Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

Just send an email or book an appointment through the contact page and I will respond to you as soon as possible.

Will my benefit package or insurance cover the cost?

I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and have a registration number which most insurance companies will recognize this as a qualified health care practitioner.  Contact your insurance provider to determine how much they will cover. 

What is the fee per session?

I charge $175 for a 60 minute in person session. I do work on a sliding scale so let me know if finances are a barrier to accessing treatment. I charge 225$ for a 90 minute session. Also available is telephone or Skype session for 140$ for clients residing outside of Canmore, but still living in Alberta. 

I ask for payment at the beginning of each session in order to be able to move quickly past administration . I accept e-transfer, check or cash.

How does the free 20 minute telephone consultation work?

I will give you a call at your convenience once you provide me with your phone number and we can go over your goals, reasons and rational for engaging in therapy at this time. You can also ask me questions about what my approach to your issues might include and you can determine if we are a good fit for working together!

Where are you located and do you do skype?

I am located at 1205 Bow Valley Trail in the Precision Spinal & Wellness Centre on the 2nd Floor in Canmore.

I also offer Skype sessions to Alberta residents at a reduced rate ( $140 an hour) .

How long does each session last?

Each session is 60 minutes.

What happens if I can't make a session?

I ask for at least 24 hours notice for cancellation. If you are not able to give this amount of notice a cancellation fee ( 175$) will be charged to you. I do understand that there are circumstances that are out of your control, and we can discuss this as it arises.
