SESSIONS & FEES
My fee is $140 for a 50-minute session and $210 for an 80-minute session. I have a select amount of sliding scale slots and if finances are an issue for you we can discuss this option. I find weekly therapy is most effective and only offer every other week appointments after we have an established relationship, progress has been made and we both feel it is in your best interest. Appointments are usually scheduled at the same time each week.
24-HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY
In order to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment. You are responsible for the full payment of the missed session without the required notice.
I do not accept insurance directly, however I can provide a form that you can submit for reimbursement. Some clients report significant reimbursement, others use an HSA, and others are not covered.
To determine if you have mental health coverage, the first thing you should do is check with your insurance carrier. Check your coverage carefully and find the answers to the following questions:
What are my mental health benefits?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
How many therapy sessions does my plan cover?
How much does my insurance pay for an out-of-network provider?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
In general, the law protects the confidentiality of all communications between a client and psychotherapist. No information is disclosed without prior written permission from the client.
However, there are some exceptions required by law to this rule. Exceptions include:
Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. The therapist is required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. The therapist is required to notify the police.
If a client intends to harm himself or herself. The therapist will make every effort to work with the individual to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
