Initial/First Session Fee: I offer a reduced fee of $56.50 (HST inclusive) consultation to answer any questions you may have and to give you and I the opportunity to determine whether I am the right therapist for you.
Regular Session Fee: Following the initial session, the fee for a 60-minute session is $125 (HST inclusive).
To start, I recommend that we meet weekly for at least four weekly consecutive sessions to establish our work together.
After that time, frequency (once a week or once every two weeks) can be adjusted based on your needs.
Sliding Scale Availability
Currently (2019): Sliding scale and reduced fee openings are not available at this time.
I maintain a certain number of clients on a sliding scale, which means that, when available, I can offer a reduced fee based on individual financial circumstances and availability.
Please inquire if you are in financial difficulty before confirming a consultation session.
Couples’ & Relationship Therapy
I work exclusively with adult individuals for psychotherapy.
However, I do work with individuals who are looking to explore and understand how to improve relationships.
If you would like recommendations for couples therapists who may be accepting clients at this time, please send me a note via the Contact Form.
Private Practice Consultation
If you are considering starting a private practice or have any questions about maintaining, sustaining or other elements of what’s involved in having a private practice, I offer 30 minute consultation or mentorship sessions for $75.00 (tax inclusive) per session.
Please contact me via the Contact Form to set up a time to connect.
Payment Information & Policies
I accept payments in cash, cheque and credit cards (Visa & Mastercard) at the conclusion of each session.
Payments via email transfer are also accepted in advance of the session and it can be made to: mio[at]mioyokoi.com.
Cancellation policy: If an appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, there will be a cancellation fee charged regardless of the reason.
A missed session, that is a session missed without prior notice or message, is subject to the full session fee.
Insurance coverage: Psychotherapy services provided by private practitioners are not covered by OHIP.
However, there are a growing number of extended benefits insurance plans that are accepting coverage for Registered Psychotherapists (RP) who are members of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, please inquire directly with your insurance provider to confirm.
If Registered Psychotherapists are covered under your insurance benefits, the session fee will be payable at the time of the appointment and a receipt will be issued to you to be submitted to your insurance provider.
More information can be found on my post discussing insurance coverage.
If a booked reduced fee consultation meeting is cancelled without 24 hours notice, a $50 fee will be applicable for a rebooked consultation meeting.
My hours are Monday to Friday from noon to 8pm.
I look forward to hearing from you.
