Happily, the services of Registered Social Workers are tax exempt!

A session is normally 75 minutes when meeting as an individual and 90 minutes when meeting as a couple.

Employee Benefits for Counselling:  Many employers carry employee group coverage for counselling services with Registered Social Workers.  I am a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and am a Registered Social Worker. Please check your employee benefit package to determine if you have coverage.

The following fees are associated with services:

Individual Services

Initial Assessment …………………………………………………….. $125.00

Subsequent Sessions …………………………………………………. $95.00

With a clear goal and some identifiable tools, an individual can begin making desired changes in their life and continue with these strategies independent of counselling. Anticipate homework between sessions.

Couple Services

  • Initial Couple Assessment ……………………………………….$140.00
  • Subsequent Sessions …………………………………………….$100.00
    (Add $40 for online Gottman Check Up tool)
    Couple counselling services can strengthen contented couples and support couples whose relationship is failing. Over five sessions, couples will identify key issues to improve their relationship. They will investigate past experiences and explore current assumptions that may be impacting them. A variety of resources will be provided to support ongoing changes. I use˜best practice couple therapy protocols. As an adjunct to assessment and if desired, the Gottman online “Check Up” tool can be used. The online survey information can be found at gottman.com/relationship/checkup  * Great as a pre-wedding exercise

 

  • Family Counselling …………………………………………… $140.00/session
    Family life is stressful. It can become more so by divorce, losses, substance abuse problems, mental health difficulties and a host of other concerns that emerge in the process of going through life together. Often youth and parents want an opportunity to explore these issues in an environment where conflict can become more constructive and problem solving more likely.
