Fees

50 minute session: $175  • 75 minute session: $250

 

Fees are due at the beginning or end of each session by check, cash, credit card or the Venmo app unless prior arrangements have been made. 

 

Policies

Office hours are Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

 

Insurance: I offer out-of-network provider coverage. I do not accept third party payments, but I am happy to provide you with a receipt which you can submit to your insurance company. Many insurance policies will reimburse you at their ‘out-of-network provider’ rate. 

 

With self-pay, your confidentiality is protected, and decisions about therapy are made by you instead of your insurance company.

 

Confidentiality: Information related in the course of counseling will be held in the strictest confidence and will not be disclosed to any person or agency without written consent. The only exceptions are as follows: 1) Statements made regarding intention to harm self or others, 2) any acts of child or elder abuse, and 3) information that would require emergency medical intervention. Consultation may be held with other professionals if I believe it will be useful in our work.

 

Cancellations: Your time is reserved for you, so I do ask for a minimum of 24 hours advance notice if you must cancel or reschedule your appointment. Your full fee will be charged for missed appointments without the minimum 24 hour notice.  If you become ill or have an emergency that prevents you from keeping your appointment, you will not be charged for the missed appointment if we are able to find a time within the same week to reschedule.

Choosing a Therapist

Research shows that the relationship with the therapist is one of the most significant aspects of the counseling process, so it’s important you find the person right for you.  A sign that it’s a good fit is if you feel comfortable with the therapist, you feel listened to and understood. While it can take some time to develop a trusting relationship, you should always feel like you can ask questions, and feel that your therapist is respectful and caring.
