Cost Effectiveness and Fees
I charge $120.00 per session for individual, couples or family sessions. Therapy is a process that is dependent upon the joint efforts of both the therapist and the client(s). While it is not possible to predict the number of sessions that you will choose to attend, nor to completely guarantee success, most of my clients successfully end services after fifteen to twenty meetings. Significant relief is frequently experienced within ten meetings.
This means that for somewhere between $1000.00 and $2000.00 you could reach goals such as: significantly improve your individual happiness, establish the relationship you dreamed of having with your children, improve your marriage, or successfully launch your teen into adulthood. Your investment in therapy promises long lasting returns.
I am a preferred provider with First Choice insurance. Most other insurance companies will cover my services as an out of network provider. When choosing out of network services you will usually be responsible for a larger portion of the total fee. The difference varies greatly, depending upon your policy. I recommend that clients contact their insurance provider to clarify coverage.
Should I Use Insurance?
To use your insurance benefits or not, is a personal choice dependant upon many factors. Insurance makes psychotherapy easier to afford. However, the trade off is that mental health services are only payable for clearly diagnosed conditions. The diagnosis that your clinician makes will become a permanent part of your medical record. The only way to be absolutely certain that this record will never be used unethically is to pay for services "out of pocket".
Visa, Mastercard, and Discover Credit Cards Accepted.
