How Many Counseling Sessions?

I am often asked how many sessions it takes. The official answer is: "That depends on many factors". While this is the correct answer, the average for most of my clients is 3-4 months of weekly counselling sessions of an hour. For couple's counselling (without individual issues) the average is also 3-4 months. For sexual infidelity counselling or other extramarital affairs the average is 4-6months of weekly sessions. This may provide you with the information you need to budget a realistic cost of counselling. In many cases I am able to provide a prix fixe for couples (after proper assessment)

* Sliding Scale

(See Calculator Below*)
Sliding scale is provided for individuals and couples in current financial hardship based on family income, taking into account the combined family income, rent or mortgage payments, number of dependent children.
Please provide Line 150 of your notice of assessment, your last 2 pay checks (and your partner) to be eligible for sliding scale timeslots.
INSURANCE RECEIPTS are not available for sliding scale clients - insurance reimbursement doesn't affect your ability to afford your sessions. When you've reached your limits and no longer require insurance receipts, you may be eligible for sliding scale again. 

First Session

*The first session is a discovery session. In the first session we cover relevant topics and methods pertaining to your situation. This allows us to get acquainted with each other to make sure its a good match to be able to do this work. ONE FIRST consultation per person.
No-Show and Cancelled sessions are subject to cancellation policy available via this link.

Full informed consent available via this link.
