Rates & Insurance

Rates, Payments, Health Insurance

Payment  I accept cash or checks. Your payment or co-payment is expected on the day of your appointment. 


Health Insurance: Most counseling services are covered in full or in part by your health insurance plan. I am an in-network provider for major insurance companies and most local business insurance plans. Most health care plans require you to pay a co-pay between $15 - $60/session depending on your specific insurance plan.  Please call the membership services number on your health insurance card. Ask the following questions:


  • Do I have mental health or behavioral health insurance benefits?
  • Do I need a pre-authorization for counseling?
  • What is my deductible ? Has it been met?
  • How much is my co payment or co insurance?
  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?  

If your insurance plan does not pay for services, you are responsible to pay for counseling services you received.


Employee Assistance Plans: If you have and Employee Assistance Program, EAP, through your employer, a limited number counseling sessions may be covered at 100%. You will have to contact the EAP before your appointment to get a pre-authorization for services. 


Medicare or Medicaid: I do not accept Medicare or Medicaid plans due to reimbursement difficulties.   


Self Pay: $150 for the initial 55 minute assessment. $135 for subsequent 50 minute sessions.  Senior Citizens Self Pay Rate is $65 per session. Medicare will NOT reimburse this.


Reduced Fee:  Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. There must be a documented reason.


Cancellation Policy:  If you do not show up for your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified us at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay a $50 cancellation fee.
