Are sessions covered by insurance?

Psychotherapy is becoming more and more covered under Extended Health Plans. Please contact your Benefit Provider or Insurance to ensure that "Psychologist Supervised Therapy" is covered by your plan and please ask me for Psychologist Signed Receipts.

Psychologist Supervised Therapy is provided through collaboration with a Registered Psychologist. Through this collaboration, I am able to extend what I can provide patients, which include the ability to diagnose, consult or refer cases.

Are Sessions Tax Deductible?

For self-employed people: Your sessions may be considered 'Business Coaching' or 'Management Training' which would be tax deductible for income tax and HST and require an Invoice/Receipt with HST number.

For Individuals: Psychologist-Supervised Therapy is tax deductible as 'Medical Expense' on your individual tax form and requires Psychologist-Signed Receipts.
