Rates & Insurance

Rates
$160 per 55-60 minute session

Note:  Sessions involving three or more people usually require additional time to be effective.  Typically three people require a minimum of 75 minutes or more, four people require 90 minutes or more, and so on.  

 

Insurance
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. If you want to submit to your insurance company, please let me know. I will require a few sessions to arrive at a diagnosis, at which time I can provide the appropriate information for you to enter on the insurance forms for reimbursement. I do not handle forms processing and require payment at time of service.

Please check your insurance coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do my insurance benefits include mental health coverage?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
  • Do my insurance benefits include "couple counseling" or "relationship counseling" and what diagnosis codes are payable?
  • How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Reduced Fee/Sliding Scale
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.  I believe that everyone should have access to the care they need, so please do not let fees get in the way of getting help. Let's have a conversation and see what we can do to make this a win/win for all of us.

Payment
Cash, check, PayPal, and major credit/debit cards (including FSA and HSA) are accepted for payment.

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show for your scheduled therapy appointment and have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Note that insurance providers will not pay for missed sessions.
