Investing in YOU
If you are ready to shift your life into more freedom, then there are steps to start taking. Change does not happen without action. The first step is finding a counselor that is a good match for you on your healing journey. Take the time to read through my site.

Are you Covered?
Extended Health Care Plans Coverage of Fees
Fees are not covered by BC Medical Services Plan but they are covered by some extended health plans. Most insurances will cover counsellors from a variety of professions, however some cover only registered social workers and some cover only psychologists.
For extended health insurance plans, you will be required to pay and then submit your receipt in order to be reimbursed by the insurance carrier. Please check with your employer or extended health provider to find out what your coverage includes.
If you are registered with ICBC, Mental Health or Family and Children Services you may be covered with your case workers approval. If approved, I may be able to bill directly to that service.
Questions to ask your extended medical provider:
- Do they cover Master Therapeutic Counsellors [MTC]?
- How much am I covered for in total and per session?
- Is there a deductible?
- Is the coverage per calendar year or another fiscal year?
Missed appointments represent a loss of opportunity for someone else to receive services. Please let me know as soon as possible if you will not be able to make your appointment.
If you cancel your appointment with at least 24 hours notice, there will be no charge. If you cancel with less than 24 hours notice, your full appointment fee will be charged. If you do not phone or email to cancel your session, I will assume that you are delayed and will wait for you throughout the booked session and the full fee will be charged.
“Personal development is a major time-saver. The better you become, the less time it takes you to achieve your goals.” — Brian Tracy
The first step of empowerment is choice and choosing
how you deal with trauma puts the control back with you.
