Practicum Student Therapist fees will be non-reimbursable by Extended Health Care Benefit Plans.
As a commitment to our community, Level Up offers Master’s level practicum students who are able to provide a sliding fee scale of $50 for each 50 minute session. This rate is lower than the average $80 rate that most other clinics offer.
Practicum students often have diverse experience and areas of specialty and are all supervised by a senior registered psychologist at Level Up. Each individual therapist may have a focus or area of interest but we can treat individuals who are experiencing a range of issues.
Services and Supported Concerns
I am so excited to embark on my counselling journey at Level Up! I am a current graduate student of Yorkville University in the Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology program. I am a registered student member with CCPA (Canadian Counselling Psychotherapy Association). Through this program, I have developed many skills to work with individuals that are dealing with a variety of mental health issues. Furthermore, I have over 7 years of experience working with children as an elementary school teacher in Edmonton in various schools. As a teacher, I have experience with a variety of mental health issues that children may go through. I have been volunteering as a crisis line operator for over a year at the Sexual Assault Center of Edmonton. I have a firm understanding of the patience, empathy, and compassion individuals want when they attend counselling. As I continue on my journey, I want to work with a variety of individuals, ranging from children to adults. I believe that in counselling, individuals are the experts of their own experiences and I am simply a fellow traveler on that journey.
