Rates & Insurance

Rates

$150 initial consultation

$110 per 50 minute individual counseling session

*Sessions run 50-minutes unless otherwise scheduled

Phone calls: I do not charge for phone calls under 15 minutes. However, phone calls that exceed 15 minutes with clients or collateral contacts (ie. school counselors, doctors, CASA or social workers, etc) will be charged at a prorated individual fee of 100 per hour. Please note that many insurance companies will not reimburse for phone contact.

Insurance

I am a Preferred Provider in Anthem Networks, within the HMO and PPO plans. I accept Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Anthem HealthKeepers Insurance.

I am also an Out of Network Provider, which means I can provide supporting documentation in order for you to file a claim for reimbursement from your health insurance provider.

*Before contacting me, please call your insurance company and have sessions authorized and verify what your co-payment or co-insurance amount will be. This is to assist you in understanding your health insurance benefits, insurance requirements, copay and other important information

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Payment

I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you will be charged for the full rate of the session.

Any Other Questions

Please contact me for any additional questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
