Because I believe you should be empowered to make your own mental health care decisions, independent of diagnosis and restrictions from insurance companies, I only accept direct payment for services provided.
My standard rate for 45-50 minute therapy sessions is $180 and $110/hour for report writing services. A sliding fee scale may be available upon request. Payment is expected at the time of service and can be paid in cash, check, or credit card.
In many cases clients may be able to use flexible spending accounts, medical savings accounts, health reimbursement accounts, or out of network benefits to offset the cost of my services to you. For more information on if these options are available to you, contact your health insurance company or human resources representative.
The benefits to paying directly for services include:
- You can preserve more privacy without concern that insurance companies or employers will be able to review your personal information that you discuss during sessions.
- You can fully participate in decision-making regarding duration of treatment, frequency of visits and goal setting without intrusion or micromanaging from insurance companies.
I invite you to contact me to discuss your goals and to schedule a complimentary phone consultation appointment.
