Fees & Insurance

A standard session is $150 for 60 minutes. In rare instances when a sessions out of the office would occur, the fee is $175 for 60 minutes. 90 minute sessions are $225. While I do not bill insurance companies directly, I will provide you with the invoice you need to file a claim for reimbursement. Many insurance companies will reimburse you for a portion of the costs incurred if you provide them with an invoice of paid services.

I am committed to providing you with the best services possible and have found that third-party payers, such as insurance companies, can potentially interfere with effective treatment and raise issues regarding confidentiality. For example, they may request medical records to further justify the need for therapy. Insurance companies can also limit the number of therapy sessions and will require a mental health diagnosis to be reimbursed. In some instances, therapy will be beneficial but there is not an appropriate diagnosis so reimbursement would be denied. While having a documented diagnosis should not affect obtaining insurance or changing providers, renewing a life insurance policy may be affected as a diagnosis would be considered a preexisting condition. There also may be other restrictions such as reimbursing for individual therapy only and not couples or family therapy.

Please read your insurance policy carefully or contact your insurance provider so you understand your coverage and if filing a claim will be beneficial.
