Fees and Policies for Counseling
The fee for the initial consultation is a flat fee of $150. The full fee for each additional session is also $150 and I see patients a minimum of once a week. If the family is not able to pay the full fee I may be able to lower it depending on my availability and the family's financial circumstances. In these cases I may use a slidding fee scale to determine the fee. If you are hoping to receive a reduced fee it is helpful to bring proof of income to the initial consultation. I do not work directly with any insurance companies but I am able to provide receipts for out-of-network benefit reimbursements. Please call your insurance company to find out if they are able to provide you with this service. However, using health insurance for mental health services may have particular drawbacks that you should be aware of before starting. Please tell me if you are interested in using health insurance so I can explain these drawbacks and you can make an informed decision.
Please provide 24 hours notice for cancelling appointments. Failure to do so will result in you being charged for the full session. If you do not show up for a scheduled appointment you will be charged the full fee of the session. If an appointment is canceled with less than 24 hours notice and a make-up session can be scheduled for the same week then no fee will be charged for the missed session.
I accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
