Standard sessions are 50 minutes in length
The standard rates for individual counseling sessions are $120 for each 50 minute session. The standard rates for couples/family counseling sessions are $130 for each 50 minute session.
Sliding Scale Rates
I believe that cost should never be a barrier to engaging in counseling. If you find that the standard rate will be financially unmanageable, a sliding scale rate may be used. The sliding scale rate is based on the your annual household income. Reported income is based on the honor system.
|Household Income||Individual Sessions
Couples and Family Sessions
|$150,000 & above||$120||$130|
|$149,000 - $100,000||$110||$120|
|$99,999 - $75,000||$100||$110|
|$74,999 - $40,000||$90||$100|
|$39,999 & below||$80||$90|
I am not an in-network provider on any insurance panels. However, there are benefits to paying out of pocket. First, if you pay out-of-pocket you will retain privacy from insurance companies, as they would otherwise have access to your complete record, including session content. Secondly, insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis to approve payment. These diagnoses become a part of your permanent medical record, should you use insurance. Finally, when you pay out-of-pocket there are no limits to the number of sessions in which you are allowed to participate.
Upon request, I am happy to provide you with an insurance superbill, which you can submit to your insurer for reimbursement using your out-of-network insurance agreement. Your insurance company still requires a mental health diagnosis in this scenario. However, the problems of your session content being released and session numbers being limited are eliminated.
Cash, check, PayPal, and all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) are accepted forms of payment.
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified the office at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay for the full cost of the session. Cancellation fees must be paid before additional services can be provided.
