Affordable Service Rates and Payment Methods

In-person therapy sessions are normally conducted at my office located in Didsbury, Alberta. Other location arrangements can sometimes be made if that's not convenient.

Online sessions can be held wherever you have a reasonable assurance of privacy - your home, office - whatever is easiest for you. Connection is simple and convenient, and online counselling is rapidly becoming a popular option. All you need is Internet access, a camera, a microphone and speakers. For couples counselling, make sure the camera can see you both and that you can hear and be heard well.

Therapy sessions are one hour long. Payment for in-person or online is due following each session.

Individual sessions are $105.00.

Couples sessions are $140.00.

Note: Covid-19 represents another extraordinary moment in our journey together as human beings, and a lot of people are feeling considerable stress and anxiety. While counselling can certainly be very beneficial at such times, I recognize that many of us are now financially challenged as well. So, Core Essence Counselling has been offering counselling services on a "pay whatever you can" basis. Please feel most welcome to contact me at your convenience to talk about this.
