All students deserve a safe space where they can prioritize their mental health.
I was a university student for 10 years and I've worked directly with students for over 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. 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, weekday and weekend hours plus 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.
*Note: to access the student rate, you must be a post-secondary student and select the student rate appointment type from the booking page or let me know prior to your appointment that you wish to access the student rate.
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.
