Payment is made before your session with debit/credit card, cash, or e-transfer (e-transfers must be received one business day before the session).
Extended sessions can be booked if this is your preference, and are a lower price than if the session goes overtime.
My services are covered by many insurance companies as well as some Employment Assistance Programs (EAPs); however, every plan is different. The best way to ensure your insurance plan/EAP covers my services is to check with your insurance provider/EAP manager to see if Registered Counselling Therapists (RCTs) are covered. It’s also useful to ask how much is paid per session and what the amount cap is.
In most cases with using insurance or EAPs, clients pay the counselling fee first and then seek reimbursement with the receipt I provide.
I am also on the service provider list for the Workmen’s Compensation Board (WCB). With these claims, once I have checked with your case manager and have approval, WCB will pay for counselling sessions.
All fees that are not reimbursed by insurance or other health coverage can be deducted as a medical expense on your tax return.
When you arrive for your appointment at 189 Dykeland Street, you’ll see a large, one-level building painted grey with yellow trim. Once in the main door of that building, if you look to the right, you’ll see a set of French doors with a sign above them noting the name of the clinic where I practice, Wolfville Integrated Health Care. Just go through the French doors and check in with the reception window on your left–you’ll see my practice’s name on the sign above the window. If there is no one at the window, please take a seat and someone will be with you shortly.
For your first session, please arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointment time to fill out some forms. By getting this paperwork out of the way in advance, we can save our session time for more focused therapy work.
