Cost of Sessions
My fee for couples sessions is $180, with sessions ranging from 60-75 minutes. Individual sessions are set at $150 per 50 minute session. Payments are accepted via cash, check, or credit card. As I am not an in-network provider, please see the insurance statement below and check with your provider to see if you have "out-of-network" benefits if you are seeking insurance reimbursement. Limited spots for sliding scale may be considered for clients who experience financial hardship. Please reach out for more information.
Mental health services may be covered in part or in full by your health insurance plan. Please check your coverage carefully and consider asking your provider the following questions:
Do I have "out-of-network" mental health insurance benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
What is my "co-insurance"?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
What is the coverage amount per session?
Is approval required from my primary care doctor?
In instances where out-of-network benefits are covered, you will be responsible for payment at the time of service and your insurance will reimburse your expenses.
Benefits of Paying Out-of-Pocket
Paying out-of-pocket allows for more freedom, privacy, and independence in your engagement in therapy. Insurance companies mandate a diagnosis, oversee your health records, and may seek access to your information while in therapy. In addition to meeting a deductible, there may also be limits to the number of sessions covered per year, regardless of your level of care. Furthermore, you may be limited to in-network providers which can narrow your chances of finding the right fit for you. When considering the implications of using insurance, paying out-of-pocket is a better fit for some. Please feel free to call me to further discuss any questions.
