Fees & Forms

Counselling

Services

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.

* Please Note Fee Changes Coming September 2019*

|Tele-Therapy|   

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

  • Paramedics

  • ER Professionals

  • Fire Fighters

  • Police

  • 911 Dispatch

**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**

Intake & Consent

Providence Therapy works primarily off a secure online platform for client intake and consent. I kindly ask that you come to your first visit with all your intake paperwork filled out to the best of your ability so that we can spend time focusing on you. Copies of these documents will be sent to you following booking to be filled out prior to your session, however if you would prefer to review or fill them out in hard copy, simple let me (Christen) know and I would be happy to send out hard copy forms for you to fill out ahead of time.

If you chose to print them, please keep your forms until we meet instead of emailing them to keep your confidentiality intact.

If you are booking a LENS Neurofeedback visit, a sensitivity questionnaire is also required in addition to initial intake and consent. To fill out the LENS sensitivity questionnaire, please click the button below and you will be directed the the Ochs Labs website where you will be able to securely created an account on the LENS server. Conducting your sensitivity questionnaire online will allow data to be sent right to my office so we can tailor your LENS neurofeedback session to your needs. Again, If you require a hard copy of this questionnaire, you can request that directly.

All information indicated on these forms is kept on a secure server or at a secured location where no one other than your therapist can access it. If you have any questions regarding the information on these forms, don’t hesitate to contact me.
