Rates & Insurance


Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.

I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:

  • Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
  • Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
  • Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
  • Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?

Sliding Scale Available

I offer a sliding scale for individuals who are experiencing financial hardship due to job loss, illness, lack of mental health coverage, or difficult life circumstances.  It is important to me that individuals do not hesitate to engage in therapy services due to their concern about ability to pay.  I am passionate about mental health care being available to everyone, so please do contact me with your concerns and we will figure out a payment plan that works for you.

Private Pay/Payment

Some individuals choose to work with me using private pay for the following reasons:

  • Their insurance does not include mental health benefits
  • Their insurance has a high deductible
  • I do not take their insurance at this time
  • They do not want a diagnosis sent to their insurance company

At this time, all mental health practitioners must submit a diagnosis to your insurance in order for services to be covered and for your insurance to deem it appropriate for you to receive counseling services.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.

Any Other Questions

If you are unsure of what would be best for you in regards to using your insurance versus private pay, or you are unsure how to talk with your insurance company about your benefits, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
