Some of the questions you may ask when contacting me or booking an appointment:
What number do I call?
My contact phone number is 604-316-3585, and you can also text this number.
I can also be reached by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and all contact is strictly confidential.
How long are the appointments?
The therapy appointments are a 55 minute hour.
What if I change my mind about the appointment I made, or I find I can’t make it?As I have set a significant amount of time aside specifically for your benefit. I ask that you attend your appointments as scheduled. There are times when illness occurs or an urgent matter arises. In those cases, I ask that you cancel with at least 24 hours notice. With less than 1 full day’s notice, 50% of the fee is charged. If you do not call to cancel the appointment, the full fee is charged.
What is your fee?
My fee is $110.00 per session plus GST; $115.50. Payment is accepted at the end of each session via cash, credit card or cheque; or prior to session by e-transfer (to email@example.com).These fees cover the costs of the session, phone calls, research and preparation time, continuing professional education, professional certification, and other operating costs.
Some EAP (employee assistance plans) cover counselling. You will need to check with your plan provider, your employer or the insurance company itself for the details. Plans that cover “counselling” or Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC) may cover my services. I am also registered with the Crime Victim Assistance program.
Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP):
If you have been a victim of a crime in British Columbia and the crime has been reported to the police, you may qualify for therapy funding from CVAP. Typically, 12 sessions are granted, with the possibility of renewing the application.
If you have been a victim of a crime in another province, you would need to contact the corresponding program in that province. Programs to compensate victims of a crime vary widely between provinces.
