There are several options that may be available to help you with the costs of your therapy:

Extended health benefit plans may cover some or all of the costs of counselling with a Social Worker or Psychotherapist, up to an annual maximum; check with your workplace benefit package.

If you have an Employee and Family Assistance Program at your place of employment and this is provided by Homewood Health, Medavie Bluecross or Optima, you may request to see me and if approved, your fees will be covered for a certain number of sessions.

If you are a man in Grey/Bruce Counties and have experienced sexual abuse as a child or youth, I may be able to access funds to cover your therapy.  Ask me about this if this applies to you.

The cost of counselling or psychotherapy by a Registered Social Worker is now recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency as an eligible medical expense for income tax purposes.  

In order to make good quality therapy available to those who find it difficult to pay, I provide a sliding-scale fee structure to a limited number of clients . Ask about this if you cannot pay the full fee.
