At the Grief & Trauma Healing Centre, we offer flexible rates to suit your unique therapeutic needs and goals.
Your investment to work with a Registered Psychologist is $180.00 per hour for individual therapy and $190.00 per hour for couple and family therapy. This is below the Recommended Fee Schedule set by the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta, which recommends $200.00 per hour for the above services.
A Sliding Scale program is available for those who do not have insurance coverage, extended healthcare coverage, or an employee health benefit plan.
We would be delighted to discuss your investment options during a telephone consultation, for our counselling services, Grief Recovery® programs, and Edmonton grief support groups.
Registered Psychologist services may be covered in full or in part by your insurance company, employee health benefit plan, or extended health care coverage (ie. Alberta Blue Cross, Manulife Financial, Sun Life Financial, Green Shield, Great West Life). We offer direct billing for Alberta Blue Cross coverage.
Most plans have a “Psychology Services” category that allows for the reimbursement of some or all of your sessions. Additionally, fees for services may be tax deductible if claimed on your personal income tax.
Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
- Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
- What is my deductible and has it been met?
- How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
- What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
