All students deserve a safe space where they can prioritize their mental health.
I was a university student for 10 years and have worked directly with students for nearly 5 years. I know students go through a lot. Pursuing higher education requires immense dedication and vulnerability, and students often experience a lot of pressure (from others and themselves). It can be helpful to have a space to go that is reserved just for you, to focus on you. A space where you can process your experiences, get support, and move forward.
When I started my practice, I knew I wanted to offer accessible services to students by breaking some of the major barriers they face in seeking mental health support: money, time, and stigma/fear. I offer special student rates, Saturday hours and online sessions, and a non-judgmental space for all. You are free to use your session time to talk, set and work toward goals, or simply as a place to breathe and make some art!
At Yellowtree Therapy Services, you can access affordable mental health services from a Registered Provisional Psychologist and Certified Art Therapist --- me (Evangeline)! The current rate for students is $125 per 1-hour session (in-person or online). See the Booking page for availability.
Check with your school's Student Union/Association to find out about student health insurance and make the most of your coverage. Direct billing to Alberta Blue Cross is available. If you have insurance through a different provider, you will need to pay the cost of your session up front and submit the claim directly to your provider for reimbursement.
