Will negotiate a lower fee in some circumstances. 

Payment method

  •  You can pay by credit card, cash, cheque or an email transfer within 24 hours after the session.

Insurance coverage

  • Counselling is not covered by Alberta Health Care; however, as a fully credentialed registered social worker, my services are reimbursable by all extended health care plans that provide coverage for counselling provided by a registered social worker.  The amount that you will be reimbursed depends upon the terms of your plan.  

Tax Deduction

  • Counselling is a tax deductible medical expense, according to the same rules that govern your ability to deduct other medical and dental expenses.

Health Spending Accounts
  • Services can be claimed under Health Spending Account guidelines. Health Spending Accounts commonly allow reimbursement of services of a "Medical Practitioner".  Registered Social Workers fall into this category. See the Canada Revenue Guidelines link below.
