Cobb & Associates Inc. is pleased to offer online counselling sessions, also referred to as e-therapy, to residents of Alberta, Canada. Online counselling is an ideal solution for clients that have less access to face-to-face counselling services, or who wish to receive professional help and guidance from their own home or office.
Online counselling is conducted over the internet with a webcam and microphone attached to your computer so that you can see, hear and speak to your therapist on your computer monitor from the comfort of your home or office. In the event that you do not have a computer available, e-therapy can also be conducted by telephone. Benefits include more flexibility in scheduling, reduced travel time, and access to counselling services when mobility is limited, or from remote areas.

We offer direct billing to 10 major insurers in Alberta. Direct billing reduces your out-of-pocket expenses, and eliminates the hassle of submitting your receipts for reimbursement. Ask us to submit your claim for you at your next visit.
**Disclaimer: For most insurance companies, we are only able to direct bill for services rendered by our fully registered psychologists. Some of our associate clinicians are provisionally registered. Our experience has shown that most insurance companies do reimburse for the services of a provisionally registered psychologist, but you will need to submit your receipt for reimbursement on your own if the psychologist you are receiving services from is provisionally registered.
