My fees are consistent with the rates recommended by the BC Psychological Association.
The current recommended fee for a 50 minute counselling session is $175.00
Psychologists are not currently covered by BC Medical, but all or a portion of the fee may be covered by your employer’s extended health benefits. Some people may also have coverage through BC Criminal Injuries, WorkSafe, ICBC, or other related programs.
Unless otherwise arranged ahead of time, please pay by cash or cheque at the beginning of our appointment. I do not accept VISA or debit cards. I will issue you a receipt right away, and hopefully some or all of the fee can be claimed back through your extended insurance or on your income taxes at the end of the year.
If you wish to pursue a course of counselling or psychotherapy and the only thing in the way is money, a sliding scale may be negotiated in certain situations.
At the beginning of our first session I will review my Informed Consent Form with you, and answer any questions you may have. If you wish to save time you may print out the form ahead of time, complete it, and bring it with you.
