Working out of multiple spaces to bring services to a wider range of people also means different overhead costs based on location. In light of this, you will notice that rates in Vancouver differ slightly from rates in White Rock. I thank you for your understanding and am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding these rates.

Tele-therapy is the delivery of counselling services using interactive audio and visual electronic systems, when you (the client) and Christen (the counsellor) are not in the same physical location. Tele-therapy is a great option that can enable you to be seen by Christen when you are not able to leave your home due to medical illness, mobility issues, or other unavoidable circumstance.
Telet-herapy can be done by video-conferencing or telephone, so chat with Christen about what to expect and to see if this is a good option for you.

Packages & Specials
|New Client Introductory Packages |
I understand that when getting started with counselling you can face a lot of barriers to accessing therapy. Its important to me that counselling be as accessible as possible, and that’s why I offer 20% off of counselling packages of 10-20 visits for first time clients regardless of treatment type. That means for a package of 10, your last two visits are free, and for packages of 20 your last 4 visits are free! *First Time Clients Only*
| EMDR & Neurofeedback Packages|
Depending on our concerns, treatment can sometimes take time. That is why I offer package rates for subsequent EMDR and LENS sessions at 20% off for every 10 or 20 sessions. That means in a package of 10 your last 2 sessions are free, and in a package of 20 your last 4 are free.
*Payment plans are available*
|Student & First-Responder Special Rates|
Providence is pleased to offer a special discounted rate for Students in Post Secondary & First-Responders, including:
Active Military and Veterans
**All session fees are due in full at the end of the first visit unless an alternative payment plan is worked out between you and Christen in a written payment agreement. Package rates can be paid in full at the end of your first session of therapy, or at the end of each session at an agreed on payment plan rate. If finances are a barrier, please contact Christen directly as she offers payment plans and sliding scale at her discretion. Packages may be shared with immediate family. Unused sessions in a package will not be reimbursed but may be transferred**
