Fees, Insurance, and Third Party Coverage

Length of session

The usual session is 55 minutes. In some cases we may agree that longer or shorter sessions are appropriate.

Cancellation policy

My cancellation policy is: Let me know at least 24 hours ahead of canceling an appointment so I can provide the time for another client. I charge a fee of $65 for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice.

Phone consultations

As my client, you are welcome to call me for a phone consultation from time to time. If I can't answer, I will be happy to call you back at a later time. Brief phone sessions are free of charge. For longer (more than 10 minutes) consultations, my usual hourly fee applies.

Fees and payments

Full Fee: $130.00 (Includes 5% GST)

Payment by cash, cheque, credit card or eTransfer is requested at the end of each session. Payment may also be made prior to your session through email money transfer at your online banking site.

Insurance coverage

Some, but not all, extended health benefits plans and other insurance plans will cover counselling services from a Registered Clinical Counsellor.

Provincial Government and UVic employees have funding to work with Registered Clinical Counselors.

Some insurance plans will fund counselling only if you, as an insured person, request it. I would be glad to help you work out how to request coverage for counselling services from your benefits plan.

As a Registered Clinical Counsellor my services are not covered by the B.C. Medical Services Plan.
