What to Expect
Meet and Greet Consultation
The Meet and Greet Consultation is an essential component of our therapy services. During this initial session, we engage in a thorough discussion of your reasons for seeking therapy, your physical and mental health, and your background information. We also inquire about your desired outcomes for psychotherapy and what you expect to achieve from the therapy sessions. Our qualified therapist will tailor the treatment plan to your unique needs and preferences. In the unfortunate event that the therapist cannot work with you, we will provide referrals to other certified therapists. You have the right to notify us if you do not want to continue with the current therapist.
Duration and frequency of sessions
Our sessions usually take place once a week for a duration of 50 minutes. However, we remain flexible in scheduling to accommodate clients' needs, depending on their availability and preferences. We may need to meet more or less frequently than once a week if clinically appropriate. Your treatment's type, frequency, and duration will be discussed during the initial consultation and revisited as needed. Attending therapy regularly is crucial to achieving desired outcomes, and we encourage clients to set aside time for this purpose. We are cognizant of clients' busy schedules and are willing to make reasonable accommodations to ensure their attendance.
Private Health Insurance
We accept private health insurance from Blue Cross, Great-West Life, Manulife, and SunLife. We also offer direct billing with Blue Cross and Green Shield. Clients are advised to contact their insurance provider to verify the extent of their coverage.
Fees for Service
It is important to note that psychotherapy is not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) unless clients work with a psychiatrist or a general practitioner MD specializing in psychotherapy. Our rates reflect the current mid-range in Toronto. The fees will be discussed and agreed upon during the intake interview, and any changes will be communicated to clients beforehand. We strive to provide affordable psychotherapy services, but HST is payable since it is not considered a medical expense.
How to Pay
Payment for therapy services is due at the end of each session. Payment methods include cash, credit, debit, e-transfer, or cheque. Clients will be issued a receipt upon payment, which can be used for insurance or income tax claims if applicable. Clients who submit their receipt to an insurance provider for reimbursement should do so after each session.
Prime Psychotherapy accepts referrals from
We welcome referrals from individuals (self-referrals) and health professionals, including physicians, case managers, and physiotherapists. Our team of qualified therapists is committed to providing professional, evidence-based services to all clients.
