Although psychotherapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario, unfortunately it is not currently covered under OHIP. However, many extended health benefits/employer and student benefits do cover psychotherapy, just as they would cover dental services and prescription costs. Please review your employee/student coverage.


If you are a post-secondary student in Ontario receiving OSAP, you may be eligible for $2,000 in funding each year to cover the cost of psychotherapy. CLICK HERE for more information.

My Fee
  • Our initial telephone or email consultation is FREE.

  • My rate is $125.00+HST per session. The initial session is 1.5 hours and following are 1 hour.

  • One of the largest barriers to therapy is affordability for those who do not have insurance. I never want cost to be the reason you do not seek support. I am able to provide a sliding scale for clients in need, so please contact me and we will find a fee that works.
