My fee is $180 per 50-minute contact hour. Some clients may qualify for a reduced fee. Fees for counseling also cover peripheral services generally requiring less than 15 minutes at a time, such as:
- phone calls, emails, or texts for support
- statements of attendance, superbills, if requested
- research and provision of referrals when appropriate
- collaboration with other members of your support system, such as psychiatrists, for the sake of your care, with your signed consent
Preferred payment is cash or check, credit cards and PayPal are also accepted. I also work with clients covered by the Victim Compensation Program.
While I am not currently on any insurance panels, some insurance companies will provide partial reimbursement of out-of-network providers. It is best to check with your insurance company directly for details about your coverage. Many insurance companies require a ‘qualifying diagnosis’ and some clients prefer to get counseling by private pay or on a sliding scale to maintain confidentiality and avoid diagnostic labels.
