If finances are the only resistance holding you back from getting the help you want and/or need, please discuss my sliding scale fees with me. Together we can agree upon a price that you are more comfortable with, based on your income. 

INSURANCE COVERAGE

Many insurance plans, including employee benefit programs, cover the cost or a portion of the cost of counselling. A receipt for services is issued with each session payment. Receipts may be used to obtain reimbursement from your employee benefits or insurance company. If you have any questions about specific coverage, please speak directly to your insurance provider. Some insurance companies that recognize my professional designation include:
-SunLife
-Manulife
-Green Shield
-Equitable Life
-Blue Cross
-Desjardins

Coverage for hypnotherapy is also available through some insurance plans. Please speak with your insurance provider about coverage. Clinical hypnotherapy, also when prescribed by your medical doctor, can often be covered partially or in full through health spending accounts.

If you do not have coverage available to you, or only have partial coverage, please note that services are also income tax deductible as health expenses.

CANCELLATIONS/NO-SHOWS

Please note that at least 24 hours notice is required to cancel a session. Late cancellations and no-show appointments will be charged at the regular rate, as that time has been lost.
