Most health care plans have a “Psychology Services” category, which allows for the reimbursement of some or all of your psychotherapy sessions.
The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta determines the Recommended Fee Schedule for Registered Psychologists in Alberta. Currently, the recommended fee for Individual Therapy or Couples/Family Therapy is $200 for a 50-minute session.
Equinox Therapeutic’s standard rates range from $180 – $200 per 50-minute session.
Sliding Scale Fees
Standard sliding scale rates start at $95/hr, and are available based on discussion of household income of the paying party and availability of insurance benefits.
Additionally, Equinox Therapeutic always has at least one Mental Health Therapist who offers “pay-what-you-can” rates when need is demonstrated.
Equine-assisted psychotherapy sessions cost an additional $35.00 per session, excepting in pro bono or non-profit work in which this fee is waived.
A minimum of 24 hours notice is required to cancel an appointment. As the appointment is reserved exclusively for you, in the event that notice is not given, the established hourly fee will be charged. Certain exceptions will be made in the event of emergency cancellations due to unforeseen circumstances.
