YUPC is in the forefront of effective service delivery because of its affiliation with clinical psychology at York University. Utilizing the latest knowledge on effective assessment and treatment interventions enables the provision of state-of-the-art services. In addition, when clients include a graduate trainee in their services, they benefit from the enrichment of a team-based approach with intensive supervisory input.
YUPC provides a range of psychological and neuropsychological assessments to assist with diagnostic clarification, treatment recommendations and educational accommodations. In addition to general psychological assessments, the clinic also offers a team of specialists in the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders, Learning Disorders, and Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) evaluations. We also provide assessments for mood and anxiety.
YUPC provides family, couples and individual psychotherapy for adults, adolescents and children. Psychotherapy is offered for a range of mental health concerns such as:
- relationship problems
- parenting concerns
- work difficulties
- school problems
- family conflict
YUPC offers a range of support services for health issues such as Couples Coping with Cancer. As well, the clinic promotes mental health wellness including programs on effective parenting and healthy aging.
What Services are We Unable to Offer?
Our clinic does not have a full-time counseling staff, psychiatrist or emergency services. As such, our clinic cannot provide services when there is a risk of frequent or severe crisis or involvement with the law. We do not provide services for the following:
- Assessments for legal issues (e.g., capacity/child custody and access, intellectual fitness)
- Treatment for alcohol and substance abuse/dependence, or treatment for other problems (e.g., anxiety) if the person is currently dependent on alcohol or street drugs
- Psychotic disorders
- Problems that are associated with a high risk of legal involvement (e.g., violence, criminal behaviour)
- Problems that are associated with frequent and/or severe crises (e.g., actively suicidal and unwilling to contract to not act on thoughts).
YUPC charges a flat rate for psychological assessments. This fee is $1800.00. The assessment process consists of:
- an initial consultation interview to determine the type of test administration required;
- administration of psychological tests;
- feedback session;
- completion of written report.
The fee is paid in three installments: $200 for the initial consultation; $1200 to complete the testing; $400 for the feedback session and completion of the written report. A receipt will be provided for every payment made, which you can then submit to insurance carriers for reimbursement if your policy covers psychological services. Please note that many individuals have some coverage under their work insurance policies for psychological services.
YUPC psychotherapy sessions are billed at $150.00 per session when being seen by a senior doctoral level trainee under supervision of an experienced registered psychologist. If you choose to see only a registered clinical psychologist the fee is $175.00 per session.
A receipt will be provided for every payment made, which you can then submit to insurance carriers for reimbursement if your workplace has extended health benefits that cover psychological services. Please note that many individuals have some coverage through their extended health benefits for psychological services. Please also note that we cannot accept payment in advance for therapy.
