Services and Fees

I work with adult clients (19 years of age and older) in individual therapy. I welcome and respect human diversity in all its forms (e.g., gender, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, culture, physical ability, age, spiritual tradition, body shape and size). Some of the reasons people come to me for counselling include:

  • Challenges in daily living (e.g., stress, worry, anxiety, depression, loneliness, heartbreak, diminished self-esteem)
  • Interpersonal/relationship difficulties
  • Job and life transitions/planning
  • Family of origin issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Personal exploration and growth

Fees

I offer a free 15-minute consultation by phone, to help us begin to figure out if we’re a fit and how I can be of help.

I charge $190 per 60-minute session, which is in line with the recommended rate for Registered Psychologists in BC ($180- $200/hour).  I accept cash in exact amount, cheque, most major credit cards, and e-transfer, due at the time of our session. I will provide you with a receipt at the end of each session.

My services are not covered by MSP. However, you may have some coverage to see a Registered Psychologist such as myself through your employer’s extended health benefits. Please contact your insurance company for more information. Fees that aren’t covered by your employer might also be claimed on your income tax as a medical expense.
