First Appointment Info
REFERRAL? Your insurance may require a doctor's note recommending therapy, however Marlise doesn't require a referral for you to book appointments.

PAYMENT? Payment is required at the time of the appointment. Cash, cheque, and email transfers to firstname.lastname@example.org are accepted.
FEES? Fees can be viewed on the book online page of this site. Reduced fees may be available for people with financial hardship; please let Marlise know if this is something you need. Phone, video, cancellation, consultation, assessment, and administrative fees are billed at the same hourly rate.
- Fees for psychological services provided by a Registered Psychotherapist may be covered by your extended health plan. Please contact your insurance provider to confirm coverage.
- You may need to ask your employer to add "Registered Psychotherapist" to your approved paramedical providers list, as it is a newly regulated profession. For templates of letters to make these requests, please visit: http://rptherapybenefits.ca/resources/resource-list.html
- Tell Marlise if you are covered through CUPE/SCFP Employee EAP or Medavie BlueCross for RCMP, Veterans Affairs, or Canadian Armed Forces. For these plans you need not pay "out of pocket" for Marlise's services, however you'll need prior approval from your insurance or EAP provider.
