My initial phone consultation is at no cost for you to determine if therapy may be a good option. Please inquire about my hourly fees.
Many extended health plans cover counselling services provided by a Registered Social Worker (RSW) who holds a Master's Degree. Please check with your extended health insurance provider ahead of time. Where you do not have coverage, the clinical counselling services provided by a Registered Social Worker can be claimed as a medical expense on income tax. Please retain your receipts to receive a tax benefit when filing your income tax return.
The services of Registered Social Workers, Registered Psychologists and Psychiatrists are recognized as health professions by Canada Revenue Agency. Therefore, the clinical counselling services provided by Registered Social Workers are also GST Exempt.
Cheques and cash are accepted at the end of each session and a receipt will be provided. Cheques may be made payable to TherapyWorks. Interac e-Transfers can be accepted if arranged prior to the session.
Your scheduled appointment is dedicated time reserved for you in my calendar. If something arises where you are unable to attend, it will be your responsibility to contact me by phone at least 24 hours prior to our session in order to cancel. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, I will make every effort to reschedule you for another time that week. If this is not possible, however, you will be charged for the session.
