What forms of payment do you accept?
We prefer to receive payment through our website (see Fees & Payment). If you require assistance or prefer to pay by other means, please discuss with your therapist.
Do I need to pre-pay for services?
We require pre-payment for the assessment interview for our Anger Management group program.
Do I need to pay for a one-time assessment?
Yes, all assessments are fee-based. Please consult the fee structure.
Do you have a sliding fee scale available for your services?
We only have a sliding fee scale for our trauma recovery group program (known as Men & Healing, Phase I & Phase II). Men who are full-time students or on social benefits or disability supports in these programs can pay a reduced rate. Please request information in the Enroll Online form.
Do you offer free parking?
There is free, two-hour parking behind our building on 1300 Carling Avenue. You will need to take a ticket from the parking machine and place it on your dashboard.
Are your services covered by my extended healthcare insurance?
Our services are covered by most extended healthcare insurance plans. However, we urge you to check with your insurance provider to ensure this is the case. You may also want to confirm the limit for psychotherapy services at that time.
Our services are provided by registered social workers and psychotherapists who are supervised by our registered psychologist.
Please note that we do not directly bill your insurance company. Rather, after each session or group program session, you will be provided with an insurance receipt to submit to your provider for reimbursement.
Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions.
Can I complete my insurance forms before I access your services?
Unfortunately, insurance receipts can only be provided after our services are delivered and payment is received.
What if I can’t make it to a session?
We require 48-hour cancellation notice for all appointments.
If I miss a session, do I need to pay?
Unless agreed upon with your therapist, the full fee will be charged for missed appointments with less than 48-hours notice. Insurance companies do not cover these fees.
How long is a therapy session?
Our individual sessions are 50-minutes long. Most of our group sessions are two-hours long.
Are therapy sessions confidential?
Any information shared with Men & Healing staff will be treated with respect and the utmost confidentiality. No information will be shared without a signed authorization by the client.
Limits to Confidentiality
Some circumstances may oblige Men & Healing staff to share client information without permission, such as:
All clients in a group therapy program sign a contract agreeing to keep all identifying information regarding fellow group members confidential.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
Upon request, you can receive a certificate of completion for our group therapy programs.

However, if you are planning to pay for the client’s services, we will require written confirmation (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) confirming your payment, including the following information:
