My rate for new clients is $120+GST for a 50-minute individual or relationship counselling session. Payment is accepted by cash, cheque, credit card, or Interac e-Transfer. For information on rates for group facilitation, teaching, families counselling, or other services, contact me.
I am committed to providing counselling that is as accessible as possible to as many in the community as I can. As such, I offer some services on a "sliding scale" basis. If finances are a barrier for you, please get in touch.
Depending on your circumstance, you may qualify to have the cost of our sessions reimbursed to your, or paid directly to me. Some of the most common programs of this kind include:
Extended Health - Counselling with a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) is sometimes covered through extended health plans. If you have benefits through your employer, contact your insurance provider for more information.
Crime Victims Assistance Program - I am an approved therapist with the Government of BC's Crime Victims Assistance Program (CVAP). If you or a family member have witnessed or been the victim of a crime you may be eligible for counselling with me through that program. Contact me, or go to the CVAP website for more information.
ICBC - If you have been involved in an automobile accident, you may be entitled to counselling for struggles related to that experience. Ask your ICBC claims adjuster for more information, or speak to your doctor about referrals.
First Nations Health Authority - I am a registered provider with the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA), Health Benefits Program. If you are eligible, some of our counselling sessions may be covered through FNHA's Short Term Crisis Intervention Mental Health Counselling program, or the Indian Residential School - Resolution Health Support Program. For more information, please contact me, or visit the FNHA eligibility page.
If you are unsure if you are covered, contact me and we can sort through the paperwork together.
