In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change.
— Thich Nhat Hanh
I accept payment via e-commerce platform ‘STRIPE': all seamlessly connected to the secure client booking portal. In order to secure your appointment booking, credit card information will be kept on file when your account is set up, and payment will be processed 48 hours in advance of your booked appointment. Upon attending your session a clinical invoice/receipt will be issued at the start.
48 hours notice for appointment cancellation or rescheduling is required, otherwise there will be a full charge for the missed session.
Tax Deductions for Medical Services
As of late September 2012, counselling services provided by a Registered Social Worker, can be claimed as a medical expense tax deduction when you file your income tax. Registered Social Workers are now authorized as a category under ‘Medical Practitioners’ for the purpose of claiming medical expenses.
Extended Health Benefits
For further information please refer to your extended health benefits plan for coverage details under ‘Clinical Social Worker’.
Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure what coverage you have prior to your first scheduled visit.
Please note that should you require services under ‘Psychological’ benefits, please refer to the chart below for fee structure and contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly for guidance on how to proceed as I am an associate and affiliated with psychological services.
Convenient Booking Platform
Attending therapy should never feel like another on-going obligation, so I have now made it even easier more than ever to get the help you are looking for with the launch of a 24/7 online booking system (secure portal). Whether you are looking to book your Complimentary Telephone Consultation to get started, an Initial Assessment, or to continue to receive support, it has never been easier than just the ‘click’ of a button.
