Fees

My standard fee is $140 per 50 minutes for all clinical services (procedure code 90834 and 90847). 

My initial assessment and treatment plan usually involves 3-5 hours 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 $140 per hour, unless agreed otherwise.  Brief email communications are provided pro bono.

Please note that I am not an in-network provider for any insurance carrier.  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.
