My hourly fee is $190 for individual and $200 for couples therapy. If you have any financial concerns, please discuss those with me, as I may be able to offer a sliding scale fee. You will be expected to pay for each session at the time it is held, unless we agree otherwise.
Please note that I am currently not accepting Aetna.
If you have other insurance plans with out-of-network benefits, you could see me using those. Many insurance companies cover out-of-network mental health services, so call your insurance company to find out your specific benefits. You can also use a Flexible Spending Account, offered by many employers, to cover any amount that was not covered by your health plan. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health benefits?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
How much does my plan cover for an out-of-network therapy session?
Do I need pre-authorization before beginning therapy?
I will provide a monthly statement for you, which you can submit to your insurance company. It is your responsibility to pay the fee, regardless of your benefits. Be aware that insurance companies require a diagnosis which will then become a part of your medical record.
