Fees & Policies

SESSION LENGTH AND FREQUENCY // Sessions range from 45 – 55 mins depending on individual factors.  I ask for a weekly commitment to therapy.  At this time I do not currently see patients on an intermittent or every-other-week basis.

FEE // My current full rate is $145 per session due at time of service. I accept payment by cash, check, credit/debit, HSA, and FSA. For private pay individuals, please inquire about sliding scale availability if needed.

IN-NETWORK INSURANCE // I am currently an in-network provider with First Choice, Kaiser PPO, and Aetna.

OUT-OF-NETWORK INSURANCE // ​I am an out-of-network provider for other insurances.  Your insurance plan may offer partial or full reimbursement for services with me. I can provide you with the appropriate billing statements, i.e. superbills, to submit with your claims for reimubursement.  While I am happy to offer guidance in this process, submitting these claims is the responsibility of the patient and payment for each session is due in full at the time of service.

Please consult your insurance plan prior to start of therapy to clarify your mental health benefits, in-network vs. out-of-network benefits, deductible details, and co-pay information.

GOOD FAITH ESTIMATES // In compliance with the No Surprises Act, a Good Faith Estimate of total annual charges will be provided to Private Pay and Out of Network patients prior to first visit.  

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises  or call 1-800-985-3059.

CANCELLATIONS // Please note I use an allotment-based cancellation policy rather than a window-of-notice policy (e.g. 24 or 48-hour notice).  Beyond a limited number of cancellations per year I require a $75 cancellation fee for additional missed sessions.  This fee is not covered by insurance.  I am glad to answer your questions about this policy to assist you in factoring in the financial cost of treatment.
