Payment is commonly made by check at the end of each week according to the following rates:
$140 per 45-minute individual session
$150 per 45-minute family session (couples)
$180 per 55-minute session
$210 per initial intake session
All other services are prorated at a rate of $180 per 45-minutes.
When needed, a write-off can be provided for payment-in-full at the time of service.
If we cannot find a way to make treatment affordable for you, I can help you find a professional who charges less. In the end, I want you to find the personal benefits of therapy to be a very valuable investment.
Insurance as a Third Party Payer
If you want to involve a health insurance company, please confirm with them regarding the portion you need to pay at the time of service with me as an OUT-OF-NETWORK provider.
When it comes to using health insurance, the best way to minimize intrusions on your privacy and maximize your treatment options is for you to bill them yourself. But the choice is yourse, I can bill them if you ask me to, or I can give you a reciept on a monthly basis so that you can file for reimbursement from your insurance company. The average insurance company will reimburse within a month.
APPOINTMENTS & missed-Appointment POLICY
My appointment policy is negotiated on an individual basis according to both of our needs. In general it resembles the following:
As we determine the frequency of sessions needed for your optimal course of treatment we will work to establish weekly standing-appointment times that are as convenient as possible for you in order to support our focused attention on you and your internal and relational experiences
Once we have established such a schedule I will charge for all scheduled appointments except when I am out of the office for vacation, holidays, or professional development. If you are using insurance to help you manage your costs, keep in mind that you are responsible for full payment of the sessions you miss, your insurance company will not reimburse for sessions not attended.
