PAYMENTS & FEES
I am an “out-of-network provider” which means I do not participate “in-network” with any insurance plans. This allows me to truly tailor services to each client’s needs. Upon request, I am happy to provide you with the necessary form (called a “superbill”) to submit to your insurance company for “out of network” (OON) reimbursement. Each insurance plan is different, so if you are interested in getting OON reimbursement, it is important to contact your insurance company directly to find out what your OON benefits are.

Rates for typical services are as follows:
Initial 60 minute evaluation/consultation: $185
Individual therapy session (50-60min): $165
Individual therapy session (35-45min): $150
Individual therapy session (16-30min): $80
Family treatment session (45-60min): $165
CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel an appointment, please contact me by phone or email with 24 hours advanced notice in order to avoid late cancellation or “missed appointment” charges. These fees are billed directly to you and cannot be submitted for insurance reimbursement.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: Recommendations regarding the frequency of visits is usually determined by the individual needs of each client/family. Therefore, these matters will be discussed at the end of your first appointment. If attendance to sessions is inconsistent and/or infrequent, this may impact the overall success of treatment. As a result, the continuation of treatment may be impacted if sessions are not maintained according to treatment recommendations.
NO SURPRISES ACT
The No Surprises Act was passed in December 2020, under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, with the aim of protecting consumers from receiving unexpected medical bills.
The Good Faith Estimate provision of the No Surprises Act federally mandates that “out-of-network” healthcare providers must give clients an estimate of anticipated healthcare items and services, using what is called a “Good Faith Estimate.” This took effect on January 1, 2022.
Here is additional information on the customers rights under the No Surprises Act, along with more information about a Good Faith Estimate.

I am an “out-of-network provider” which means I do not participate “in-network” with any insurance plans. I am happy to provide clients with the necessary form (called a “superbill”) to submit to your insurance company for “out of network” (OON) reimbursement. Whether your insurance will reimburse, and how much, depends on your plan.

How do I know what my out-of-network (OON) benefits are?
It is the client’s responsibility to contact your insurance company to find out about your insurance policy and associated benefits. Here is a list of questions that may be helpful when contacting your insurance company about OON benefits.
