Dr. Sandra Young, Psychological Services
Adult Treatment and Assessment
Nov 1, 2020: I continue to offer the majority of sessions via video or telephone. I provide in -person sessions for those whom we decide it is of greater benefit.
IF YOU ARE ON MY WAITLIST or LOOKING FOR A PSYCHOLOGIST, you may find you can access services more quickly by contacting another psychologist. Check HERE
BC is offering ENHANCED VIRTUAL MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES. For more information check HERE.
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 do 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.
How long are sessions? Initial intake sessions last 80-minutes, at which time I make treatment recommendations. Treatment sessions typically last 50-minutes. This can vary depending on your symptoms and circumstances. If longer sessions are recommended, they are billed at an hourly rate.
How many sessions? The number of sessions and speed of recovery varies by person. It is greatly affected by what we are working on, the severity of your symptoms, your budget, and how much work you are able to do between sessions. Most therapies involve a minimum of eight to ten sessions. Sessions are usually once per week.
How much does treatment cost? I charge $200 for each 50-minute treatment session and $300 for each 80-minute intake session. Psychologists are not covered by BC Medical Services Plan. If you have an extended health plan, I may be able to bill them directly.
What happens during treatment? What we do during sessions varies by person, but you should know that treatment often brings 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.
Nov 1, 2020: To reduce in person contact at this time, THE MAJORITY OF SESSIONS WILL BE OFFERED VIA PHONE OR ENCRYPTED VIDEOCONFERENCING unless we determine in person treatment is of greater benefit for you.
Please Note: I currently have a two to four month waitlist.
