Rates and payment details

 

 

Fees

The standard rate of $125 per session + GST is charged, as set by the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors. The rate for family and couple counselling is $135 + GST. Payment is done at the beginning of each session.  Currently, cash, credit card, cheques or email money transfers are accepted. I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation prior to your first session. Please note that new reduced rates are now applying to those financially effected by the Covid-19 virus.  

 

Scheduling

To book an appointment, please contact me on my contact form available on this website. Alternatively, I can respond to your voicemail at (778) 654-6411, or via email at vitacounsellingservice@gmail.com. 

 

Contacting Me

Because I am often with clients, voicemail and email are often the best way to contact me. When you leave me a message, I do my best to contact you within one business day Monday-Friday 8:00am-5pm.

 

Benefits Coverage

Benefits Coverage varies by provider, so it is important to check which therapist credentials your insurance company requires. It is important to note that while your benefits coverage may not cover your therapy sessions,  you may be able to deduct session fees as a medical expense from your personal income taxes.
