Fees & Insurance
A standard 50-minute session is $150. We recommend scheduling your first (intake) session for 80-minutes to allow adequate time to explore your goals in counseling. The fee for a 80-minute session is $180.
Your credit or debit card will be billed directly for each session. Payment is also accepted via cash or check instead and is due at the time of service. Because we hold an appointment for you, cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will be charged the full rate.
To provide the best care possible, we have made the decision not to accept insurance.
Insurance companies often restrict the type of work a counselor can do, the number of sessions, and the frequency of sessions, which may not be in your best interest.
Billing insurance also requires us to provide a diagnoses, which we do not take lightly. If we were to submit a diagnoses, it would become a part of your medical record and may have adverse effects on your ability to obtain health, life, or disability insurance, and could even be used against you in court or in future employment opportunities.
We want to do what is best for you, so we limit our services to private-pay clients. We can accept cash, check, or credit card. Being aware of the above information, if you would like to submit a request for “out-of-network” coverage to your insurance company, I can provide an invoice each month you can submit with your request.
