GET TO KNOW ME

Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to become a teacher and eventually pursue a Masters degree in Psychology. As a registered psychologist in the Grande Prairie area, I am committed to the well-being of all my patients and go above and beyond to cater to their needs.


I have been practicing in the area of education and school psychology since 2008. I focus on developing a clear understanding of the learning needs of children and creating program plans to help teachers meet those needs within the classroom.

FEES

Fees for Psychoeducational Assessments are based on the Psychologist Association of Alberta Recommended Fee Schedule  www.psychologistsassociation.ab.ca/site/recommended_fee_schedule ​


The fee for assessment services are based on the number of hours and tools required to complete an assessment.


​Each assessment will be completed based on the individual child's needs; therefore there is no set cost.
The exact cost of a comprehensive psychoeducational assessment will depend on the referral question(s), test measures administered to answer the referral question(s), how far the examinee progresses in each sub-test, and the ability of the examinee to work efficiently. However, the total cost for all psychoeducational assessments will fall in the range of $1500 and $2000 and will not exceed this range.

Fees for counselling with Amanda are based on a student rate of $80/hr.
