Rates & Insurance

Rates

My fee is $185 for your initial session and $175 for ongoing sessions.

I take Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, though many of my clients prefer private pay, due to the potential downfalls of using insurance.

Things to consider:

With insurance, I am required to give you a mental health diagnosis , which then becomes part of your permanent medical record and can be considered a pre-existing condition. Most of my clients don’t meet the criteria for serious mental health disorders. With insurance, I am less in control of the privacy of your client record and personal information. I have to give reports of your progress each week to your insurance company.  Insurance can dictate our work, only allowing you a certain number of sessions, no matter what new life stressors arise.

Insurance

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

(If you would like more information on how to use your out of network benefits, click here.)

Payment

I accept cash, check, HSA/HRA cards, and all major credit cards as forms of payment. I also accept payment via PayPal and you can pay directly on my site on this page.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.

Any Other Questions

Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
