Appointments & Fees
Appointments can be made directly, without the need for referral. Simply contact my office and schedule an appointment over the phone. Occasionally a benefits package requires a referral from a physician. A note or form is usually all that is necessary, and the appointment can be made directly.
My standard fees are consistent with those recommended by the British Columbia Psychological Association.
- Individual therapy – $170 per session (50 minute).
- Group therapy sliding scale – $30-50 per session (90 minute)
Insurance Coverage and Medical Expense Deduction
Psychologists are not covered by BC’s basic medical insurance. However many employers provide extended health benefits with some degree of coverage, for Registered Psychologists, ranging from one to several sessions.
A cancellation policy applies. If a session is cancelled with 24 hours notice, there is no charge for the session; cancellations with less than 24 hour notice will be billed at the regular fee.
Location, Bus Lines, Parking
The office is located centrally in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood, on the city’s west side, with easy bus access. Parking is available.
