Rates and Insurance

Therapy is essential for anyone that is finding themselves “stuck” in their current patterns of behaviors.  From time to time we all need an unbiased voice and/or ear to reflect how we feel and normalize our thoughts.

There is really NO price you can place on GREAT therapy and I truly believe that I provide the top notch treatment  to every one of my clients.

However because anything in life that is valuable cost money I have provided my list of fees below 🙂

Fee Schedule:

90791 Individual diagnostic evaluation (intake)-$125

90834 Individual psychotherapy counseling session 45 minutes- $100

90837 Individual psychotherapy 60 minutes- $110

90846 Family psychotherapy intake 60-90 minutes-$140

90847 Family psychotherapy counseling session-60 minutes- $140

 *note: Fees are non-negotiable and are not offered on a sliding fee scale
**note:  Fees are subject to change at counselor’s discretion.
*Each session hour is 45- 50 minutes* **Intake sessions may take up to 90 minutes***

Making the Decision

The decision to begin therapy is an important one and I offer a free 10-minute consultation phone appointment to help you decide if working with me will meet your needs.

Payments

I accept payment for counseling at the beginning of each session by cash, check, or credit card. A fee of $35 will be charged for any returned (NSF) checks.  Payment by check is not available for first session payment.  Note: Due to the nature of my practice, court reports, depositions, and/or court appearances are not available. If these services become mandatory however, there will be a $350/hour charge.

Insurance

**UPDATE**  Now accepting some CAREFIRST PPO Plans!!!

I do not accept insurance from all insurance companies for  payment of counseling.  However, my counseling services may be covered in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan.  For most insurance companies I am an “out-of-network provider”. (i.e. Aetna ).  Upon request, I will provide you with a statement and/or claim form that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on matters related to insurance reimbursement.

Cancellation Policy
I require a 24-hour notice for cancellation or rescheduled appointments. It is important to your overall progress in therapy to maintain treatment compliance.
Cancellations with less than 24-hour notice and no-shows will be charged a $50 Cancellation Fee. Please note insurance companies will not reimburse for missed sessions. If you arrive late for your session, you will be given the time remaining in your hour, and will be charged the full rate.

*Note: Rates are subject to change at owners discretion
