HOW MUCH IS A SESSION? WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE?
My standard fee is $100.00 per one-hour session, unless agreed upon differently. Clients are expected to pay the standard fee at the time of services. I accept payment by cash, check, or card. Please contact me if any problems arise during the course of therapy regarding your ability to make timely payments.
It is my professional belief that those in need of therapy should receive it. If my session fee is the only reason keeping you from beginning the treatment process, please discuss this with me during your initial consultation.
My rate is generous and most clients find that I am able to help them access the quality care that they have been seeking without making finances an additional source of stress. I have created a few lower fee slots for clients whose finances cannot support full-fee for ongoing therapy. Documentation is necessary.
At this time,
I only take private pay. This means you as the client you are responsible for the full session fee at the time of service. However, if you wish to use insurance, I can provide you with a "Superbill" to request reimbursement from your insurance company. Your insurance provider will determine if therapy services will be reimbursed in full or in part.
Below are questions that are helpful to ask your insurance provider
1. Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
2. What is my deductible and has it been met?
3. What is the coverage amount per session?
4. Is approval required from my primary physician?
