Location

 

My office is on the second floor of the Village Healing Centre, at 240 Roncesvalles Ave. The Roncesvalles neighbourhood borders Bloor West Village, the Junction, Little Portugal, Parkdale, Bloordale and High Park.

Streetcars to/from Dundas West station stop directly outside the building, and free parking is available upon request.

Regrettably, this location is only accessible by stairs. If your mobility prohibits visits to this location, please let me know and I will work to find a solution.

 


Rates

 

Consultations: 

The initial 30-minute consultation is offered at no cost.

 

Session fees: 

My standard 50-minute session fee is $115 + hst.

I reserve a portion of my practice for those who cannot access therapy at full cost: students and unemployed folks, those with financial dependents, and members of other demographics at an economic disadvantage.  If you require a reduction, please inquire.

 

A note on HST:

All my fees are subject to HST. Currently, both federal and provincial petitions are calling to make psychotherapy exempt from this surcharge; the view is to align psychotherapy with other paramedical professions (ex. massage therapy) and to increase access to a service that is often already stigmatized. The petition to the federal government can be signed here, while the provincial petition requires hard copies of signatures.

 


Payment

 

Fees may be paid by cash or cheque at each session, or by e-transfer in advance. The full session fee is charged for appointments cancelled on less than 24-hours notice.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. Although psychotherapy can be a very vital investment, it is not currently covered by OHIP. Individual coverage varies, so please check with your provider directly.
