Fees and Payments
Please pay at the beginning of the session - I prefer the balance of the session to be spent focusing on you. I accept checks, Venmo, cash, or credit cards. If you wish to pay by credit card, an added cost up to $5 may apply. I will be happy to set up credit card payments at our initial session.
50-minute sessions are $140
If your financial circumstances are such that you cannot afford my standard fee, I am able to adjust your fee between $120 and $140. I ask that you consider carefully what you are able to pay and not request a lower fee if you are able to afford the regular fee.
Longer sessions are optimal for Couple's Therapy.
75 minutes (1.5 session) is $210
100 minutes (a double session) is $280
The provision for an adjusted fee as described above also applies to these sessions.
I do not take insurance because I believe that psychotherapy should be a confidential and private process. Your psychotherapeutic progress and evaluations of the challenges you face are best worked in a collaborative and private manner between the two of us. Insurance providers will require that you be diagnosed with a mental health disorder, which will become permanent on your medical records. This not only compromises your privacy and confidentiality, it may impact your future eligibility and cost if you wish to make a change in your insurance. If you want to use your insurance and your insurance company reimburses for out-of-network providers, I will provide you with an invoice that you can submit for reimbursement.
Please call 48 business day hours in advance to cancel an appointment. You will be charged your full fee for any missed appointment without a 48 business day hour notice of cancellation.
