Fees

My standard fee is between $150-$170 per 50-minutes for all clinical services. 

My initial assessment and treatment plan usually involves 1 hour of administrative work, which is provided pro bono.  Ongoing administrative services associated with your treatment, such as site visits, report writing, record reading, consultation with other professionals, telephone conversations (other then brief scheduling issues), will be prorated and billed at $150 per hour, unless agreed otherwise.  Brief text/email communications are provided pro bono.  Detailed or frequent text/email communications that require time to read/respond are considered part of our clinical work and are billed at $2.20 per minute (please discuss this communication option with me prior to agreement). 

Please note that I am not an in-network provider for any insurance carrier, except for Aspire (CHOMP) through 2019.  Payment for all services is the financial responsibility of the client.  However, some insurance companies will pay for "out-of-network" services (PPO).  Clients should remember that my services are rendered and charged to the client, not an insurance carrier.  It is the client’s responsibility to know his/her insurance policy with regards to reimbursement for rendered services.  Please call your insurance carrier to inquire about mental health services.  I will be happy to provide you with a comprehensive statement (Superbill) that you can submit to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.  I can also provide you a document to advocate for mental health services if requested by you.  Click here for more on insurance coverage and mental health benefits.

Cancellation Policy

I ask that you respect a 24 hour notice if you need to cancel an appointment.  If you fail to show for a scheduled appointment or cancel with less then 24 hours notice, you will be charged the full fee for the session.  Unavoidable emergencies (car breakdown, illness of self or a child, etc.) will not be charged.  Just communicate with me the circumstances.  Even with less then 24 hours notice, if I am able to fill the reserved hour, I will not charge you.
