Group therapy services may be available. Please visit our website for updates.
Assessment is always part of the therapy or counselling process. Every new therapy relationship begins with an assessment so that your clinician may get to know you and the difficulties you wish to address in therapy. The assessment process may be longer or shorter, more or less formal, depending on your goals and needs.
We also provide stand-alone, psycho-diagnostic assessment services for children, adolescents and adults. This is a formal assessment which may involve a clinical interview, completing questionnaires, or other activities. An assessment report will be provided upon request.
Please note that psycho-educational assessments are not provided at this time.
Psychotherapy and counselling appointments are usually approximately 50-55 minutes long, with 5-10 minutes of administrative time. Most people find that weekly or bi-weekly appointments are helpful. The number of sessions varies greatly between individuals, depending on the reasons for therapy and treatment goals.
Assessment sessions are generally about 1.5 to 2 hours in length. Depending on the reason for the assessment, two or more sessions may be necessary.
Fees for family and individual therapy with a psychologist are $160.oo/hour. Fees for individual therapy with a doctoral candidate in clinical psychology are $120.00/ hour.
Fees for assessment services vary depending on the type of assessment needed, the time involved, and whether a formal report is required. Additional fees may apply for services such as completing forms and reports for third-party payers.
Fees are payable by cash, personal cheque, or on-line transfer.
