At the moment, I am a DMBA and PEHP provider. I also accept self pay. This means that I do not have a contract to provide care for health insurances. I am considered an out-of-network provider. However, if you would like to try to use your out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with a receipt, called a Superbill, which you can submit to your insurance company to try to receive reimbursement. You will need to meet your out-of-network deductible before the insurance company will reimburse you. Please know that in order to do this I am required by insurance companies to assign you a diagnosis code which becomes part of your permanent medical record. I recommend calling the number on the back of your insurance card to find out what your specific plan’s policy is for out of network mental health providers. After our session, I will provide you with a receipt and you can take that to your insurance provider for coverage.
In the future, I may accept insurance providers.
For Canadians, I will provide a receipt for services. Currently in Canada, counselors cannot directly bill insurance companies.
Please ask me any questions you may have about my out of network service.
I am willing to work with people who cannot afford the rate stated on a limited basis. I believe that counseling should be affordable and I reserve a portion of my sessions for affordable payment. Please ask me to make an arrangement for these sessions.
These sessions are limited.
I am working with Canadians at a rate that is fair based on the exchange rate. Please message me for fees.
I am licensed to work in both British Columbia, Canada and Utah.
I am hoping to share my expertise to people in both places.
For your comfort, during the Covid pandemic I will be offering the choice of in-person or online appointments.
I am a RCSW and LCSW licensed to provide care in British Columbia, and am offering online sessions to British Columbians.
The rate for individual therapy sessions is $125 to $140 per session. Sessions are a 50-minute time block. A 90-minute session is $180.
Sliding Fee Scale
I have a sliding fee scale. If you have a situation where you can not afford therapy, I reserve 25% of my sessions for people who can not afford traditional therapy rates. Please contact me and I will add you to a sliding scale wait list, discuss your current ability to pay, and negotiate something fair for you. I believe all people should have access to therapy and this is my way of contributing to this goal.
I accept Bishop's Remburisement for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and charge a rate of $80/session for Bishop-arranged sessions.
Some clients prefer to participate in therapy out in nature on a walk or hike. I am willing to meet clients to walk and talk. I am willing to do some nature therapy and will consider nature therapy on a case-by-case basis. The fee for nature walks is the same as a regular session - $125 for 50 minutes.
There is no charge for work that is 15 minutes or less. Completion of this work is dependent on my current schedule availability.
Requests that require more than 15 minutes are billed at $75 per half hour of work. Some individuals have chosen to ask for paperwork to be completed in the course of their counselling session (for example, a request for an urgent letter), which is generally an acceptable option if this works better for you and if there is sufficient additional time left in your session to address your concerns.
Note: I do NOT write letters for emotional support animals.
