My fee is set based on the Psychologists' Association of Alberta (PAA). Sessions are 50 minutes long as ten minutes of the hour are reserved for billing and record keeping. Please note that PAA has increased the rate by $20 starting January 1, 2023. Click to see the most current recommended fee schedule.
Please connect with me for a free 20 minute initial phone (or video) consult to discuss and ensure a fit for services. This is an opportunity for us to speak and determine if we are a good fit for further work together. We can discuss needs and therapeutic processes. While we may discuss some topics such as consent, this is not a counselling or intake session and you are under no obligation to schedule paid services.
Direct billing is available for members of Alberta Blue Cross, Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan, Green Shield Canada and Empire Life. Amounts not covered will be due upon receipt of the claim copy.
You will be provided with a receipt to submit to your health insurance company to request reimbursement. You may be able to claim the health expense on your tax return. Please speak with your extended health benefits provider to confirm your coverage for counselling and therapy services provided by a Registered Psychologist.
Payment is due when services are rendered and can be made by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. ***Starting July 1, 2022, I will no longer be accepting credit card payments. To accommodate this change, a delayed payment schedule can be arranged upon request.
