Health Benefits

Services may be covered in full or part by you Extended Health Benefits. In order to determine if you have coverage to come for therapy, you can contact your insurance provider and ask the following questions:

  • Do I have coverage for Psychotherapy or Counselling services?
  • Does it cover a Registered Psychotherapist with a PhD and Masters in Counselling and being a Psychological Associate who is supervised by a registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists in Ontario?
  • How much coverage is available per year?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • What is the year for coverage i.e. calendar year, fiscal year etc.? Is a doctor’s referral required?

If coverage is available, you make payments for the service and I will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company.
