My standard fee is $180 per hour.
The initial evaluation for child and adolescent clients (under 18) is two hours long and costs $360.
The initial evaluation for adult clients (ages 18 and older) is 1 ½ hours long and costs $270.
Therapy sessions typically last 50 minutes and cost $180.
I offer reduced rates for college and graduate students and other individuals in financial need. If you believe you may be eligible for a reduced rate, please indicate this in your initial phone call.
I accept checks and major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Payment is due at the time of your appointment.
To save time and eliminate the hassle of weekly payment, I strongly encourage clients to complete the Electronic Payment Authorization form. This form allows me to deduct the session fee (including fees for no-shows and late cancellations) from the credit card or debit card designated on this form. Please print out this form, complete it, and bring it to the initial appointment. This information will be stored securely in your clinical file and may be updated upon request at any time.
I do not take insurance. I will provide you with a monthly statement which you may submit to your insurance company. Many insurance companies provide some reimbursement for mental health services, and I am willing to complete the necessary paperwork for you to receive any mental health benefits to which you are entitled. However, you are responsible for paying me for your sessions regardless of what your insurance company decides, and I cannot guarantee that you will be reimbursed. If you wish to be reimbursed, it is important that you discuss these issues with your insurance company prior your first appointment.
Once you have scheduled an appointment, you will be expected to pay for it unless you provide 24-hours advance notice of cancellation. You will be charged for no-shows and for appointments cancelled with less than 24-hours notice.
Please feel free to discuss any billing or payment matters with me.
Note: If you cannot open the payment form window then you may have a Pop-Up blocker installed. Try holding down the "CTRL", "ALT" or "Shift" key when clicking on the form link. That should allow the window to open. Also, check if you have Adobe Reader installed (it's free).
