Services and Fees
In an effort to make therapy accessible and convenient for most, Dara Pappas Counselling offers several choices when it comes to planning your therapy session, including in-person, online and telephone counselling options.
In person counselling appointments take place at Dr Kenny Handelman's ADHD clinic - the Centre for Integrative Mental Health
465 Morden Road, Suite 203
Oakville, ON, L6K 3W6
Online counselling appointments are conducted using the Amazon Chime application. The app can be accessed from your home computer, tablet or smart phone
Telephone counselling sessions use the Vonage for Business VoIP system. No special apps or programs are required for this service. The VoIP system allows the clinician to call the client's home phone or cell phone directly
Counselling sessions are $150 for a 50 minute session
There is no tax added to this rate as services of a Registered Social Worker are HST exempt
Fees are payable to the Centre for Integrative Mental Health and will be collected at the conclusion of each session. For in-person sessions, Debit, VISA and Mastercard are accepted. Online and telephone sessions will require VISA or Mastercard payment over the phone or an EMT transfer to the clinic's email address. In all cases, an official receipt, which includes my registration number, will be issued upon payment.
Mondays 10:00 - 8:00
Wednesdays 9:00 - 2:00 and 7:00 - 9:00
Some Saturday mornings 9:00 - 1:00
Many insurance companies provide coverage for therapy services provided by a Social Worker who is registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW)
Please check your particular coverage with your insurance company prior to your first appointment.
Receipts are provided upon payment
Dara Pappas Counselling and the Centre for Integrative Mental Health do not direct bill any insurance companies
Please note that 24 hours notice is required to cancel an appointment. Appointment changes and cancellations must be communicated through the Centre for Integrative Mental Health by calling the office at 905-845-8850
The full session fee will be charged for late cancellations (less than 24 hours notice) and missed appointments. Appointments will be held for 20 minutes past their start time, after which they will be considered "missed" and the full session fee will apply.
