My fees are 200.00/50-minute in-person appointment (phone and FaceTime appointments are available for those living out of town). These fees are in line with the 2018 approved recommended fees for Registered Psychologists in Alberta as set by the Psychologists Association of Alberta (PAA).

Check with your health insurance plan about coverage of psychological services.

As such, there are usually wait times for those services.
If you don’t have an EAP program, the EAP program Shepell·fgi offers a free EAP APP, providing access to expert information and interactive tools. Please visit:
