We recognize that informal assessment is an essential component of psychological treatment. A thorough understanding of our patients and their life circumstances is instrumental to the treatment process.
We also conduct formal assessments (standard or legal) to determine individuals’ psychological status (e.g., diagnosis), functioning, and needs for various purposes other than to inform our own provision of treatment.
If you are seeking a comprehensive trauma and attachment assessment for a child or adolescent, please refer to the Specialized Trauma and Attachment Services page.
Payment and Fees
Psychological services are not covered under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP). Our services are covered in part or full by most extended health care plans (e.g., workplace and student benefits) and by some government programs (e.g., Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, Veterans Affairs Canada). For income tax purposes, psychological services may be claimed as a medical expense.
These assessments are typically conducted within four hours and standard assessment reports usually require up to two hours to produce. The cost of this service is $190.00 per hour. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, Interac Debit, or Interac e-Transfer.
These assessments are also typically conducted within four hours. The completion of an assessment report for legal purposes tends to be a more extensive process, often requiring five to ten hours. The cost of this service is $225.00 per hour. Payment may be made by cash, cheque, Interac Debit, or Interac e-Transfer.
We schedule daytime and evening appointments. Please contact us to schedule an appointment or to request more information about our general assessment services.
