Counselling Fees & Services

There is no cost for an initial telephone consultation. Please call me at 289-239-9696. If I think I can help you I will tell you. If not, I will suggest a referral to another therapist as appropriate.

Please see the home page on this site for a list of the kinds of presenting issues I normally deal with as a registered psychotherapist.

The usual counselling appointment is 60 minutes in length. For some couples in crisis, Dave prefers to see each person individually after the first session which the couple attends together. However, this will be discussed at the time of booking and is, ultimately, at the option of the client.

Please give 48 hours notice if cancelling an appointment out of respect for my time and so that I can adjust and help others. Cancellation inside 48 hours may result in payment of the full consultation fee.

Counselling Fees: $135.00 per session. Willing to discuss a sliding scale for those in need. You can pay by cash or cheque though most clients pay via an e-transfer. Payment is due at the conclusion of each session. If you have counselling coverage through employer benefits program you may be able to submit your claim for reimbursement. Check with your individual insurer quoting my Registered Psychotherapist license #002468.  

Counselling is a tax deductible medical expense, according to the same rules that govern your ability to deduct other medical and dental expenses.
