Intake/New Client Appointment (60 minutes): $165
Regular Individual Therapy (55 minutes): $150

My sliding scale fee spots for those who are uninsured and experiencing financial hardship are presently full.

Insurance

I am in-network with most Blue Cross Blue Shield plans.

Upon arranging our first appointment and receipt of your insurance information, I will verify your coverage and inform you of what your estimated out-of-pocket cost may be. Keep in mind that your plan may have a deductible that needs to be met before you begin paying your co-payment. The estimate provided does not guarantee that the services you receive will be covered. In the event that your insurance company determines that your services are not covered, you will be fully responsible for fees. 

For all other insurance plans, I am considered an out-of-network provider.

You may be able to receive reimbursement from your insurance company if your policy includes out-of-network benefits. I can provide documentation (called a "Super Bill") to aid in this process. I recommend you contact your insurance company to learn about reimbursement rates and policies. Please know that in order to use insurance, you need to qualify for a mental health diagnosis that describes the focus of therapy.

Questions to ask when you contact your insurance company:

  • Does my plan include mental health benefits? 

  • What is my deductible and has it been met?

  • How many mental health sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?

  • How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network mental health provider?

  • How do I obtain reimbursement for therapy with an out-of-network provider?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session?

  • Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Cancellations and Missed Appointments

When you make an appointment I hold that time specifically for you, so I ask that if you cannot make your appointment time you contact me as soon as possible. Late cancellations under 24 hours before the appointment are charged the full session fee. Insurance does not cover fees for missed appointments or late cancellations. Illnesses, emergencies, and inclement weather exceptions apply.
