I accept some forms of insurance, and most PPO plans will offer coverage or benefits even if I am
outside of their network. I would be happy to contact your insurance company to determine coverage.
If you are covered, your PPO plan will reimburse part or all of your fee. Upon request, I will give you a
"Super-bill" fee statement for you to submit directly to your insurance company for reimbursement. I
will work with you as you work with your insurance company to receive maximum benefits.
Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Please
check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
•Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
•What is my deductible and has it been met?
•How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
•What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
•Is approval required from my primary care physician?

Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis. I offer a sliding FEE SCALE
which is AFFORDABLE and based on need, (income verification) and readiness
for counseling. The range is: $65-$125 per 50 minute session, the average
session is $85.00 per 50-minute session. My regular billable fee is $125.00. Fee
is set during the first session for the first and following sessions.
If My Fee is Too Expensive:
If my fee is too expensive for you then let’s discuss this in the initial consultation
session. Several options may be available, including: fewer sessions per month;
shorter sessions; group sessions, a reduced fee (based on income), or referral to
another practitioner. If a reduced fee is agreed upon, it will be adjusted upwards if
your financial situation improves.
