental health, the same as you would invest in any personal self care or physical rehabilitation. *Play Therapy costs include supplies*
What if I cannot afford counselling? The goal is for everyone to afford counselling services. We are proud to offer "sliding-scale" (reduced) fees for those who are unemployed or for those whose income may qualify. If you think you might qualify for a reduced rate, please reach out to us on the "contact" page and explain your circumstances. If you have benefits through work, you are not eligible for sliding scale services until those benefits run out, at which time we can assess your situation. What options are available for payment? We require that you add a credit card to your file prior to booking as we do not take card payments inside the office. If you are booking online you will have to provide a credit card, but you do NOT have to pay this way for subsequent sessions. Payment via e-transfer is an option once you are an established client, but must be received on the SAME DAY as the session. We do not accept cash or cheques for any reason. For any further questions, please email us directly.
IT'S TIME TO START FEELING BETTER!
