It makes sense that one of the first questions people ask is, “What is your fee?”
I accept Health Savings Account Cards, Major Credit or Debit Cards, Cash, or Check.
Individuals, Couples, and Family Fees
- $125 for 50-minute sessions
- $175 for 80-minute sessions
After Hours Sessions
Some clients request sessions outside of my regular therapy hours (after hours or on a Friday or weekend). I occasionally accommodate a limited number of these requests. Please note that I add a $50 per session fee to weekend or after-hours meetings.
While I offer some lower fee slots for those experiencing hardship or with reduced incomes, I hold these slots for current clients who experience life transitions during our work together. If my fee is a concern, please discuss it with me. If I am unable to accommodate your financial situation, I gladly provide you with referrals.
Lateness and Cancellations
Missed and canceled sessions pose some issues for both of us. First, the work of psychotherapy is sometimes challenging and when we hit a difficult place together, it can feel easier to avoid coming into treatment. I would prefer we speak about this intentionally rather than you cancel sessions.
Also, I hold your scheduled appointment time specifically for you and you alone. In addition, I see a limited number of clients so I can give you the focus and attention you deserve. It is extremely difficult for me to fill your last minute canceled session on a short notice. Therefore, I charge my fee for appointments canceled with less than 24-hours’ notice unless we can find another time that week that works for us both. If we find another time that works for us, during my normal workweek, I allow you to reschedule at no extra fee.
Health insurance offers huge benefits. I get it. Unfortunately, I do not take insurance. I take Health Savings Account Cards, Major Credit or Debit Cards, cash, or check. My portal can provide a Superbill which you can use to file for out-of-network reimbursement. I cannot guarantee your insurance plan will accept my Superbill, but there is a chance they will.
There are good reasons to not use your health insurance to pay for mental health services. Many plans only have limited or no coverage. Regardless, if you choose me as your therapist or not, I recommend you contact your employee benefit plan; they may cover services in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help figure out your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- What about couples counseling?
- Is there a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- How many sessions per calendar year may I have?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician?
