Counselling and Psychotherapy Fees

Fees are in accordance with BCACC fee guidelines,  years of experience, and training. Fees are in the range of $120 - $130 per 50-minute session and are prorated for longer sessions.  

Fees are paid at the end of each session by e-transfer, cash, or credit card, or cheque and you will be emailed a detailed receipt that includes your therapist's registration information.

If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please provide at least 24 hours notice, as we charge the full session fee for missed, rescheduled, or canceled appointments with less than 24 hours notice. This policy is based on fairness to you, fairness to your therapist, and to other clients who may need that time.

Insurance Coverage:

Your therapist is either a Registered Clinical Counsellor,  Registered Social Worker or both of these.  Fees are covered by many extended health care plans. If you have insurance coverage, you may wish to read your particular plan's coverage.

Payment for sessions is made by you and we provide a detailed receipt with registration numbers that can be submitted to your insurer for reimbursement if your plan covers our services. 

Income Tax – Medical Expenses

Additionally, Mandy has the RSW designation and Registered Social Workers are authorized as “medical practitioners” under the Income Tax Act for the purpose of claiming medical expenses on income tax returns.

“Vulnerability is not weakness, and the uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure we face every day are not optional. Our only choice is a question of engagement. Our willingness to own and engage with our vulnerability determines the depth of our courage and the clarity of our purpose; the level to which we protect ourselves from being vulnerable is a measure of our fear and disconnection.”
