Extended Health Benefits
Services may be covered in full or part by you Extended Health Benefits. In order to determine if you have coverage to see me, you can contact your insurance provider and ask the following questions:
  • Do I have coverage for Psychotherapy or Counselling services?
  • Does it cover a Therapist with a MSW, RSW – Masters of Social Work & Registered Social Worker?
  • How much coverage is available per year?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • What is the year for coverage i.e. calendar year, fiscal year etc.?
  • Is a doctor's referral required?
If coverage is available, you will make payment for the service and I will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company.

EAP - Employee Assistance Plans

You may have an Employee Assistance Plan through your workplace.  In order to access your EAP, you must see a therapist on the EAP Provider List. I am no longer doing any EAP work, so I am not on the provider lists. If you would like to see me, you may wish to call your Human Resources Department to ask if they would allow you to see a therapist outside of the EAP Provider List. Some clients have been able to receive limited coverage by making that request.

First Nations and Inuit Health
If you have a Certificate of Indian status (Band Card), you may be eligible to have therapy covered through Health Canada. The process involves attending for an initial assessment session with me, following which I submit a Treatment Plan to Health Canada. If approved, you are able to attend for the number of sessions that have been approved by Health Canada (usually 15 sessions). The sessions must be used within a period of six months.
Blue Cross
I am a Registered Provider with Blue Cross and provide services to Veterans and their families. The therapy must be authorized by Blue Cross in advance of therapy beginning with me.
Cancellation Policy
If you need to cancel or change an appointment time, two business days notice is required in order to avoid being charged for your session.
