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.
There is free underground and street level parking at the West Block Building.
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.
Payment for services is due by the end of each session, and a receipt will be given when payment is received. Please retain these receipts for your insurance or income tax claims, if applicable.
Payment by cash, email money transfer, and credit card (Visa, MasterCard), is accepted.I am able to direct bill Alberta Blue Cross for my fee.
For all other insurance plans, I will provide a receipt that can be submitted for reimbursement.
Cancellations are accepted up to 24 hours before a session. The full fee will be charged for a session that is cancelled with less than 24 hours. Missed appointments that are not cancelled will be charged the full fee.
I am happy to answer questions that you may have about my services and costs at any time.
