Frequently Asked Questions
How much do therapy sessions cost?
In Whistler at my private practice, individual therapy sessions cost $130 (plus tax) for a 60-minute session. For couples and family counselling sessions cost $140 for a 60-minute session.
I can offer a sliding scale when finances are an issue.
In Squamish I work with Peak Experiencing where therapy cost $135 + tax for a 60-minute session. For couples and family counselling sessions cost $145 + tax for a 60-minute session.
I cannot offer a sliding scale at that location.
Online therapy sessions are also available which $100 for a 60-minute session. I can offer a sliding scale rate for these sessions.
How does a sliding scale fee work?
A sliding scale is a reduced rate offered to clients when there is a financial need so that therapy is more affordable. I offer a limited number of reduced rates between $60 - $110 when clients can’t afford the full fee.
If you would like to start therapy with me, but cannot afford my full fee, please contact me about my sliding scale availability. If my sliding scale slots are full, I can put you on a waiting list until a spot opens up.
What types of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, cheques and e-transfer.
Are your services covered by insurance?
I am a registered with BCACC which gives me a RCC designation which is covered by most extended medical plans. Please check with your plan to see if you are covered.
I am not able to do direct billing however, a receipt with my registration number will be provided for reimbursement purposes.
What is your cancellation policy?
There is no charge if you cancel or reschedule your appointment with at least 24 hours notice. You will be charged for the session if less than 24 hours notice is given.
