Fees are $170 per 45 minute session, with payment expected at the time of each session. Longer sessions of 60 and 75 minutes are available, if appropriate. Payment is due on the date that services are provided. Telephone consultation with client or others on client’s behalf will be billed as a session if the call exceeds 15 minutes. If there is a fee due for telephone consultations, missed sessions or late cancels, payment is expected at the next session. Please be advised that insurance companies differ in their policies from 0–90% reimbursement for outpatient mental health counseling and you agree to be responsible for fees not covered.
I do not work directly with insurance companies; however, clients can get reimbursement with out-of-network benefits. I am happy to help determine what the level of reimbursement will be in order to estimate the cost of therapy. I will also provide monthly invoices for clients to submit with insurance claims.
Payment is due at the time of service unless other arrangements are made in advance. Cash, checks and credit cards accepted.
Continuity is crucial to the effectiveness of the services you receive. Since I have reserved a time slot for you, you are expected to keep appointments as scheduled. If an appointment is cancelled, rescheduled, or missed, with less than 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full fee for that session. Please note, fees for missed sessions are not reimbursable by insurance companies.
The relationship between you and your therapist is confidential. No information concerning you will be released without your written permission unless one of the following exceptions applies. Exceptions, as specified by law, include situations of clear and imminent danger to yourself or others, child/elder abuse or neglect, and court order. Use of insurance forms to obtain third-party payments serves as authorization of release of information to your insurance company.
Make an Appointment
Before setting up an initial appointment, client and therapist will decide upon a mutually agreed upon day and time to meet weekly. Sessions usually run 45-60 minutes. In some cases clients will benefit from an extended session of 75 minutes. Because finding a therapist who is a good fit is of utmost importance, I offer a no-cost 15-minute phone consultation to all prospective clients. Please contact me to discuss your situation, as well as ask questions about therapy and how I can help you.
