The initial consultation for therapy is 30 minutes and free.
After the initial consultation is an intake session, where I gather a more comprehensive history to learn more about you, your presenting concern and psychological history, your experiences growing up, your identities, and the different contexts and environments you navigate on a regular basis. An intake session is $170 and lasts about 50-60 minutes.
Individual Therapy Sessions
All appointments after the initial consultation and intake are individual therapy sessions. An individual therapy session is $150 for a 50-60 minute session. Fees are collected at the time of session. I currently take “out of pocket” payments in cash, check, and charge.
I have a small number of low fee slots for clients with limited resources. If you are interested in a low fee slot, please let me know during our initial consultation.
Out of Network
While I am currently not contracted with any insurance companies, I can bill out of network for clients who have these types of benefits. I will provide you with a superbill, and then you would submit this to your insurance company to receive reimbursement. Each plan may have different benefits or percentages of reimbursement, so it is important to check beforehand with your insurance company about your specific plan. Clients are responsible for deductible and co-pays. If you are a student and have your school’s insurance plan, you may have good out of network benefits.
Good questions to ask your insurance company about out of network benefits include:
Does my plan cover out of network outpatient mental health visits?
Do I have a yearly maximum number cap on visits?
What is my out of network deductible for outpatient mental health?
How much of my deductible has been met this year? When does it reset?
What is my out of network coinsurance (copay) for outpatient mental health?
Do I need a referral from an in network provider to see someone out of network?
How do I submit claims forms/a superbill for reimbursement?
Is preauthorization for outpatient mental health visits necessary?
