Rates and Insurance
$150/hourly (typically 60 minutes long)
$210 (90 minutes) first session, which is considered the Diagnostic Assessment
I also offer a discounted rate for those with financial need who are paying out of pocket. I am happy to discuss payment options with you so that your counseling needs can be addressed without financial burdens.
Payment is due at the time of our session. At this time, I accept all major credit cards as forms of payment.
I can also provide a courtesy Out-of-Network billing to your insurance, although currently, I cannot bill Tri-Care or Medicaid. Requirements vary from company to company on whether family counseling is covered as well as Telehealth appointments. Please refer to your insurance benefits for specific coverage or call the toll-free number on the back of your insurance card for more information.
If you are unable to attend a session, please cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged the full fee for our meeting.
Good Faith Estimate
Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment.
This new regulation is designed to provide transparency to patients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills. It allows patients to understand how much their health care will cost before they receive services.
There are a number of factors that make it challenging to provide an estimate on how long it will take for a client to complete therapeutic treatment, and much depends on the individual client and their goals in seeking therapy. Some clients are satisfied with a reduction in symptoms while others continue longer because it feels beneficial to do so. Others begin to schedule less frequently and may continue to come in for “tune ups” or when issues arise. Ultimately, as the client, it is your decision when to stop therapy.
When we first set up services, I will verbally provide you with a Good Faith Estimate (GFE). In addition, this estimate will be available to you in writing and you can access it through the Simple Practice portal. If you are a a current client, I will be providing you with a GFE as well.
The following examples are provided to give an idea of the financial expectations for a calendar year. The frequency and duration is dependent on your individual needs and goals. I have provided here my current session fees, projected for a 12 month period with differing levels of sessions scheduled:
Good Faith Estimate Details for Individual/Couples Clients
Diagnostic Evaluation (Intake Session) 90-minutes $210
Individual/Couples 60-minute session $150/hr
Weekly 60-minute sessions for 50 weeks $7500
Bi-weekly 60-minute sessions for 50 weeks $3750
Once-a-month 60-minute sessions for 1 year $1800
