Cost & Insurance
Cost - General
The fees are $ 225 per hour for psychotherapy and $ 250 for assessment.
For psychotherapy, the cost will be adjusted based on the number of sessions. For the first 20 sessions, the rate is $225 per hour. Between the 21st and 40th sessions, the cost is reduced to $200 per hour. After 41 sessions, the rate is $175 per hour.
You can pay via credit card, cash or e-transfer. A receipt will automatically be sent to you.
Cost - Assessment
A psychodiagnostic assessment can cost between 1250 and 2000 $
A psychoeducational assessment can cost between 1750 and 2750 $
A neuropsychological assessment can cost between 3000 and 4000 $
A developmental assessment (e.g., ASD) can add up between 900 and 1500 $ to the final bill
Cost - Intervention
An intervention session (i.e., psychotherapy or family therapy) lasts 50 minutes. Sometimes, sessions will be shorter or longer. The session will be charged according to the duration (pro rata).
Families occasionally ask me to write a letter or attend School Meetings. For non-direct contact, like these two examples, my hourly rate will be applied (pro rata).
After each session, intervention or assessment, you will receive a detailed receipt with the duration of the session and my credentials; permit number from the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO) and Ordre des Psychologues du Québec (OPQ). You use this receipt to claim directly to your insurance.
