Insurance Coverage, Costs, and Payment

Please be sure to contact your insurance provider prior to your first appointment in order to determine what kind of coverage is available to you.  At this time, psychotherapeutic services are beginning to be covered under an increasing amount of benefit plans.  However, if your plan covers only psychological services, you will still be able to claim your sessions as I am fortunate to be supervised by Dr. Martin Rovers, Registered Psychologist, through my associateship with Capital Choice Counselling Group (CCCG), Ottawa.


One hour sessions are charged at a rate of $140.00 per hour.  Please inquire about sliding scale options if you do not have coverage.


Payment methods accepted include cash, INTERAC money transfer (e-transfer), as well as personal cheque.
