Our general rate is $ 130.00 per 50-60 minute session. An intake, the first session, is 165.00. These rates include all areas of specialization and couples therapy.
Payment is due at the beginning of each session by cash, check, HSA, Flex Savings, credit card or Pay-pal.
We are a fee for service practice. We do not bill insurance. Insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis on your long term record in order for you to be reimbursed. Since we are private pay, your diagnosis and treatment remain with us and completely confidential. It is not released unless you choose to submit your sessions to your insurance for reimbursement.
Things to consider when contacting your insurance company: ask them what is your deductible, co-pay fees, and if there are a limited amount of sessions that they will cover. Do they cover couples counseling? These are good questions to ask them before starting your sessions to determine your overall cost. Many insurance companies only cover a limited amount of sessions, or often don't cover couples counseling. We provide a lower rates for specialized services, so people can afford to be seen without the added stress. We have also found that many insurance companies reimburse expenses for our services, so even though we personally don't bill insurance your insurance may fully reimburse you. Ask your insurance company if they will reimburse out of pocket expenses from a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. We are also certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Certified in Trauma with EMDR training, advanced trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and trained in Air Network Therapy. We do not bill insurance for payment, however you may be able to use your out-of-network benefits, HSA/FSA (Health Savings Account/Flexible Spending Account) to offset your costs. If you have any additional concerns or questions please feel free to contact us and we'd be happy to assist you.
Some people choose to preserve their privacy by opting to pay for therapy outside of insurance. Billing insurance requires a mental health diagnosis that some people would rather not have as part of their permanent health record. Certain professions are particular about mental health services being on one's record. If this could be a potential concern, paying for therapy out of pocket may be the best option.
All cancellations require 24 hour advanced notice. A $100.00 non-refundable fee will be assessed for cancellations less than 24 hours, and if you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment the full payment (or after hour/weekend rate) will be charged to your account.
