Our counsellors offer direct billing for NIHB, Victim Services, Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, and Veteran Affairs. At this time, we do not offer direct billing to other private insurance providers. We are happy to offer you a detailed receipt after each session. You can then submit it to your insurance for reimbursement.
We recommend checking with your insurance provider to clarify whether you have coverage for counselling and assessment services.
It is useful to clarify whether you are covered for counselling with registered psychologists, social workers, or Canadian certified counsellors (CCC). Some plans will only cover psychologists, while others cover additional professionals as well.
Let us know if you require an assessment cost estimate for your insurance or funding program. We will be glad to provide it.
Payment methods include cash, cheque, e-transfer, and credit cards.
Payment through direct billing is also available for the Ministry of Social Services, Jordan’s Principle, and some other funding providers.
Your counsellor will listen without judgment and work to create safety and collaboration in your therapeutic process. Additionally, your counsellor will
utilize evidence-based practices grounded in psychology, neuroscience, and education.
