Payment and Fees

What are your fees?

45-minute individual therapy session: $195

60-minute individual therapy session: $260**

70-minute couples counseling session: $295

90-minute discernment counseling session: $390

Payment is due at the time of service, and I accept cash, checks, and credit cards.

I offer sliding scale fees to a limited number of clients who can’t afford my normal fees.

**Note: As part of couples counseling, after the initial couples session I meet with each partner for an individual 60-minute session.

Do you accept insurance?

I don’t accept insurance directly. You may be able to obtain “out-of-network” reimbursement from your health insurance provider. Check your provider’s policies by asking them these questions:

  • Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
  • What is my deductible and has it been met?
  • What is the out-of-network coverage amount per individual 45-minute therapy session (CPT 90834)? Per individual 60-minute therapy session (CPT 90837)? Per family therapy session (CPT 90847)?
  • How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
  • What paperwork do you require?

I can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance provider.
