Social workers in private practice charge an hourly fee for their services. These fees are not covered by OHIP, but they may be covered under a private health plan or employee group benefits plans when provided by a Registered Social Worker (R.S.W.). Please ask your insurance company before your first appointment.
If social workers are not currently on the list of professionals covered in your insurance plan, ask that it be added. The majority of insurance companies state that they do not cover social work services because the public does not ask for inclusion of this benefit in private health plans. For further information, contact: Ontario Association of Social Workers.
*Ask you insurance company to include social workers in your policy ensure you have choice and freedom in choosing a therapist that best fits your needs.*
Fees are in accordance with the standards of the OASW (Ontario Association of Social Workers).

*Jathina does not accept Interact*
Jathina does not require a doctor's note or referral for therapy. You may, however, need one for your insurance policy. Please check with your insurance provider prior to the first appointment.
Jathina holds in strict confidence all information about clients and only disclose information when required by law or when clients have consented to disclosure.
Confidentiality is crucial in developing a trusting client/therapist relationship. For counselling to be successful, clients must entrust their counsellor with sensitive subject matter that the counsellor is not permitted to discuss outside of the therapy session with the client.
Jathina will discuss the confidentiality agreement during the first session and a signed copy will be provided to you.
