Generally, our therapy sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes. However, sessions with couples and families usually need to be longer and, on the other hand, sessions with children with special needs might be shorter. In any case, considering that at Supportive Family Services we work for and with the people we serve, the length and frequency of the sessions are discussed with the clients, taking into consideration their unique case, making sure to meet their expectations and reach their goals easier and faster.
Depending on the clients' needs, affordability and availability, our fees range from $150 plus HST to $200 per 50' session. Patricia Weinberg offers counselling and psychotherapy services under the supervision of a Registered Psychologist or Registered Psychological Associate who are members of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. Although OHIP does not cover psychological services, most extended health benefits programs do. In this case the client submits the invoice to their insurance carrier and is reimbursed. Ask about this option if you have Extended Health Insurance. Extended health plans can differ. Please check your insurance plan regarding coverage and claim procedures.
We also offer reduced fees through our intern program. People without Extended Health Insurance coverage and who cannot afford the full fees, now have the option to be treated by a student from a MA in Counselling Psychology doing her/his practicum at Supportive Family Services under the supervision of Patricia A. Weinberg.
If you are interested in our services and would like to get some more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can e-mail or call us with a brief description of your concerns and we will reply back as soon as we can.
