Rates & Insurance

Rates
$110 - $150 per clinical hour (45-50-minute session)

Insurance
I accept most insurances; services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. ***Most insurance companies do not provide coverage for couple or family therapy (when entire family treatment is desired)

 

Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Reduced Fee
Reduced fees are available on a limited basis. I encourage you to discuss fees with me at any time.
 
Payment
Cash, check, Debit/Credit cards via Paypal

ADVANTAGE OF PRIVATE PAY
Reasons to pay privately or "Out of Pocket"

1) Private paying clients choose not to involve insurance companies in their mental  health care. 

2) Your therapy is not limited by the diagnosis; treatment plan or session limits set by your insurance company. Many insurance companies do not cover couples/relational or Family therapy.

3) To have therapy services covered under insurance, a mental health diagnosis must be made. This then becomes a part of your permanent health care record. This may lead to limitations such as denial for quality life insurance or   health insurance later on. Additionally, since a mental health diagnosis must be made to obtain reimbursement, the insurance company has to know certain information about you to be covered and your records are subject to be reviewed at their discretion

By paying privately or out of pocket, I can assure private pay clients of the highest degree of privacy, flexibility and control of their therapy record allowed by state law. My records then are exempt from insurance reporting and random compliance audits.  In addition, many insurance companies require a deductible to be met, so ultimately you may pay out of pocket. We will work collaboratively to decide how often to you should attend therapy and you decide what you want to focus on. Your therapy will not be impacted by the decision of an insurance company

Cancellation Policy
If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment,
and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you
will be required to pay a $50.00 "missed session" fee.

The only exception is an agreed emergency event.
