Finding the right counsellor can be a daunting task.  A free 20-minute initial consultation may help ease your concerns. Whether it's an in-person, virtual, or phone appointment, I'm here to ensure that you feel comfortable taking this first step. During your consultation, we'll get to know you and your concerns in a safe and confidential environment, helping you to determine if we're the  fit for your needs.

Book a session

Finding a safe space to explore your thoughts and emotions is key to the success of any therapy journey. With my individual counseling sessions, we'll create a therapeutic relationship that is based on trust and respect, giving you the freedom to openly express yourself. During your 50-minute session, we'll work together to help you identify any challenges you may be facing, and develop strategies to overcome them.

Individual Extended Session $180  (75 min)

Book a session

Life can be busy and overwhelming, and we often need more time, with less stops and starts in our lives.  My extended 75-minute sessions provides the extra time and space needed to dive into your concerns and work towards overcoming them. With guidance and support, we'll develop a personalized plan to help you navigate your personal challenges. 

Guest House Payments and Policy
 

The prices listed are graduate counsellor rates (Graduate Counsellors have completed their master's degree requirements and are awaiting registration).  Once registered, rates will increase, however current clients will remain at their rate for the duration of their counselling time at Guest House. 

 

You may be eligible for reimbursement through your insurance provider. Please contact your insurance company to confirm that Registered Clinical Counselling is covered.

Clients will be able to pay for session by e-transfer. 

Receipts are emailed after each session, however until RCC is granted you will not be able to submit your receipt for insurance/benefits purposes.

Once RCC under the BCACC is issued to me you will be able to submit your receipts.   Clients will remain at the lower cost for their duration of counselling services.  New clients in Jan 2024 will have new prices, but my goal is always to offer counselling prices that are accessible for folks.   

Cancellation

If you must cancel/reschedule an appointment, please provide me with 24 hour advanced notice, otherwise the full rate will still apply.

Insurance

Many major insurance providers cover Registered Clinical Counselling.  In early 2024 I will provide an invoice after payment which you can submit for re-imbursement. However, please consult with your insurance provider or human resources department to confirm whether or not your benefits plan covers counselling/psychotherapy provided by Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC) registered with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC).

 

 I am currently unable to direct bill any third party, including ICBC or CVAP.

I do have some spaces for clients needing a low-cost, please reach out to me by email.
