"HEAR ... TO HELP"
My rate structure is different than most therapists, reflecting my own philosophy towards what's reasonable in getting ongoing help.
Initial Consultation (optional)
People often do what they can to check out counselling, or even a specific counsellor. In order to help in this process, I offer a one-hour "Initial Consultation". There are two purposes for this meeting: (a) for you to "check me out" to see if we seem to be a good fit for working together; (b) for me to get a sense of your concerns, interests or goals related to counselling. I do not charge for this Initial Consultation, since I see it as part of helping people learn about ways they can grow & develop in our complex society.
Regular Counselling Sessions
The fees per session for regular counselling are as follows:
Session # Individual Two or More People
1 hour 1 1/2 hours
1 - 6 $100 $125
7 - 20 $ 80 $100
21 (or more) $ 65 $ 80
Fees are to be paid at the end of each session. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, or by card (debit/credit). If you are paying Online, you can pay by e-transfer, or by credit card.
There are a few spaces for a 'sliding-scale' for those who find these fees challenging; we can discuss this as part of our initial conversation.
Appointments with clients are usually once a week. Individual Counselling is a "50-minute" one hour session. Couple, family, and other relational issues sometimes require longer sessions, so I usually allow an hour and a half for these.
