Fees & Insurance

Fees

 

As of January 1, 2020, fees are as follows:

 

​For individuals:

  • 60 minute initial consultation: $175

  • 55 minute follow up session: $150

For couples:

  • 90 minute initial consultation: $250

  • 75 minute follow up session: $175

  • 90 minute follow up session: $200

 

Sessions occur weekly or every other week, depending on your needs. For couples, there is an optional Gottman assessment, which is a comprehensive, online evaluation of your relationship. The fee for the Gottman assessment is $49. 

I will automatically charge your credit card at the end of each session, unless you request to pay by check or cash.

 

 

Sliding Scale

I set aside several reduced fee time slots per week specifically for people with insufficient out-of-network insurance benefits and lower or moderate incomes. The sliding scale for couples is $100-$200, and for individuals it is $60-$150. I also participate in the Open Path Collective to offer reduced fee therapy in some cases. Please contact me for details.

Insurance

I do not participate in any private insurance plans. However, in many cases, insurance companies will pay for 50-80% of the cost of therapy through out-of-network benefits. I can help you understand your benefits so that therapy is more affordable for you. I can provide documentation for you to submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement.

To find out what your out-of-network benefits are, call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask the following questions:

  • Do I have benefits for out-of-network psychotherapy?

  • Is there a deductible? How much have I reached? When does the deductible reset (usually it is January 1)?

  • What are the out-of-network benefits for CPT codes 90791 (initial assessment), 90834 (individual psychotherapy), 90837 (individual psychotherapy), and 90847 (conjoint/family therapy)?

  • Do I need any pre-authorization to receive these services out-of-network?

  • Can I submit claims electronically? How long does it take to process?
