Free Consultation

15-20 minutes (telephone)

Consultations are for those new to therapy, or if you would like to ensure I am the right fit for you.

We will spend this time discussing questions you may have about the process, such as what to expect in the first session, how I work, or setting your fee. If Iā€™m not the right fit for you, I may be able to refer you to other resources in the community.


First Individual Session

75 minutes (in person)

The first session is a little longer than proceeding sessions, in order to give us time to get to know each other and identify your needs and goals for therapy, as well as whether you prefer talk therapy or art therapy.

$180.00*

*Please inquire about my sliding scale, which may be available to help make therapy more affordable for you.


Individual Session

60 minutes (in-person)

We will use talk therapy, art therapy, or a combination of both, depending on your preference.

$180.00*

*Please inquire about my sliding scale, which may be available to help make therapy more affordable for you.


Art Therapy Supervision

60 minutes.

I offer art therapy supervision to art therapy students, or for art therapists working towards registration with CATA.

*Please contact me via email or phone regarding questions you might have about this, as well as fees.


Financial Information

  1. I charge $180 per 60 minute session, which is slightly below the Alberta College of Psychologists recommended fee of $200 per 50 minute session. However, please inquire about my sliding scale to help make therapy more affordable for you.

  2. Please note that late cancellations (less than 24 hours notice) or no-shows to appointments will result in a $100 charge.

  3. Many extended health benefit plans cover psychological services, up to a specified amount. It is your responsibility to understand the details of what your benefit plan covers and how to claim the costs yourself, if direct billing is not available.

  4. I offer direct billing to Green Shield, Alberta Blue Cross, and ASEBP healthcare plans.
