I don’t believe the fee should prevent you from seeing a therapist. My professional fees are set in accordance with the fee schedule provided by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, but I have a sliding scale system for those in difficult financial situations. Please call me at 250.339.4141 and we’ll discuss what your circumstances are, and if we can come up with something that works for both of us. Counselling services are also a tax-deductible medical expense. I accept cash, cheque or e-transfer sent prior to the session.
Extended health care plans or Employee Assistance Programs may cover part or all of the counselling fees. It is the client’s responsibility to check into his/her insurance plan before we begin sessions. While you are responsible for the fee at the time of the session, I will provide a receipt with my registration number, which you may submit to your insurance company for direct reimbursement.
Appointments can be changed or cancelled with 24 hours or more advance notice. If I am unable to schedule around a cancellation made outside this policy, an invoice will be issued for the missed session. This policy must be enforced as I have many clients waiting for appointments.
