When can I see you?
Daytime appointments are available Thursdays and Fridays. Evening and weekend appointments are available only by special request and are charged at a higher hourly fee. I do not book appointments by email or text message - you will need to speak with me by phone in order to book.
How long are sessions?
The first session usually lasts 80 minutes and follow up sessions usually last 50 minutes. EMDR sessions are usually 80 minutes.
Virtual Sessions: If you live in Alberta I can see you by video counselling. I use a secure program called "Jane App" which is a Canadian based company that uses Canadian servers and complies with provincial and federal privacy legislation. If you live outside of Alberta I can only serve you if you travel to see me - both the therapist (me) and the client (you) need to be in Alberta at the time of the service.
What are your fees?
Payment can be made by cash, check or e-transfer. I do not have a debit machine. I use a sliding fee scale which ranges from: $140 per hour to $200 per hour. Sessions are billed to the closest 1/4 hour. Remember that a typical session is 90 min so the fee range for a session is between: $210 - $300. You can choose do do 1 hour sessions but you will find that it is more cost effective overall to have the 1.5 hour sessions (we will get more done in a shorter time if we work this way).
Evening and weekend sessions are billed at a higher rate ($170 to $225 an hour).
Can I use my insurance benefits?

What if I don't have insurance and can't afford those fees?
If you live in the Taber area, you are very lucky because there are excellent free counselling resources available. Consider the following programs:
