Policies & Rates
COVID-19 precautions: While I typically see clients in-person, I am currently offering online therapy services only as a way to continue meeting your goals while minimizing risk.
Rate: I typically charge $250 for a 45 minute session for clients.
Reduced Fee Appointments: I offer some lower fee appointment slots during the day. At this time, reduced fee slots are full.
Insurance: I am not on any insurance panels, which means you would pay me directly for services. Some insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits, and I provide documentation that you can submit to get reimbursement from your insurance company. Please call your insurance provider to see if they offer out-of-network benefits that would reimburse you for using my services.
Cancellation policy: An appointment time is set aside specifically for you and as a result, I require a 48 hour notice for cancelling or rescheduling counseling sessions. You will be responsible for the full fee for late cancellations or missed appointments.
Payment: I accept cash, check, and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, Diner‘s Club, and JCB). These cards can include Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA).
