Great therapy is an investment.
In general, the cost of therapy varies between professionals based on type of license, the amount of certifications completed, specialty areas and years of experience. Great therapy is an investment, but one whose benefits will repay you manyfold if you accomplish the goals and change you desire.
I value your time, my time, and the services I have to offer, and charge accordingly.
Individual Therapy (50 Minutes): $160
Couples or Family Therapy (75 minutes): $180
Individual Intake: (75 minutes): $180
Couples or Family Intake: (90 minutes) $225
Please Note: I do hold several low-fee/sliding scale spots for those in financial need.
If this applies, please indicate that you are requesting sliding scale when you fill out the contact request form.
Payment is expected at time of service. I accept cash, check, credit card and HSA/FSA account cards.
Each month, I can provide you with an itemized Superbill that shows the number of paid sessions you have attended. You can then submit this to your insurance company for full or partial reimbursement (depending on your benefits.)
In compliance with the newly enacted “No Surprises Act” (effective January 1, 2022) I am required to provide you with a Good Faith Estimate before we begin our work together. More explanation of this requirement can be found here, and a sample of the required information you will be provided can be found here.
I am a an Out-of-Network provider with fee-for-service practice.
This means I don't contract directly with insurance companies but do however, provide Superbills to clients who request them. By using insurance, even if you are paying me directly and submitting my Superbill to your insurance company, I am required to give a mental health diagnosis that goes in your medical record. The clinical diagnosis is based on your current symptoms even though you may have been previously diagnosed with another disorder. I will always discuss any diagnoses I assign to you. Your insurance company will know the times and dates of services provided. They may request further information to authorize additional services regarding treatment.
If you have Out-of-Network Provider benefits for mental health, you can submit the Superbill each month for reimbursement. You will get reimbursed after you have met your deductible. Sometimes reimbursement is on a percentage basis (50% or more) and sometimes a flat amount per session is covered (e.g. $60-100) depending on your policy.
(If you've come to therapy to explore "what is the meaning of life?" or "why am I here?" then your situation may not warrant a mental health diagnosis, and I will not assign you one solely to gain insurance reimbursement)
Want to find out more about reimbursement?
Here are the steps.
Call the number on your insurance card and ask these questions:
1. Do I have Out-of-Network benefits for routine behavioral health care?
2. If YES, what percentage am I reimbursed or is there an allowable amount per session?
3. Which behavioral health care services are covered?
4. What is the process and/or paperwork necessary for getting reimbursed?
What do I need to do now?
