Insurance coverage

Unfortunately, counselling fees are not covered under the BC Medical Services Plan.  Therefore, as a private clinic, clients are responsible for their fees.   

However, many health benefits plans do include counselling coverage that reimburses you for visits to a Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC).  Thus, you may be able to receive full or partial coverage through one or more of the following providers: extended health benefits, private insurance, ICBC, and the Crime Victim Assistance program.  Please, contact your plan directly in order to determine your coverage.

Cancelling and Rescheduling Appointments

I understand that sometimes you need to change your schedule. For Telehealth sessions,  I kindly ask that you give me 24 hours cancellation notice if you must change or cancel an appointment to avoid cancellation fees. If notice is given within 24 hours, 50% of session fees will be charged.  If no notice is given, the full session price will be charged.  Such notification can be provided by telephone or e-mail for rescheduling or cancellation to avoid hourly cost.  ICBC does not cover cancellation costs.
