Our office is located at#104, 1601 Dunmore Rd SE, Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada. I have been counselling in Medicine Hat since 1999.
Since 1999 I have had the privilege of working with numerous individuals in our community, in regards to issues around addictions, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, grief and loss, and sexual abuse.
Individuals often feel they should be able to handle stressors on their own. When they are unable to resolve these issues, find it difficult to know where to ask for the help. It is important that those needing assistance receive it in a timely, confidential, and convenient manner.
As this is a private practice the typical funding source through Alberta Health Care doesn’t provide for this type of service. As a result either private funding personally or employee benefit packages may include provisions for counselling. I have included a couple of examples of alternative funding:
|Most companies have provisions for counselling services with their supplemental health insurance (ie Great West Life), if the counsellor is a Registered Social Worker in Alberta. Arrangements often can be made for the insurance company to pay the service provider directly, or they will reimburse the employee.|
|Depending on the employers benefit packages qualification requirements the employee may be reimbursed for the costs. Each client needs to inquire with their insurer as to these specifics. Typically, the client pays for services and is reimbursed by submitting paid invoices to their plan. Arrangements with my office can be made to bill directly to the employee plan of the client.|
|Receipts kept by clients can be applied to medical costs on their income tax each year.|
|Motor vehicle accident victims are eligible for funding through their motor vehicle insurance companies, under their Section B Funding. After an accident/trauma individuals involved often find it difficult to return to their normal level of activity, sense of safety, and their prior quality of life. Research has shown increased success in improvement in quality of life, when counselling is provided for those involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident.|
Our office has flexible hours that allow clients to book appointment times during the day, in the evening, if required, to accommodate individual schedules. We are conveniently located at #104 1601 Dunmore Rd. SE, a ground level entrance between Nutter’s and Cypress Insurance.
Our purpose is to assist individuals in the functioning of their lives on a day to day basis with strategies and skills, to allow them to carry on independently and confidently. I often refer to myself as a “tour guide” – I encourage the exploration of the answers each individual has within themselves.
