Fees

Fees for therapy reflect the 2012-2017 recommended fee schedule set by the Psychologists' Association of Alberta. Individual/Family/Couples Session: $190.00 (based on a 50 minute session) Equine Assisted Session: $190.00 plus a surcharge of $30 to cover the costs of the facility and care of the horses. NOTE: We provide a sliding scale if the family qualifies as either  low-income OR has no insurance coverage. We provide direct billing for the following providers: Homewood Health, HumanaCare, Greenshield, Ensign Drilling, Family Support for Children with Disabilities Program (FSCD), Personal Support Network, Compsych, and WCB. Fees range from $100-$190 per hour. Negotiations can be arranged in extenuating circumstances. Payment is due at the time that services are rendered, and can be paid by personal Interac, cheque, cash, Visa, or Mastercard. Fees for psychological services may be claimed under tax deductible health care expenses on your income tax return. Additionally, many of our services are covered by private insurance. Please inquire with your health insurance provider regarding the details of your coverage. It is up to the client to check which mental health services and mental health professionals are specifically included in their company's agreement. Receipts are issued at the time of payment, and can be used to obtain a reimbursement from your insurance company for the services received. However, obtaining reimbursement from an insurance company is the responsibility of the client. When contacting your insurance company for details of your coverage, be sure to verify:

  • That psychological or counselling services are covered by your policy
  • If the insurer pays a set amount per visit, a portion of the fee per visit, or a total amount independent of sessions
  • If only a certain amount of time is allotted for each visit
  • Who is covered
  • If you need a physician’s referral
  • What the procedure is for reimbursement (i.e., direct bill or client pays and submits receipts)
Please note that a full session fee will be applied if an appointment is missed or cancelled without notifying us 24 hours in advance.
