Since I am an out-of-network provider, therapy sessions are still covered by insurance but at a different rate than with an in-network provider. It is worth knowing your out-of-network benefits as they are sometimes comparable to in-network benefits. Paying out of pocket allows you and your therapist to be in control of session frequency, length, and focus, as well as your diagnosis - all things that can be influenced or dictated by insurance companies when using an in-network provider. Most of my clients choose to have their insurance company reimburse them directly for their sessions. I can provide you all the information needed to send a claim to your insurance company to receive reimbursement according to your plan's benefits. If needed I can help you send in a claim form. My fees are:
Intakes (every client has an intake that is one hour): $150
Subsequent sessions for individuals and couples: $135 for a 45-50-minute session
Subsequent sessions for divorce consults, coparenting therapy, and Child Specialist work: $140 for a 45-50 minute session; $150 for a one-hour child interview
Sliding scale is based on fit and availability. Please feel free to inquire if needed.
There is a 24-hour cancellation policy for non-emergencies. This fee is the cost of the session, and will be waived if we are able to have a rescheduled appointment within the next seven days.
Clients typically choose to pay via credit card which is run automatically at the end of the day. If paying by check or cash, payment is due at the beginning of the session.
