My Fees

My fee for standard psychological services is $200.00 per hour which is below the rate guideline published by the BC Psychological Association. Send me an email for fees regarding forensic and psycho-legal assessments.

The Medical Services Plan of BC does not cover psychological services. However, the following funding sources may be available :


Disability Insurance: Psychological treatment may be covered by your insurance company. Contact your insurance provider for information and pre-approval.

Income Tax Deduction: Psychologists' fees may be claimed as a medical expense and income tax deduction. Consult with a tax preparation expert for details and conditions.

Extended Health Benefits: If your health plan has extended benefits it may reimburse services from a Registered Psychologist. Contact your insurance company to find the amount of your annual coverage. Some insurance companies may require a referral from your family practitioner.

Crime Victim Assistance Program: The Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP) may provide financial assistance to victims of crimes and their immediate family members. Applications for assistance should be made within one year from the date the crime took place. Contact CVAP for more information.

RCMP Health Care Entitlements and Benefits Program: The RCMP's Supplemental Health Care benefits may allow coverage for personal or group counseling by an approved psychologist. More information can be found here.

Veterans Affairs Canada: I am a registered mental health provider with VAC. Veterans, Canadian Forces members, and family members of those living with mental health conditions may have coverage through the VAC Treatment Benefits program. See the VAC Mental Health and Wellness page for additional information.

Emergency Financial Assistance for Canadians Victimized Abroad: Canadians who were the victim of a violent crime in a foreign country may be eligible for financial assistance through the Victims Fund. This funding may help cover medical expenses when the victim has no other source of financial assistance. You can find information on how to apply for funding here.
