$150 per hour for in-person sessions including EMDR
$135 per hour for phone and secure video sessions
I accept e-transfer, and check payments prior to each session for all phone or in-person session. Major credit cards are accepted if preferred for secure video sessions through the secure website.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 48 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
Residential School Health Benefit
If you or your family member (biological, marriage, extended) have been a Residential School, you may be eligible for coverage with Health Canada’s IRS RIHB program. Travel costs from Fort Resolution to Hay River may be covered as well. To check eligibility, please contact Ally to start a brief verification process via phone at 780-886-2929 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employee Assistance Program
If Employee Assistance Services (EAS) is your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) service provider through your employer please call 1-800-268-7708 or 1-800-567-5803 (for persons with a hearing impairment) to access the program. Ally is an EAS provider and can meet with EAS clients via phone or in-person.
Please contact your insurance provider directly to see if counselling services with Ally will be covered (some providers cover, others don’t). Ally Cannon has a Master of Counselling Degree (MC) and is a certified member with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association: CCC ID #13981.
Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
• Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
• Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
• Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
• Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
