I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation so we can get to know each other a little bit and see if we'd be a good fit to work together.
The private pay (non-insurance) fee for the first session is $160. The private pay fee for all sessions after that is $140. This rate applies for both individual and couples therapy. Sessions are 50-55 minutes long.
I'm in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS PPO only, not HMO). Most clients with BCBS see me for just $10-40/session (their copay). If you're wanting to use your BCBS insurance, it's a good idea to check the back of your card first; if it says to call another company for mental health information, that means you are not covered by BCBS for mental health services. If you wish to use a different insurance to pay for your sessions, you may be able to obtain reimbursement for a percentage of my fees through out-of-network benefits. Most people with out-of-network benefits end up paying half of my private pay fee or less. As a courtesy, I'll call your insurance for you and let you know what your mental health benefits are.
We will discuss your fee and payment options during our first phone contact, before scheduling your first session. All fees may be paid by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express). I also accept Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards.
