Research in psychology demonstrates that in many cases, online psychotherapy is as effective as face-to-face psychotherapy. Here are some helpful tips to prepare for your online appointment.
Dr. Martel’s professional fees are consistent with the Ontario and BC Psychological Associations and are $225 per 50-minute session.
Supervised practice associate fees are $150 + HST and are covered by most insurance companies given that Dr. Martel is a registered psychologist who works closely with her associates. Please contact your benefits provider directly to verify your coverage and inquire about conditions.
Payment is due at time of service (e-transfers only). A receipt will be emailed to you following the appointment, which you may submit to your health insurance company if applicable. Some coverage plans require a doctor’s referral prior to receiving services in order to receive reimbursement so please verify your coverage. Psychotherapy fees are income tax deductible as medical expenses.
Your appointment time is reserved just for you. Please note that 48 hours-notice is required for appointment cancellation or the full session fee is applied.
