Counselling does work! Counselling is highly effective for a wide range of minor and more difficult issues both in the short and long term.
As a counselling psychologist I provide services to adults 18 years and older in:
Sessions are usually 50 minutes for individuals or 50 - 100 minutes for couples or families. Referrals from physicians are welcomed but are not required to begin counselling services - you can contact me directly. A free 15 minute phone consultation is available upon booking your first appointment. Continuity of sessions is important so you are encouraged to plan ahead in scheduling your appointments. Please note that there is a 24-hour Cancellation Policy.
I am an approved provider for:
- Veterans Affairs
- Physician and Family Support Program (PFSP)
- Alberta-Pacific Forest Industries (ALPAC)
Fees for counselling, report writing, letters, and completion of forms are set in accordance with the Recommended Fee Schedule published by the Psychologists Association of Alberta and are payable by cash or cheque at the time of the appointment. A receipt is provided at the end of each appointment for your records and reimbursement purposes. As a regulated health profession, often fees are covered in whole or in part through most extended health care plans or employee and family assistance plans - please check with your insurance provider or employer about possible coverage. Fees can also be claimed as a tax deduction for health services.
