Cost of Care

Many questions have probably crossed your mind as you have considered reaching out to a mental health professional for help. One was probably "What will therapy cost?"  My fee for a 50 minute individual session is $120.  When considering the cost of care an important question to ask yourself is "What amount is too much to invest in improving the quality my life?" 


Payment Options

I accept payment by cash, check, debit card, health savings account card, and all major credit cards. Payment plans are available if you would like to pay for your care over time. Discounts are available for 10 or more session in paid in advance.  In cases of financial hardship we may agree to a needs based reduction in fees.


I am a participating provider with a number of insurance plans and will file . Arrangements with all others can be made as an out-of-network provider. This means that you will you be responsible for your charges at the time of the visit but I will file your insurance for you.  You do not need to file your own insurance.  Your insurance company will reimburse you according to the terms of your policy. All insurance companies require a mental health diagnosis be given in order to pay for services. This diagnosis will become a part of your permanent health information. 

What to Expect

Our first 2 to 4 sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs and desired outcomes. Evaluation generally consists of talking about what prompted your call to schedule an appointment, reviewing past events that may be contributing to the situation, and exploring your goals.  I may also suggest that you complete assessments to help identify or validate mental health conditions. At the end of the evaluation period I will suggest a plan of care that will guide our future work together. 


The frequency and length of therapy session varies by patient and condition. The most often recommended treatment plans include weekly sessions that are 50 minutes long.
