Counselling Services

I am currently only offering video counselling, with occasional telephone counselling for regular clients on vacation or when there is technology issues. I am not able to offer in-person sessions at this point.

15 minute telephone consultation – Free

This free consultation is to provide us a chance to talk and figure out if we are a good match, talk about expectations and procedures, and set-up the first session.

Individual Virtual counselling – 50 minutes $135+GST

Counselling will be provided through Owl Practice telehealth platform.

Telehealth Platform

Owl Practice is a telehealth platform based in Canada that uses bank-level encryption (SSL) to fully encrypt data to keep your data safe and our sessions confidential.

Please note that I also can do sessions on Zoom upon request.

ICBC

I am a counselling service provider for ICBC. If you have been in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) and qualify for counselling through ICBC. I can direct bill ICBC your counselling fees. ICBC does not pay for missed sessions.

ICBC covers up to 12 sessions within 12 weeks of your MVA. After that, ICBC may cover more sessions based on approval (often needs a doctor’s referral that mentions that the need for counselling is related to the MVA). I can help you navigate through the process.

First Nations Health Authority

I am a service provider for counselling with First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). If you qualify for counselling through FNHA, I can provide counselling and FNHA will pay for it. FNHA does not pay for missed sessions.

Insurance

Many health insurance policies cover counselling. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers Registered Clinical Counsellors prior to our first session. I currently do not have any agreements with insurance companies for direct payments.

Please let me know if you have limitations as far as the amount of sessions (such as insurance for only 8-12 sessions or financial limitations), so we can form a treatment plan around what you are able to do. There are also options available for people who cannot afford the full price of sessions.

Clients

I can accept clients for virtual counselling from anywhere in British Columbia or other provinces in which counselling is not regulated. The provinces where counselling is regulated (and I cannot accept clients from due to regulations there) are Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.
