Hours and rates

Hours

I offer a variety of appointment times to meet your needs, during the daytime and some early evenings. I also book a limited number of weekend appointments.

I have an office in Vancouver's downtown West End and also in Snug Cove on Bowen Island. Call 604-803-2600 to arrange a convenient time for your first appointment.

Rates

  • $110 per hour session for individuals,
  • $125 per hour session for couples.

GST is included in these rates.

Workplace health benefit programs

I provide receipts for third party fee payment. Although counselling fees are not covered under the BC Medical Services Plan, rethink services are recognized by many workplace health benefit plans (like those of Great West Life and Pacific Blue Cross). Generally, insurance companies will cover the cost of counselling provided by a Registered Clinical Counsellor. Consult with your workplace Human Resource department or insurance company about whether you are covered. If not, I can help you to have your health benefit plan amended to include coverage of Registered Clinical Counsellors' fees at no extra cost to the employer.

Payment terms

I require payment in full for the session on the day of the session, with the exception of those who choose to have a free 30-minute consultation prior to making a commitment to start counselling. A $50 fee will apply to missed or cancelled appointments with less than 24 hours notice.

ICBC and the Crime Victim Assistance Program

I am registered with ICBC and the BC Government's Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP). If you are eligible to receive support from either one for counselling then I handle billing for you.

Free 30 minute consultation

If you’re not sure about counselling, or about rethink, I offer a free 30-minute consultation. I don’t ask for any commitment: you just need to show up, ask questions, and determine whether you feel comfortable.

If you’d like to book a 30 minute session, call 604.803.2600.
