I am a fee-for-service provider and therefore do not accept insurance. However, your payment may be reimbursed through Out-of-Network benefits, a Medical Flex Spending account or a Health Savings Account. (Please check with your resource to verify reimbursement requirements). Payment for sessions are due at the time of service. All charges incurred are the responsibility of the client. I accept all major credit cards as a form of payment.
I also offer longer session times for couples, an approach that has been shown in research to result in better outcomes.
My rates are as follows:
Individual sessions: $170 (55 minutes), Intake session is $190
Couples sessions: $275 (85 minutes), Intake session is $300
Quick facts about the benefits of seeing a fee-for-service provider:
1) Since insurance does not cover relational difficulties such as couples and family therapy, they require a DSM-IV-TR diagnosis for one of the members. As a fee-for-service provider, I do not have to give you a mental health diagnosis. 2) Mental health diagnoses can follow you and be documented on health records. They also may affect life insurance applications, health insurance applications and other benefits or services. 3) Together, we can determine how many times we meet instead of the insurance company making that decision. 4) Since a treatment plan, notes and billing information are not being released to an insurance company, a greater amount of confidentiality is in place for you.
