Many extended health benefits provide coverage to access therapeutic services. You are encouraged to check with your benefit provider regarding counselling services provided by a Registered Social Worker to determine coverage and approved rates. Receipts may also be claimed on your income tax, under medical expenses.
I am an approved service provider for:
First Nations Health Authority - Indian Residential School Survivor, Non-Insured Health Benefit Program, & Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Health Support Services.
Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council Mental Health Program (for off-reserve and IRS clients.
The fees for a one hour session are $120.00 for individuals, and $150.00 for couples or families. Rates apply to in person, online, and telephone counselling. Registered Social Workers are exempt from PST and GST so there is no tax on counselling fees.
Payment may be made in cash, e-transfer, or credit card at each session. With online and telephone sessions, payment via e-transfer must be received prior the start of the session, unless other funding arrangements are in place. E-transfer payments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, please also send an email with the password for the e-transfer.
For cancellation a full 24 hours prior to the scheduled session must be given, otherwise a full hour session fee will be charged, including no shows.
