Do you offer in-person services?
No, our practice is exclusively virtual- either phone or secure video appointments can be scheduled. Virtual therapy has many benefits and advantages to in-person therapy such as comfort and convenience. As well, virtual therapy allows for service to clients all across Ontario.
How much does therapy cost?
An individual 50-minute session is $150 and a 75-minute couples session is $250 (or standard 50-min session for couples is $180). Payment is required at the time of service in the form of e-transfer or credit. A receipt will be issued at the time of payment.
For online counselling sessions, payment is required at the start of each session in the form of e-transfer or credit.
Is therapy covered by insurance?
Many insurance companies cover psychotherapy services from a Registered Psychotherapist, but please check with them to determine your coverage. We are not covered by Psychologists.
Please note that we do not direct bill so payment is still required at the time of service regardless of your coverage. If psychotherapy is not covered by your benefits, it can be written off as a medical expense for taxes.
Laryssa is a registered mental health provider for NIHB (Non-Insured Health Benefits Program).
How long does therapy take?
Individual sessions are 50-minutes and couple's sessions are 75-minutes in length, allowing time for scheduling and record keeping. Depending on your counselling needs, shorter or longer sessions may be scheduled at a prorated rate.
The total number of sessions will vary across individuals, with many needing 6-12 sessions depending on presenting concerns. We will work together to discuss your treatment plan on a continual basis.
What techniques do you use?
Our therapists have experience using a range of evidence-based counselling interventions and techniques. To learn more about our training and therapeutic approaches visit the about page.
What if I have to cancel or reschedule a session?
We kindly ask 48 hours notice for cancelling or rescheduling an appointment. In the event 48hrs notice is not provided or you "no-show", you will be charged the full session fee. In unforeseen circumstances, such as medical emergencies, please contact us to discuss.
