Finding a therapist who is a good fit can be hard. For that reason, I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation, so you have an opportunity to ask questions and get a feel for my work.
The out-of-pocket fee per 45-50 minute individual therapy session is $125. The out-of-pocket fee per 45-50 minute relationship/couples therapy session is $150. Shorter and longer appointments are also available at prorated fees.
A limited number of sliding scaleslots are available for those who are unable to pay the full fee. Please inquire if this is an option you'd like to explore. Insurance I am in-network with Pacific Source Health Insurance (Voyager, PSN, and Navigator plans).
If you wish to use an insurance I am not paneled with to pay for services, you may check with your insurance company to see if they provide reimbursement for "out of network" expenses. If they do, I can provide an out-of-network statement for you to request reimbursement. Note: I am not liable if your insurance denies any of these claims, so be sure to get all the information from your insurance company before coming in for your appointment.
I am generally not able to bill insurance for couples/ relationship counseling. This is because insurance companies only cover services that are focused on treating a diagnosed mental health (medical) condition. This means that many of the topics that folks seek counseling for with me such as fostering intimacy in a relationship, improving communication, recovering from an infidelity, or sexuality issues are generally NOT covered by insurance.
Payment and Cancellation Policies
Payment is due at the time of each session. Sessions can be cancelled or rescheduled up to 48 hours prior to the scheduled appointment. While I know that life often happens in unexpected ways, there is a cancellation fee of $50 for any appointments canceled with less than 48 hours notice. Clients who do not show for an appointment will be charged the full fee for the scheduled service. The purpose of this policy is to keep overhead costs covered.
