We offer a free 20-minute initial consultation, via email or phone, to identify your concerns and/or reasons for seeking counselling services. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the counselling process, and to see if you feel we are a “good fit”.
Subsequent sessions are $110 for one 50- minute session of individual counselling or $125 for one 50-minute session of couples counselling, not including GST. We have a limited number of “sliding fee scale” slots available in our schedule for individuals experiencing financial hardship.
All payments are due at the end of each session. We currently accept Mastercard, Visa, cash or personal cheques.
Counselling services are not covered by Medical Services Plan (MSP) in British Columbia, however most extended health plans provide coverage for mental health services. It is important that you find out exactly what counselling services your insurance policy covers. If your insurance plans does cover counselling services provided by a Registered Clinical Counsellor or Registered Social Worker, you are still required to make full payment at the time of service, then you will be issued a receipt which you may submit to the insurance company for reimbursement.
Funding for counselling services may also be available through Crime Victims Assistance Program, Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) or WorkSafeBC, if you currently have an open claim.
Receipts not submitted for insurance claims may be tax deductible under medical expenses.
Our goal is to make counselling accessible to more people and we do not want finances to stop individuals from seeking help. Please contact us to find a solution that will meet your needs.
