We do things a bit differently, and that's the way we like it!
Available for daytime sessions at 10:30am, 1pm and 4pm, Wednesday - Saturday
Online Skype and phone sessions are available on request
In addition to offering in-person counselling sessions, I also offer online counselling sessions on Skype or over the phone. My clients who have used the online method have been pleased with the results and found it to be a highly satisfactory alternative that can save travel time and expense. It is also very useful for those who live out of town or travel regularly and are unable to attend sessions in person. Please ask for more information.
Extended Health Care Plans Coverage of Fees
Fees are not covered by BC Medical Services Plan but may be covered by some extended health plans. Please check to see whether your plan covers therapeutic services by Registered Counsellors. If your company does not cover Master Practitioners in Counselling Psychology (MPCP'S), you may consider writing to ask the company if they would make an exception. Because our registered counsellors also specialize in relationships some insurance companies have made exceptions in order to meet the specific needs of their clients.
Rescheduling and Cancellation policies
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment. There is no charge if you change or cancel 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you change your appointment within 24 hours the full session fee will be charged. If you do not call, then I will assume that you are late and wait for you throughout the appointment time and the full fee will be charged.
Your sessions are strictly confidential unless one of the following should occur:
- The courts subpoena my files.
- I am subpoenaed as a witness in court.
- I suspect a case of child abuse that has not been previously reported. In this case I am required by law to report to the Ministry for Children and Families.
- If you threaten to harm yourself or another. In this case I am also required to report this to the proper authorities.
