Rates for Individual & Couples Therapy

Fees & Policies


Initial Phone Consultation (20 minutes) - Free
Intake Session (75 minutes)  $150
50 minute session $130
Intensives (3-6 hours) $130 per 60 minutes.


I offer a free 20-minute consultation in person or over the phone so that you can determine if I am the right person for you.  The standard session time is 50 minutes with additional time prorated in 15 minute intervals.   The  first session is longer as it allows  enough time for me to gather important information and for you to have time to ask questions.   Extended sessions are not typically covered by insurance plans.  


Intensives can be a helpful option for those who travel from out of town,  have limited availability for meeting on a regular basis or prefer to work more in depth on a particular area or issue.

If you are late to a session you are still responsible for the total cost of the session and I will still need to end at the 50 minute mark in order to meet the needs of other clients.  Since your hour of therapy is reserved exclusively for you and is not available for other clients nor is it easily filled at the last minute, a 24 hour notice for rescheduling or canceling your appointment time is required.  If this requirement is not met, you will be charged up to the total cost of the session.


Insurance

 

I am currently  in-network with Blue Shield, Magellan, HMC Healthworks (UFCW) and Holman Group, although several of these contracts will be ending in 2019.   If you want to use insurance, please let me know and I can provide additional information. 


If you have an alternate insurance plan, your health insurance company or employee benefit plan may cover services in full or part.  Please check your coverage carefully by asking your insurance provider if they will pay for an out of network therapist.  I f so,  I am happy to provide you with a superbill to submit for reimbursement.  If you need assistance regarding insurance questions, please let me know. 


Payment


Cash, check and  credit cards are all accepted for payment.

I have a limited amount of sliding scale openings for those that are highly motivated and have financial limitations; please feel free to ask if this is your situation.
