"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. The fee for this one-time session is $50. You can get back to me after our session at any time if you want to continue with counselling.
** Note that in the current Covid 19 event, I am not charging for this Initial Consultation. This is to help ease the stress of this situation by not adding yet another expense. **
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 (40)* $125 (50)*
7 - 20 $ 80 (35) $100 (40)
21 (or more) $ 65 (25) $ 80 (35)
* During this Covid 19 situation, many have been temporarily laid off work, and the future is quite unclear. Everyday things are also more stressful than normal. If you have been put in a challenging spot by this situation, I can scale down to 40% of my regular fee. This amount is noted in the brackets above. *
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.
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.
