Social Work psychotherapists are not covered by OHIP, but many private insurers like West Life and Sun Life cover a portion of the cost. You may wish to contact your health insurance provider to determine if psychotherapy given by a social worker is covered under your plan. As well, a referral from your family doctor may be part of the requirement for coverage.
However, self referrals are welcomed!
My fees are consistent with the recommendations from the Ontario Association of Professional Social Workers. The fee covers a 60 minute hour.
METHOD OF PAYMENT:
Cash or cheque at the time of each session is expected, and receipts will be provided at that time.
To avoid being charged for a missed session clients are requested to provide 24 hours notice by phone prior to their appointment if unable to attend.
CONSULTATIONS FOR THERAPISTS AND STUDENTS: Currently I am an EMDR Consultant- in- Training, with K. L Martin, LSW. EMDRIA Approved Consultant. My rates for students and EMDR Therapists are negotiated with each individual.
