The fees for each session are $90 (CAD) plus applicable taxes.
Similar to face-to-face counselling, I spend at least 1-hour “with you”, including the time it takes to listen to your concerns (i.e. read your message), and carefully create a therapeutic reply. So for example, “one session” includes you writing your email to me, me reviewing it, and writing an email back to you.
I understand that there may be instances where you have a clarifying question, and in that case, you will not be billed for the message. If you have a question about the e-counselling process, or if you need to quickly clarify something that I said, feel free to send an email with the subject line, “Clarification Requested.”
After you receive a therapeutic email from me, you will receive email notification of an invoice, which you can pay online using PayPal. I accept all major credit cards through PayPal.
A Note on First Session Payment
When you first get in touch with me, you will likely still be getting familiar with how email counselling works. Go ahead and send me an email and outline your concerns, and what I will do is reply with a few more questions so that I can understand how I can best support you. You will not be charged for this first reply if it is mainly focused on obtaining more information. You will only be charged for responses that are therapeutically focused.
Let me know if you have questions about this.
