Our Fees And Rates
Registered Psychologists & Registered Clinical Social Workers
Psychological fees are set in accordance with the recommended fee schedule of the Psychologist's Association of Alberta and are based on a 50-minute session. Each counselling session is $220; however, clients may be eligible for a sliding fee scale depending on their coverage and financial position. Please check with your employer or healthcare provider regarding coverage of psychological services, as fees may be fully or partially covered. Note: A referral from a medical doctor is not required to begin counselling services, and there is no charge for the initial 15-minute phone consultation.
Clients with Treaty Status or have been impacted by the Residential School System. First Nations Inuits Health Branch (NIHB) and the Indian Residential School support program cover 20 sessions. Clients must go through their insurance first before accessing FNIHB. This is not our policy but NIHB requirements. Our psychologists fall under the guidelines of (NIHB) and can help provide counselling at no cost to the client. Clients who have suffered from the impacts of Residential Schools can also access coverage for mental health services.
