& Counselling Fees
Therapy is an investment in yourself. You may want to explore options available to you, such as insurance and benefits coverage, to find a balance between resources and needs.
Effective from January 1, 2023, sessions for new clients will be billed at a rate of $220/50 minute session for services with a Registered Psychologist and $200/50 minute session for services with a Registered Provisional Psychologist.
To facilitate ease and accessibility of counselling, Sana Psychological is happy to offer direct billing with a number of insurance providers. The providers we can direct bill with vary by practitioner.
Please be advised that Manulife and SunLife do not currently accept direct billing for psychological services. If you have your benefits plan through either of these companies, you will need to submit for reimbursement yourself.
Some plans also do not accept direct billing for services with a Registered Provisional Psychologist or Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC). You will need to check with your plan to see what coverage is offered, if any, and you may need to pay out of pocket for services and submit for reimbursement from your insurance carrier.
A receipt is provided after each session for submission to your insurance plan for reimbursement if we are unable to do direct billing.
Did you know that therapy with a Registered Psychologist, Registered Provisional Psychologist or Canadian Certified Counsellor is an expense that you can claim on your tax return? Hang onto your receipts to include in your tax documents at the end of the taxation year if you are not using benefits.
The Psychologist’s Association of Alberta has a recommended fee schedule for services. The rates at Sana Psychological are consistent with this.
Appointments can be booked anytime through the online scheduling portal*.
*If you have questions or are a new client and the ‘New Client’ option is unavailable on the scheduling portal for the provider you are interested in, please e-mail email@example.com
Please take time to read through the website and some additional online information, including the clinician’s online Psychology Today profiles, and Sana Psychological’s Instagram and Facebook feeds to familiarize yourself with our approach and services. Returning client appointments are usually scheduling 2-4 weeks in advance and it is encouraged that multiple appointments get scheduled to ensure the frequency you are looking for.
Payment types accepted at this time are: Cash, e-transfer, credit card, and debit. Direct billing may be available depending on your insurance provider.
