Referral Information and Fees

Special COVID-19 note at September 21, 2020:    As we enter the Fall,  British Columbia continues to show an increase in new cases.  My sessions therefore continue to be conducted mainly through a secure internet-based platform or by telephone.  I am seeing a small number of clients, where it is warranted and deemed safe to do so, in-person.  If you are a potential new client, please let me know your preference and we can discuss whether it would be a safe option.

To make an appointment or an initial inquiry, please contact me directly. A referral from a medical or other professional is not required.  All communications with me are kept confidential, although email security cannot be 100% guaranteed.

My regular fee is well within the rate recommended by the B.C. Psychological Association. The fee is discussed beforehand and a fee reduction (sliding scale) can be considered for those on limited income

Psychologists’ fees are not covered by the B.C. Medical Services Plan, but if you are covered by an extended health plan, some portion of the fee, up to a prescribed limit, may be reimbursable. Psychologists’ fees can also be used as a medical expense on your income tax return. I issue a receipt each session which can be submitted to an extended health plan or used for income tax.
