Fees & Payments

Make a payment


Most frequent questions and answers

My office policy is that payment is required at or before the time of service.

When requesting your initial appointment, you will be asked to enter a credit card number or use the Pay-Pal button to reserve your time. You will be charge after the service is delivered or in the event of a no-show.

An established client may pay for counseling sessions by cash, check, Visa, Master Card, or PayPay on the day of your appointment. You must cancel appointments 24-hours prior to the expected time or you will be charged the established rate.

The fee for the initial appointment is $150. thereafter each 50-minute counseling session is $125. Additional time may be requested ahead of time and as scheduling allows. Often, couples counseling take longer because there are more people involved and ninety minute sessions are common. The fee for a 90-minute session is $250.

Phone or Skype consultations will be billed at the normal rate and must be scheduled.

If you have NOT notified me 24-hours in advance of an appointment, and you fail to keep that appointment, it is my policy that you will be billed at the standard rate.

I work with several insurance companies and EAP servers and will assist you by filing your invoice; however you remain fully responsible for services rendered.

As the insurance industry changes, it is notable that some insurance carriers permit out of network payment which will help defray your expense. If your insurance company is not on the list above, please call your provider and inquire whether they have out-of-network mental health benefits. You will then pay me standard fees at time of service and I will assist you in filling for benefits with your provider. Please research this option before coming to an appointment.
