Therapy takes a financial and time commitment.
But it’s also a place to get healing and hope.
My fee for a standard counseling session is $115.
If you’ve made the decision to work with me, then you’re ready to get down to business. And I am too. I work with clients to laser-focus on what they need and where they’re going, which means that we aren’t going to spend years together tip-toeing around looking for solutions. Most of my clients benefit from a short-term treatment approach (typically around 18-20 sessions, spread between weekly, bi-weekly and eventually monthly appointments).
We maximize our short time together by:
- Coming up with objective and measurable goals at your first appointment.
- Using questionnaires, assessments, and sometimes “homework” assignments between appointments to keep you on track.
- Learning from those assignments outside of the session to look at real results.
As I work with all clients exclusively online, I require clients to keep a credit card on file through my secure client portal that will be charged for the cost of each appointment.
I do not bill insurance for the cost of counseling services, and am considered an Out of Network provider. However, you may be entitled to reimbursement by your insurance company for part of the cost. These reimbursements typically range between 35%-75% of the cost for these services.
If you’re interested in seeing if your insurance company will reimburse you for the cost of counseling services, I can provide you with a “Superbill”, which is essentially a medical receipt for services that you can submit to your insurance company.
Important Note About Using Insurance for Therapy
There are some potential pitfalls you should consider when using health insurance to pay for therapy. A lot of people use their insurance benefits to pay for counseling services because it provides an economical way to get the help they need. However, I believe there are some things you should know about what you’re giving up for that co-pay. More information here:
Many Flex Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts will also help pay for services. An invoice is emailed to you after each appointment, and you may submit it to one of the accounts if you choose. Additionally, if your FSA or HSA provided you with a debit card, in most cases I can charge that card directly as well.
I cannot guarantee reimbursement by your insurance company, HSA or FSA. It is up to each company and provider to determine if they will reimburse you based on your plan and coverages.
