Rates & Insurance

$180 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.  


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 require a few sessions to arrive at an appropriate diagnosis, at which time I can provide the required information for your insurance forms. 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 will the insurer cover if I attend counseling with a significant other?
  • 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.

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

Cancellation Policy
If you cancel or do not show for your scheduled therapy appointment without at least 48 hrs advance notification, you may be required to pay the full cost of the session. Life happens, so everyone gets one free pass regardless of the reason. Note that insurance providers will not pay for missed sessions.
