$175 for the initial 1-hour intake session. $150 per 50-minute individual session thereafter. Because of the complex nature of couples and family therapy, my rate is $175. I offer a discount for prepaid sessions. I also charge for phone consultations at a rate of $25 per15 minutes.
I offer psychotherapy services to a limited number of clients who are members of Blue Cross/Blue Shield. At this time, I cannot accept any more clients who wish to use their Blue Cross benefits. Many other insurance companies may reimburse for out-of-network providers.. Keep in mind that filing an insurance claim for mental health services carries a certain amount of risk because your information will entered into an insurance database and become part of your permanent record. Some clients choose not to use insurance to safeguard their privacy.
I do not process insurance paperwork but can provide an invoice that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Payment is due at the time of service.
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.
Cash, checks, PayPal and Venmo, are accepted for payment.
Generall speaking, email is a non-sercure method of communication. Please do not send emails that contain information that you consider confidential. I will respond only to emails related to schedule changes. If you send me an email with "therapy-related" issues, I will print it so we can discuss it during our next session. I do not acknowledge receipt of emails unless you are requesting an appointment or schedule change. If you are in a crisis, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
If you miss your scheduled therapy appointment, and you have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
