Counseling is an investment in your life, health, relationships, family, and future. Cash, a FREE APP like Venmo where you text payment to me, or check are preferred and accepted at the beginning of each counseling session. Visa, Discover, AE, or Mastercard are also accepted including cards associated with using your flex or health care saving account which offers tax savings too. You can choose to use your credit card on a regular basis or as a back up if you forget your therapy payment, etc.
Insurance for Counseling This is a boutique style private counseling practice not a managed care driven mental health clinic. Most of my clients choose not to submit for Out of Network reimbursement or use insurance since they value the privacy and control this practice offers. If you choose to use insurance for counseling reimbursement, I can work with you as an out of network provider. Usually PPO or POS plans are in this category. Many of my clients who use their OON (out of network) benefits get reimbursed a percentage of the counseling fee. It varies quite a bit but is often in the 50-70% range. Others use their Health or Flex Account which may cover all of it and allows tax advantages. You’ll need to first check your plan to determine benefits for licensed counselors as OON providers, if there’s a deductible and if its been met, and what percentage they reimburse for individual or family counseling. Some will only reimbues a % of what they consider R&C for reasonable and customary. I can provide you with a monthly receipt with the necessary info of what you paid me so you may obtain any available counseling fee reimbursement based on your plan. Session fees are paid weekly at the time of your service. If we are meeting online or in person, you have the option to pay for your session online with a card.
Counseling Fees The return on investment (ROI) and value for therapy can be immeasurable as its goal is to improve your life, relationships, health, family, and well-being. 50 min. Individual, Child or Couples Counseling is 120. 80 min. Individual, Child or Couples Counseling is 190. 50 min. Individual or Couples Virtual Counseling is 110.
The initial session/assessment is about an hour. It is 140. If indicated or requested, a longer initial session can be scheduled. Some busy professionals prefer longer therapy sessions or intensives to work on specific issues. This may be a good choice for those who need relief fast or have a hectic schedule or travel commitments where longer less frequent sessions are preferred.
