Most individual treatment sessions are scheduled for once each week for approximately one hour. Group sessions usually last longer.


Clinical services at Toronto West Psychology are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). Fees are set in accordance with guidelines set by the Ontario Psychological Association.

Some extended health insurance plans will reimburse all or part of the fees paid to a psychologist. Also, the Canada Revenue Agency has ruled that non-reimbursed fees paid to a registered psychologist in Ontario may be claimed as medical expenses on your income tax return.

Extended healthcare insurance plans differ considerably in the types of coverage they provide. Please check your plan carefully to see what the coverage is for psychological services, the claim procedure, details required on receipts, payment options, and whether or not you require a letter of referral from your physician.


Payment for services is due at the end of each session, and a receipt will be given when payment is received. Please retain these receipts for your insurance or income tax claims, if applicable.

We accept payment by cash or cheque.

Cancelled or Missed Appointments

A full session fee may be charged for appointments missed or cancelled without 24 hours notice. Therapists designate individual time slots for their clients and they require advance notice to make alternate arrangements for that time. Under certain extenuating circumstances (e.g., medical illness, dangerous weather conditions, etc.), fees for missed or cancelled sessions may be waived. These situations are handled on a case-by-case basis with each individual therapist.
