Frequently Asked Questions

What are your fees? 

My fees are:

$165+ HST for an initial virtual 60 min session

$150 + HST for any subsequent virtual 60 min session 

Sessions are 50 min long, and typically the last 10 minutes are used for wrapping up, rebooking, and summarizing our conversations. 

Why do you charge extra for an initial session if it is only 60 min? 

The extra fee accounts for the time that I spend post session creating your assessment and treatment goals. I am always happy to review goals with you in our subsequent sessions. 

Do you offer sliding scale/low cost therapy? 

Yes! As of 2024 I have opened up sliding scale therapy as an option for clients. A sliding scale spot includes up to 6 sessions at a lower fee ($25-100 per session) with possibility to re-contract at the end of the 6 sessions. 

In a commitment to  keep my rates reasonable, I have created an anonymous self assessment for clients to explore to see if they may be a fit for a sliding scale spot. 

If you are in need, please consider this assessment, and reach out to me if you believe you may be a good fit for a sliding scale spot. 

Please contact me directly at to inquire about the sliding scale availability.

Can I see you even if I am not in the Perinatal Period of my life? 

Yes! While this is an area I specialize working in, I am happy to work with other presenting issues. please refer to my Areas of Interest section, you are also always welcome to reach out for a free consult to see if we might be a good fit.  

What is your Cancellation and No Show Policy?

The following fees may apply to your missed or cancelled sessions at the therapists discretion:

Late Cancellations:

Less than 48 hours notice: 1/2 session fee applies

Less than 24 hours notice: the full session fee applies

No Shows: full session fee applies

**Please respect that Michelle has minimal availability and session spots are needed by others, if you need to cancel/reschedule an appointment please do your best to do so far enough in advance.**


Clients can adjust their reminders in Jane to help stay on top of upcoming appointments (with email and Text notifications).

How do I pay for sessions?

A credit card number will need to be provided to pay for sessions. I will process payment after our session and you will receive a virtual receipt to the email you provide. 

Do you provide direct billing to insurance? 

No. After our session a receipt will be issued to you and you will have to claim the session and fees on your end. 

Why can't I book without adding my credit card info?

A credit card is required to book an subsequent therapy session for ease of payment, and also to comply with the cancellation and no-show policy. You card will be charged the appropriate fee. If you have any concerns with this please feel free to reach out to me. 

Do you offer in person services? 

At this time I only offer virtual services through this clinic.

Until I find the perfect space to host sessions in my practice, I am partnered with the wonderful teams at The WOMB Guelph and The WOMB Milton and offer in person sessions through their clinics. For more info click Here.

Do you work with couples or children? 

Not at this time. however, I am happy to support with relationship and couples issues, or parenting and caregiver support issues on an individual level to an adult.
