New Earth currently offers individual counselling for youth (16+) and adults. Counselling services at New Earth are authentic, empowering and holistic. It is of the absolute importance to New Earth that we work with you, where you're at, to find deep healing. You have the innate ability to move through difficult emotions, and our role is to hold space for you as you navigate this, and to remind you of the power you hold within yourself. It is truly an honor that you are considering working with New Earth.
Options typically include in-person, virtual and walk + talk. Walk + talk options are available from May to September.
50 minute individual session: $130
80 minute individual session: $195
Payment is accepted by e-transfer at the time of your appointment.
Therapy services should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. I reserve a number of sliding scale appointments a month. If the fee is a deterrent in you accessing mental health support, please contact to discuss.
Online therapy, sometimes referred to as telehealth or virtual therapy, has become a popular option for many individuals, especially within the last couple of years. It offers an opportunity to access support from the comfort of your own home! Sarah is a Registered Psychotherapist with the CCPCP, so therapy is available for anyone across Canada - you don't need to be in Saskatoon or even Saskatchewan if you want to work with her.
If you're interested in online therapy, all you need is a quiet, private space and internet access. Once you book, you are provided with a secure link to a HIPAA compliant platform in which the sessions take place.
This option is often chosen by individuals who are at a far distance but want to work with Sarah, who prefer to stay home, who are unable to leave home, and even those who just want to stay cozy in their pyjamas with a hot tea in the privacy of their own space!
Although therapy services with New Earth are not covered through Saskatchewan Health Services, some extended health plans may cover a portion of the cost of therapy services. As a psychotherapist with the CCPCP, your claims may be covered. Some insurance companies have pre-approved CCPCP claims for mental health services. These include Pacific Life, Sunlife, Manulife and Great West Life. *Please check with your insurance provider if reimbursement is a concern, or to double check if you qualify for benefits*
Clients are billed directly for services rendered and a detailed receipt of payment is provided to you to submit to your extended benefits provider for reimbursement. New Earth Therapy does not direct bill any insurance companies for extended coverage.
New Earth has a 24 hour cancellation policy. Once you book your counselling session, that time is reserved specifically for you. It is understandable that life happens, and things pop up last minute, but we do require a 24 hour cancellation notice. Cancellations made with less than 24 hours will be charged the full fee. Additionally, if you are more than 20 minutes late for your session, your time will be forfeited, and you will be expected the pay the full amount.
The information you provide during counselling is confidential with specific exceptions (this is covered during the informed consent). All notes and documents are secured in locked filing cabinets and electronic data (i.e., session notes) are encrypted and pass-word protected. All files are kept for a minimum of 7 years.
