Pat DeYoung - Relational Psychotherapy
POLICIES / FEES
 
I offer client-centred, relational psychotherapy for individuals and couples suffering from a broad spectrum of emotional, psychological, and relational difficulties.  I work short-term or long-term, supporting clients to make informed decisions about the depth and length of their therapy experience with me.  I also offer clinical supervision and consultation in relational modalities of therapy. 
 
I’m available by appointment for both daytime and evening sessions.  You may contact me by email or leave a confidential voice mail at 416-801-4227.  Email is usually the better way to reach me.  Unless I’m out of town, I will return email and phone messages by the end of the next business day. 
 
If we work together, your confidentiality will be guaranteed, with only three exceptions:  (1) If I believe that disclosure is essential to prevent physical injury to you or others; (2) If I believe that a minor is in need of protection from abuse or neglect; or (3) If my records are subpoenaed by court order.  When I seek consultation, I'm careful to disguise all aspects of my clients’ identities. 
 
Fees: I charge $120 for a 50 minute individual session and $140 for a 50 minute couple session. Longer sessions, with pro-rated fees, are available as my schedule permits. The fees also cover the additional time I spend in related research, record-keeping, and consultation. Fees are payable by cash, cheque, or prepaid email transfer. 
 
If I need to cancel an appointment, I will give you as much notice as possible.  If you need to cancel an appointment, please give me as much notice as possible. 
 
Please note that I charge the full fee if I receive less than 24 hours notice of cancellation, and that this fee is due at the following regular session or within 30 days if no further session is scheduled. 
 
Insurance coverage will work for you if your carrier covers a Registered Psychotherapist or a Registered Social Worker with an M.S.W. When you pay me, I will give you a receipt, which you may submit to your insurance company in order to be reimbursed.
 
If you have any questions about any aspects of my work with you, please feel free to ask.  I welcome conversation, and I like clarity for both of us.
