In the province of Ontario, fees for a Registered Psychotherapist or Licensed Psychologist are not covered by OHIP. However, may benefit packages provider through employers do have coverage for one or both. For those requiring a Licensed Psychologist, I do work under the supervision of Dr. Jon Mills as an Associate with Mills Psychology.
The standard fee for a 1-hour session is $165. A therapeutic hour includes a 50 minute session for the client and 10 minutes for me to prepare for your next session, complete chart notes and billing related documents.
I do have a sliding fee scale for those with limited financial resources (e.g. those who do not have coverage, have limited coverage, students, seniors... etc). If you require a discounted fee, you must contact me to request it prior to your first session. There are a limited number of clients that I can carry at a discounted rate and at times, I have no discounted slots available. For this reason, I keep a list of the clients that I am seeing and when a discounted slot comes open, I offer it up to the first person on the list requiring one. As such, I am not always able to offer a discounted slot to new clients from the very first session.
