I offer income-based sliding scale fees because I believe that money should never be a barrier to professional services. I also believe that the therapeutic relationship should be based on trust and honesty, and for this reason, I will not request proof of income. I trust that my clients will select the suggested fees themselves based on their household income.
Individuals: 60-minute per session.
Couples: 60-minutes per session.
Families: 60-75-minute per session.
Premarital Counseling: 5 sessions, 90-minutes each session.
* Extended sessions will be pro-rated.
I do not directly bill insurance companies for the following reasons:
Insurance requires that I assign you a mental health disorder that goes on your medical record. Not everyone wants this on their records.
Insurance can control how many sessions you get.
Insurance can control how long sessions are.
It takes an extended period of time to verify insurance and this delays services.
Some insurance plans offer out-of-network benefits. I am happy to provide statements for our sessions. Some plans will reimburse all or part of the rates. Please check with your insurance plan.
Cash, checks, credit cards or debit cards are accepted for payment.
