Danya Daccash, MSW
Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist in Private Practice
Counselling for women honours the unique challenges and needs that women face around the world. I am professionally trained in feminist and cross-cultural counselling. Paired with mindfulness & meditation practices, this forms the basis of a precise therapy as well as a deeply connected relationship with my clients.
There are many benefits to seeking therapy over the phone. Firstly, research has shown that telephone counselling can be as effective as in-person support. Additionally, it is a convenient way of getting help as it can be accessed in the comfort of your own surroundings.
Confidential telephone counselling is desirable for many reasons. Telehealth is a safe and effective option during a pandemic, it available while away from home, and is an excellent option for women with time constraints, mobility issues, people who seek a sense of anonymity, and those who live in communities with limited access to quality therapy.

- Complimentary initial session to discuss your issues, needs, and to ask questions about how I work.
- Fees: My current hourly rate for individual counselling is $155 CAD. I personally believe longer sessions lead to better progress, so I offer 90 minute sessions for $210 CAD.
- Compassionate Pricing: Sliding Scale is sometimes available for those with low income. Please note that my sliding scale and pro bono spots are currently full.
- Health Insurance: Fees for a Registered Social Worker (RSW) are covered under many private health plans or employee group benefit plans (often called “counselling” or “psychological” services – if social workers are not listed, please contact your carrier as many will cover an RSW with a Masters Degree).
- Tax Deduction: Registered Social Workers are authorized as ‘medical practitioners’ under the Canadian Income Tax Act for claiming medical expenses on income tax returns, through the Medical Expense Tax Credit.
