Fees & Insurance
My standard rate for psychological services is $150 per session. The fee for each appointment must be paid prior to completion of each session, in the form of cash, cheque, or e-transfer to SF@DRSARAHFISHMAN.COM. Many private insurance companies do cover part of mental health treatment. Please consult with your insurance company to see what coverage you are allotted. A receipt will be issued to you for each session that specifies that I am a psychologist with the Ordre des Psychologues du Québec, which you can submit to your insurance company.
During the last number of years, my office was located within the ELNA Urology clinic, on the second floor of the Decarie Square Shopping Center. Having my office within a greater medical facility was an excellent experience and allowed me to collaborate with other highly qualified health-care professionals in order to respond to patients’ needs as they arose. Within a multi-disciplinary approach to care, a psychologist is a full partner in the healthcare team – which many people highly value. As my practice grew, so did my need to expand my office space. Recently, I moved out of ELNA Urology and up a short flight of stairs to the third floor of Decarie Square where I have my own office and can grow my practice. I still maintain very close ties with ELNA Urology and both ELNA Urology clients as well as my own will continue to benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach when the need arises.
Sessions take place individually or as couple. Couple counselling sessions can be scheduled for 60-minutes or 90-minutes depending on the type of issues presented and the therapeutic goals that are established. Appointments are typically arranged on a weekly schedule that is mutually convenient for both of us. As therapy progresses and goals are attained, sessions often transition to every second week, and then to “booster sessions” once a month.
