Sessions

A standard session is 50 minutes long. My regular fees are currently $150 per session for individuals and $170 per session for couples and families. I am open to setting the fee collaboratively as we begin to work together. Special rates are available for students and associate therapists.

What you can expect
I prefer to meet weekly. In the first session, you can expect that we’ll go over some of your psychological history and background together. In the ongoing sessions, I am less interested in being updated on your day-to-day activities and more interested in your current growing edge that feels most alive. Questions I am curious to explore together each week: What is taking up most of your mental space? What unresolved conflicts do you have with others? What is making you feel alive (with anger, with grief, with fear, with joy)? How are you experiencing yourself? How are you experiencing others, including me?

Payments
I accept cash, checks as well as credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover) and HSA card payments via Ivy Pay.

Insurance
For most insurance plans, I am considered an out-of-network mental health provider. If you have a PPO plan, you might be reimbursed for 50-90%. You will pay for your sessions, I can provide you with invoices or so-called superbills, and you can submit them to your insurance company or health savings plan administrator for out-of-network reimbursement. To determine your level of reimbursement, ask your insurance company how many sessions they cover, whether there is a deductible, and what percentage they pay after the deductible has been met. If you have an unmet deductible under your insurance plan, you will be responsible for the full session fee until the deductible has been met. I can help you understand what your insurance may cover. Be aware that some insurance companies can take some time before reimbursing and sometimes do not reimburse at the same rate they originally quoted.
