Counselling and psychotherapy are not covered by OHIP. Full or partial coverage of mental health services may be available through your employee benefits plan or insurance plans. Please check with your plans to determine what your coverage is including:
-do I need a referral from a doctor?
-how many sessions am I covered for?
-how much in total am I covered for?
-does my plan cover services for social workers supervised by clinical psychologists?
Please note that I am supervised by Dr. Diana Garcia, C. Pysch and can issue receipts for insurance purposes.
Revenue Canada also includes mental health costs as deductibles under health care expenses.
I am currently taking new referrals. I welcome referrals from Employee Assistance Programs such as:
-Homewood Health Solutions
-Health Canada EAS
I also welcome referrals directly from individuals, professionals, hospitals, non-profits, and businesses.
My fees are $140 per hour. On rare occasions, I am able to offer sliding fee scale.
Payments can be made in cash, cheque and etransfer.
Missed appointments without 24 hours notice are charged at regular rates.
