In the first session, an assessment is conducted to help understand your problems, diagnosis, and plan your treatment. You may be asked to complete some questionnaires to help me clarify and understand your problems.
Most individual treatment sessions are scheduled for once each week, and they usually last 50 minutes (leaving 10 minutes between clients for record-keeping and any additional business).
$200 per 50 minute session
Alberta Health does not pay for psychologists’ private services. Fees are set according to the guidelines set by the Psychologists Association of Alberta. Some extended health insurance plans will reimburse all or part of the fees paid to a psychologist.
Extended healthcare insurance plans differ considerably in the types of coverage they provide. Please check your plan carefully to see what the coverage is for psychological services, the claim procedure, details required on receipts, payment options, and whether or not you require a letter of referral from your physician. Psychological services are a tax-deductible medical expense.
There is ample free parking at the Meadowlark Health Centre.
