rates for one-hour Individual counselling sessions $130. Rates for couples and family sessions are $150. I offer free initial phone or in-person consultations of approximately 20 minutes to ensure that you feel we can work together effectively prior to a first session. These rates are the suggested rates set by my licensing body. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard, or e-transfer. Receipts are issued via email.
Counselling may be covered by your extended benefits, depending on the plan chosen by your provider. For insurance purposes, I am registered with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (#2305). Currently, counselling services are covered by some benefits packages offered by Pacific Blue Cross, Equitable Life, Greenshield, and SunLife. Each benefits coverage is different, so please check with your provider to see if they cover counseling provided by a Certified Canadian Counsellor, or counsellors who are members of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Unfortunately, at this time I am not able to offer direct billing.
I believe that finances should not be a barrier to support. For that reason, offer a limited number of sliding scale appointments for those who would benefit from counselling but are unable to comfortably afford it. Unfortunately, there is often a wait-list of these spaces. For more information, please contact me.
