Psychotherapy for couples and individuals in Silver Spring, MD

Fees & Insurance

Fees

 

Beginning January 1, 2020, and for all new clients, fees are as follows:

 

​For individuals:

  • 60 minute initial consultation: $175

  • 50 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. In addition, for couples, there is a $75 fee for the Gottman assessment, which is a comprehensive, online evaluation of your relationship. 

I will automatically charge your credit card at the end of each session, unless you request to pay by check or cash. To ensure that therapy is affordable for everyone, I also offer a limited number of spaces for a reduced fee. Please contact me for details.

Insurance and Courtesy Billing

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.

 

In many cases (particularly CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield or United Healthcare), I can offer "courtesy billing," which is when I file your out-of-network claim electronically for you. Through courtesy billing, you pay the full fee at the appointment, I file the claim on your behalf, and you receive any reimbursement directly from the insurance company. If you're interested in learning more about this option, please contact me for details.

At the Innovative Clinical Associates location, I accept Maryland Medicaid plans. I am currently full at that location.
