Rates

Individual Adult Therapy: $130 per 55 minute session

Initial Intake Appointment $150 

* You may request a free complementary 25 minute meet & greet session to ensure we are a good fit.

Payment: Payment is due at the beginning of each session; unless otherwise negotiated. I accept all forms of payment.

Phone Calls: I do not charge for phone calls under 15 minutes. However, if that call should exceed 15 minutes with clients or collateral contacts (ie. school counselors, teachers, doctors, CASA and/or social worker, etc) a prorated fee will be charged. Please note that many insurance companies will not reimburse for phone contact.


Cancellations: Please provide 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or rescheduled an appointment. Late cancellations with less than 24 hour notice will be charged a $30 fee. 
No shows and cancellations with less than 2 hour notice are charged the full session rate.

 

Sliding Scale: As best I can, I try to reduce any financial barriers when it comes to receiving services. A reduction of fees on a sliding scale model is available, is determined on a case-by-case basis, and is subject to availability.

 

 

 


Insurance: I am In-Network with First Choice Health 

 

I provide a super-bill for clients to get reimbursed as an "out-of-network" provider. Please check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-network benefits. It is likely your insurance company will cover a portion of the cost.

 When speaking with your insurance provider, you may consider asking the following:


   *Do I need prior approval/referral from my primary care physician?
   *How many outpatient mental health sessions are covered per year?
   *What is my deductible and has is been met?
   *What is my reimbursement rate for an out-of-network provider?
   *Where can I find the form necessary to submit my own medical claim for reimbursement?
