Dr. Agatha Murray
My current fee is $200 per counselling session (GST does not apply). As of August 1, 2022, the fee will be $210 per session. Each session is a standard "therapy hour" which is 50 minutes of direct contact and 10 minutes of administrative work.
Payment can be made by e-transfer (preferred), or cheque or cash for in-person appointments. Please note, credit or debit cards are not accepted. I also offer direct billing to Alberta Blue Cross and the Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan. For other insurance plans, you can submit your receipt directly to them for reimbursement. Plans vary in their coverage for psychology services, so please check with your plan administrator if you have questions regarding your coverage.
Cancellation and missed appointment policy: because each counselling appointment represents a full hour reserved for that individual client and cannot be filled by "walk-in" clients like in some other settings, cancellations must be made at least 48 hours in advance of the appointment. Otherwise, a $100 fee is charged (or waived in emergency situations only). This fee also applies to missed ("no-show") appointments. Be aware that insurance plans do not usually cover these fees.
