Private Insurance or No Insurance
Fees are set according to recommendations by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, and effective July 1st 2010, the BC government requires that 12% HST be added to all fees.
Sessions: $ 100.00 + HST (12%) = $112 for a 55-minute session.
Cash, and personal checks accepted for payment.
(Sorry, credit card or debit transactions are NOT accepted at this time.)
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please check your coverage carefully.
If your plan does cover counselling or psychotherapy, then you will pay Calm Waters Counselling for the cost of your session. I will issue a receipt which you can then submit to your extended heath care provider for reimbursement.
Crime Victim Assistance Program
I am an approved provider of counselling services for the Crime Victim Assistance Program (CVAP). If you have been a victim or witness of a crime in BC, you may be eligible to receive free counselling sessions.
An official Claim Number with a statement that indicates the number of approved sessions must be provided before any counselling sessions will be booked.
You will be required to pay the full cost of the session if you do not show up for your scheduled appointment or you have not notified me to cancel at least 24 hours in advance.
