Psychotherapy

 

Costs

 

My rate is $150 (taxes included) per 50 minute session. Reduced fees may be available for people with financial hardship; please contact me if this is something you would like to further discuss. 

I offer 1 session free of charge to individuals who identify as Black, Indigenous, person of colour, or from the LGBTQ2+ community. I offer these sessions because I acknowledge the power of having a counsellor you directly identify with. I also acknowledge that finding a counsellor you identify with can sometimes take time or may not be accessible. If this is an offering you would like to opt into, please email me here

 

During these sessions you may choose to:

  • Use them as regular therapy sessions, and time to build our therapeutic relationship before continuing forward. 

  • Use the sessions as support to bridge the gap of time if you are on a waitlist elsewhere. 

  • Use the time to collaboratively work together to help you find a counsellor or program that you feel safe, and empowered with. 

 

Payment

 

Payment is required at the time of the appointment. Cash, cheque, debit/credit and email transfers to ctierney@crystaltierney.com are accepted.

 

Insurance 

Fees for psychological services provided by a Registered Psychotherapist may be covered by your extended health plan. Please contact your insurance provider to confirm coverage. Receipts will be provided for your insurance claims. 

You may need to ask your employer to add 'Registered Psychotherapist' to your approved paramedical providers list, as it is a newly regulated profession. Click here for templates of letters to make these requests.
