Our regular fee is $150 per session. In cases where there is no health insurance, we can negotiate a discount to our full fee to allow people to participate in therapy. Our billing office will assist you in billing your insurance company for any services covered by your benefit package. Most insurances require a patient co-payment, which is expected at each session. This policy allows us to focus on therapeutic goals and to keep our fees as low as possible.
Many health insurance plans cover services for psychiatric evaluation and psychotherapy. Managed health care plans such as HMOs may have certain rules, limitations, and procedures, including requirements for pre-authorization before your first visit. Check your plan booklet or benefits office for more information about your coverage.
