Rates and Insurance

Rates

I offer an initial complimentary 15 minute phone consultation to answer any questions and to briefly explore why you are seeking therapy at this time. This helps both of us understand if we are a good fit for one another.

Initial Session

My fee is $150.00 per 45-50 minute session.  As first time couples in therapy, I respectfully request a two hour appointment. In my experience, an hour is not enough time to gain sufficient insight into what may be years of conflict. The two hour appointment allows us to take our time understanding the process while developing realistic therapy goals. Invest in therapy with someone who understands and empathizes with your pain.

Benefits of Private pay

One of the many benefits of being a private pay practice is that we are not bound by strict insurance guidelines. My goal is to provide quality care that best serves my clients. I have built a “referral based” practice. This means the people I have helped or colleagues I’ve worked with consistently recommend me to others. My practice does not rely on insurance panels but word-of-mouth and positive outcomes. My practice will always be a people based practice.

Insurance

All insurance companies are different and I advise clients check with their individual providers to fully understand the mental health out of network benefits. It might be helpful to also ask how many sessions do they cover, what is the deductible, and how much do they reimburse. I am happy to provide receipts so that you can follow up with your insurance company for reimbursement.

Payment

I accept cash, check, health service accounts/flex spending accounts, and all major credit cards as forms of payment.

Cancellation Policy

A 48 hour notice is required for a cancellation. This courtesy allows others to have access to earlier appointments as they become available. You will be charged the full fee of the scheduled session without proper cancellation.
