Fees

Complimentary Phone Introduction

I offer an initial 15 minute conversation by phone at no charge so that we can see if I am an effective fit for your needs. This is a more of a general introduction.

 

If my therapeutic training/strengths and your needs seem to be a solid fit, we will schedule an initial intake session.

 

Initial Intake Session

The initial intake session is $115 for 50 minutes. The practice policy explanation, signing paperwork and limits of confidentiality take about 20 minutes. The remaining session time is for you to share more details and specific goals for therapy.

 

Standard Sessions

If we are still an effective match after the intake session, we will schedule our first session. The standard fee for all remaining sessions is currently $135 per 50 minutes session for 2024.

If I do not feel that I am the best match for your needs or you don’t feel a natural fit with me as a therapist, I will gladly provide referrals. This process is to ensure that your therapeutic experience is the most effective and natural fit going forward.

 

I do not accept insurance but will provide a receipt for you to personally file.

 

I have limited, reduced fees for financial challenges. I will provide more information regarding reduced fees by phone. 

 

Payment must be received before each session begins.

I accept cash, credit, debit and check payments.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost.

 

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

 

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.

 

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services.

  • You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
