Therapy involves a substantial investment in time, energy, and money. Choosing the right therapist for you will make the most of your investment in the least amount of time. To facilitate this process, I offer a free consultation session by video or phone. This will allow us to discuss your needs and to see if my style is a good fit for you.
After the consultation, my standard self-pay rate is $180 for the intake evaluation and $150 per therapy session. All sessions are scheduled for 45-minutes plus documentation time and the intake sessions are billed at a higher rate due to the extra time needed for that documentation. I request a credit card on file for any missed or late canceled appointments. Generally, this card is used for payment and billed automatically each session (HSA or FSA cards are accepted). If you want to pay with cash and check, please make arrangements to prepay for Telehealth sessions. I have a limited number of reduced-rate spots available. Please ask about availability at first contact if you want to be considered for a reduced rate.
Many insurance plans include out-of-network benefits that you may choose to utilize. I will be happy to provide a monthly Superbill for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. I will also provide monthly or year-end statements for accounting and taxes if desired.
