Fees: 
My rate is $90 +HST per hour (travel to and from client + detailed post-session communication is included, travel during sessions for outings is billed). Most sessions are 1.5 hours in duration.

If appropriate, I may provide a complimentary 15-minute phone chat followed by a 30-minute in-person initial meeting at no cost, to ensure I am a good fit for your loved one, and vice versa.

My session fees are reimbursable through the Passport funding program for individuals with developmental disabilities, as well as certain benefit plans (like LIUNA Local 183, for example).
