Psychotherapy for Families
Family involvement is a key factor in success across many domains of emotional well-being and social functioning. Sometimes, it is helpful to approach the challenges or barriers you are facing as a family, to create positive behaviour change. We can help you identify your shared values and begin to move in a direction that will bring your family closer together and closer those values.

Sessions will be billed at an hourly rate of $125.00/hour*. This applies to direct hours spent with the client and family, including the intake meeting and intake assessment sessions (Step 4 and 5 of the 'Intake Process' described above). Indirect hours used to support the client's programming will be factored into this hourly rate. Requests to collaborate with other professionals (ex. school staff, other therapists working with the client etc.) are welcomed. Support with additional indirect tasks (outside of what is typically involved in psychotherapy treatment planning and monitoring) is also available (contributing to a behaviour plan or determination of needs report, writing a therapy letter of recommendation etc.). This time would billed as direct hours, at the regular hourly rate.
The following cancellation policy will be included in your Psychotherapy Registration Form:
I, the Parent/Guardian, understand that ...
In the event of a cancellation, I must notify the Therapist. Cancelled sessions will not be refunded. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, or will be reallocated for additional indirect hours as needed.
If the Therapist cancels a session for any reason, I will be notified as soon as possible. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, or will be reallocated for additional indirect hours as needed.
In the event of inclement weather, Best Behaviour Inc. reminds all clients and team members to travel by car only when it is safe to do so and when you do travel, allow for extra time, take care, and have caution on the roads. If the Therapist is unable to get to a session due to inclement weather, they may cancel the session. If it is a centre-based session and the centre is closed due to inclement weather, all parties will be notified. In both situations, the session will not be billed or paid. Cancelled sessions can be rescheduled at the discretion of the Parent/Guardian and Therapist, or will be reallocated for additional indirect hours as needed. If the centre is open, then it is expected that the client will be attending their session. Sessions cancelled within twenty-four (24) hours notice, even as a result of inclement weather, will be billed in full as a Late Parent Cancellation.
If the client is late to a session, I am required to contact the Therapist. The session will not be extended to make up the missed time. The Therapist will wait fifteen (15) minutes if the client is not there at the scheduled time, and then is allowed to leave. The session will be considered a Late Parent Cancellation and will be billed in full. If the client is not picked up when the session is finished, the extra time will be billed at the regular hourly rate.
If the Therapist is late to a session, they will contact me. The session will be extended to make up the missed time or the time will be deducted from the total session length.
Cancellations extending five (5) consecutive calendar days are considered an extended leave. At least two (2) weeks’ notice is required for extended leaves, changes in schedule, and any reduction in hours. This is to facilitate consistency in service delivery. This includes, but is not limited to, time off while sick, holidays, vacations, summer camp etc. Payment for sessions not cancelled according to this policy may be required in full and considered a Late Parent Cancellation.
Sessions will not be held on the following statutory holidays: New Year’s Day, Ontario Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and Boxing Day.
