Policies and Fees

Sessions

Each session is typically 45-60 minutes long.

The number of sessions for each client varies depending on the number and type of challenges you would like to work on. It is important to select a consistent day and time each week when you are available to meet to attain the greatest therapeutic benefit.

Payment and Cancellation Policies

Payment is due at the end of each session. You may pay with cash, check, or credit card.

48 hours notice for cancellation is required.  Notice given with less than 48 hours will be billed for.  In addition, please note that video or phone sessions may be substituted for in-person sessions if the client is not able to be physically present, but does not wish to cancel a session.

Fees

$150 per session for individual therapy

$200 per session for couples therapy

$75 student discount
I am currently an out-of-network provider. In most cases, psychotherapy is at least partially reimbursable by your insurance company. I can provide you with a receipt for out-of-network reimbursement as needed.
If you need psychotherapy and feel that your income may make it difficult to afford the full fee, please ask about the availability of reduced fee appointments during your initial phone consultation.

Out-of-Network Benefits

Since I am an out-of-network provider, many clients choose to use their out-of-network benefits to help pay for therapy. Your insurance company may partially or fully cover the cost of services. Most insurers reimburse 60-80 % of the fee. Some out-of-network insurers include GHI, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, Empire Blue Cross. Please check your coverage. If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call.
If you choose to use your out-of-network benefits, you will be responsible for payment at the time of your session. Upon request, you will be provided with a receipt of services at the end of each month that you can submit to your insurance company directly for reimbursement.
It is recommended that you call your insurance provider to verify out-of-network coverage for outpatient mental (behavioral) health services. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:

  • Do I have out-of-network mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible and has it been met?
  • How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
  • How much will I be reimbursed for out of network providers?
  • What is the required documentation and to what address do I submit claims to?
