Our fees range from $130 to $150 per 50-min. session, depending on the practitioner. We do not offer a sliding scale. We realize that therapy is an investment, and we can discuss the financial resources you might have available to you to make this happen.
People often don’t think twice about spending significant amounts of money on trips, cars, and electronic devices, but they are not accustomed to the idea of investing money into their own well-being. This is a reflection of the materialistic values of our society, which does not value personal growth and emotional health. Therapy is an investment that requires not only your time, energy, and emotions, but also a financial commitment. We ask you to consider the costs of not pursuing therapy; not seeking help can cost you continued emotional suffering; financial costs associated with taking medications, loss of productivity at working including needing to take sick days and missing opportunities for promotion; and costs to your health associated with binge eating, smoking, drinking, or taking drugs to reduce stress.
We accept cash or cheque, payable to Healing Tree Psychology and Wellness Centre, LLP. Fees are payable at the end of every session. For online sessions, we also accept email money transfers. Please send payment to firstname.lastname@example.org, using the following security question and answer:
"What's the name of the clinic?"
In general, given the deeply intimate nature of therapy, in-person is recommended. However, your therapist can also offer telephone or online sessions as the primary modality for any number of reasons - please see our "Teletherapy" page for more information.
We are not a crisis centre. This means that for individuals who are not currently being seen by one of our practitioners, we cannot guarantee services with an immediate or short delay, either by phone or in person. If you are completely emotionally overwhelmed or in danger of hurting or killing yourself, we recommend that you present to the ER of your nearest hospital, or call one of the following numbers:
That being said, sometimes a crisis presents itself while someone is already in therapy; in this case, we urge you to use the services listed above in the short-term, but to also contact your therapist as soon as possible. While he or she may not be able to respond right away, he or she will attempt to contact you to assess the situation and direct you to the right resources, and if appropriate and possible, offer you a session sooner than your next scheduled appointment. Treatment goals may be re-evaluated at this point, and if your treating professional cannot meet your needs given the severity of the crisis, may refer you to another service either in addition to or instead of the work you are currently doing.
