Rates

In keeping with the industry standard rates for psychological services in Alberta, I currently charge $200 per 50 minute session. You can find the Recommended Fee Schedule for Psychologists practicing in Alberta available on the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta website.

Insurance

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for mental health services.

I would recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Is there a maximum covered cost per session and/or per coverage period? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions I can have per coverage period? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Payment

I accept cash, cheque, and email money transfer as forms of payment. Payment must be made prior to each session, or upon arrival for your session.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.

Any Other Questions

Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
