Most extended health benefit plans provide some coverage for services that are delivered by a psychologist, psychological associate, or psychotherapist. It is important to note that our office does not bill insurance companies directly. Clients pay for services and then seek reimbursement from their insurance company.

Different insurance plans offer different types and amounts of coverage. It is important to check with your insurance company in advance, to find out what they will pay for. For example, coverage may depend on the type of service that you are receiving, and the type of clinician that you are working with. You will be provided with a receipt that you can submit to your insurer to request reimbursement. When insurance plans provide only limited coverage, receipts may be tax deductible for any remainder.
Our fees vary depending on the service that is provided. Please check our services page for more information about the cost of each service. Please note our fees are subject to change at any time. Please contact our office manager for further information. We accept VISA, Mastercard, or e-transfer.
