I work on a sliding scale between $100 to $150 per session. These fees are negotiable based on what the client is able to afford. I also offer student rates and rates for the unemployed and under-employed.
With respect to the method of payment, I accept cash, cheque, or interac e-transfer. My standard practice is to provide the client with a receipt at their last session in a calendar month (or via email after their last session in a calendar month), with the expectation of payment being made by or at the following session, i.e. the first session in the following calendar month. This payment schedule is of course flexible and negotiable based on the needs of the client. I am, as well, covered by most work-based and school-based insurance plans.
My cancellation policy is such that if a client has to miss a session, it will have to be cancelled at least 24 hours before we are to meet and a make-up session can be scheduled in lieu of the cancelled session. If this is not carried out, they will be charged the full amount of the cost of the missed session as agreed upon by us.
Sessions are available on weekdays, evenings, and weekends. My office space is wheelchair accessible.
