Rates and coverage

Details and policies

Payments are accepted by Visa (including Visa Debit), MasterCard, and American Express.

My services are exempt from GST, and are covered by most extended benefit plans (see below). My services are also eligible for the Medical Expense Tax Credit in your yearly filing with the Canada Revenue Agency. If you plan to apply for the Credit, I recommend you keep all of your emailed receipts; a fee will be charged for reissuing receipts.

Note that I require 24-hours’ notice for cancellations. The full session fee will be charged for sessions with less notice. As an alternative to cancelling, you are welcome to change an in-person session to online — simply email me to make this change.

I do not provide direct billing of private insurance companies (this is coming in the near future to BC). I do not complete PWD/PPMB applications. I also do not accept ICBC or WorkSafeBC claims, though I do bill FNHA and CVAP (see below).

Rates

  • Standard session $140

    50 minutes, online or in-person.

  • Extended session $210

    80 minutes, online or in-person. Recommended length for trauma therapy, crisis situations, EMDR sessions.

Coverage

Private insurance

My services are recognized by most major insurers, including Canada Life, GreenShield, iA, Manulife, Pacific Blue Cross, Medavie Blue Cross and SunLife. I recommend you confirm your plan coverage prior to beginning counselling. If you’d like to work with me and your plan does not cover RSWs, you can request coverage by submitting this letter to your employer.

First Nations Health Authority

I am registered with the First Nations Health Authority to provide services under the Mental Wellness and Counselling Program, the Indian Residential School Resolution Health Support Program, and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Program. My fees are fully covered for people approved under these programs. You can contact me to begin the registration process.

Crime Victim Assistance Program

Currently waitlisting CVAP clients. I am registered with the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General to provide counselling to survivors and witnesses to major crimes. Clients are responsible for the difference between CVAP and my fee. You must register with the Ministry, and be assigned a case number prior to beginning counselling. You can contact me for help with the registration process.
