Dr. Sandra Young, Psychological Services
Adult Treatment and Assessment
I continue to offer the majority of sessions by video or telephone. I provide in-person sessions for those whom we decide it is necessary.
IF YOU ARE ON MY WAITLIST or LOOKING FOR A PSYCHOLOGIST, you may find you can access services more quickly by contacting another psychologist. Additionally, BC is offering enhanced virtual mental health supports.
I am a registered psychologist practicing in Langley, BC. I completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees at UBC and my PhD at UCalgary. My training is in evidence-based treatments.
I use a collaborative approach, to best tailor treatment to match your needs.
Psychological assessment and treatment for adults dealing with symptoms of:
-Anxiety and related disorders
-Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
-Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
-Issues related to chronic pain and health
What can I expect?
What should I do first? Phone or email me. We’ll arrange a time to speak briefly by phone to make sure I offer services that match your needs.
Waitlist? I typically have a two to four month waitlist but, unfortunately, due to the length of the wait, my waitlist is temporarily closed.
How long are sessions? Initial intake sessions are 80-minutes, at which time I make treatment recommendations. Treatment sessions typically last 50-minutes. This can vary based on your symptoms and circumstances. If longer sessions are recommended, they are billed at the hourly rate.
How many sessions? The number of sessions and speed of recovery varies by individual. It is greatly affected by what we are working on, the severity of your symptoms, and how much work you are able to do between sessions. We take your budget into account as well. Most therapies involve a minimum of eight to ten sessions. Sessions are usually once per week.
How much does treatment cost? I charge $225 for each 50-minute treatment session and $337.50 for each 80-minute intake session. Psychologists are not covered by BC Medical Services Plan. You may have coverage through an extended health plan.
What happens in treatment? What we do in our sessions varies by person. You should expect that treatment can bring up uncomfortable feelings and isn’t always easy. We also figure out actions you can experiment with between sessions.
Wondering if my services will match your needs? Contact me to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation.
At this time, to reduce in person contact, THE MAJORITY OF SESSIONS ARE OFFERED VIA PHONE OR ENCRYPTED VIDEOCONFERENCING unless we determine in person treatment is of significantly greater benefit for you.
Please Note: At this time my WAITLIST is TEMPORARILY CLOSED due to the length of the wait. When my waitlist opens again, those interested would contact me to set up a free 15-minute phone consultation and screening.
