Free Consultation

For counselling to be effective, it’s critical to find a good fit between you and your counsellor.  Soma offers a free 30-minute phone consultation, as an opportunity to discuss your goals and our counselling approach, and see if it might work well.  We are happy to refer you to another service if we aren’t a good match. 

Benefits Coverage

Benefits Coverage varies by provider, so it is important to check which therapist credentials your insurance company requires. For some benefits coverage may contribute to your decision regarding treatment, and if so please let us know so we can connect you with the right person. For others, you may not have benefits, or they may be minimal and used up quickly, so in the long run, you may decide to go with a therapist who either specializes in the area you’re seeking treatment for, or who you connect with the best. We find you are the best judge of who you connect with and are most drawn to; that relationship is so valuable in helping you achieve your goals.

It is important to note that while your benefits coverage may not cover your therapy sessions, you are able to deduct session fees as a medical expense from your personal income taxes.

Fees outlined below do not include GST/PST.
