    Rates & Insurance

    Rates

    • $250 for the first (intake and assessment) session
    • $200 per individual session
    • $250 per family therapy session

    Sessions last 45-50 minutes. Rates are pro-rated for shorter or longer sessions.

    Free Initial Consultation

    I offer a free initial consultation to see if we’re a good fit for therapy. This is a phone call or video call that lasts 15-20 minutes. I ask you to tell me a little about what’s bringing you or your family to therapy, and then I’ll discuss what I can offer and we’ll decide whether we want to go forward.

    Payment

    Payment is due on the day of your session. I accept all major credit snd debit cards as forms of payment. I request clients keep a card on file, which will be billed on the day of your session. If you want to pay by a different method, you can tell me at your session.

    If you have a medical payments (HSA or FSA) debit card, you can keep it on file with me so that your medical expenses account is billed directly.

    Insurance

    Although I do not bill insurance, you may be able to get insurance reimbursement. This depends on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan. Services may be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

    I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

    • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
    • Am I covered for seeing an out-of-network mental health provider?
    • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
    • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
    • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

    Good Faith Estimate for Out-of-Network Care

    You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost

    Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

    You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.

    You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate at least 1 business day before your next psychotherapy appointment or other service. I will deliver your Good Faith Estimate electronically using my Client Portal. You can also ask me, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

    If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

    Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

    For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 368-1019.

    Consistency Policy

    If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session. When you cancel a session, I request that you reschedule it within a 2-week period. This enables you to make consistent progress in therapy.

    Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
